Cheapest amp with HDMI switching?

Guest
I know there are quite a few models coming out soon, or already out. Can anyone post a summary of new amps with HDMI switching, and approx UK prices please?

Ideally I'd like to spend under £500 for an amp with HDMI switching & a built-in DAB receiver... or is that unrealistic? I'll probably hook it up with some KEF eggs, although I haven't bought any speakers yet.

Many thanks

If I had one of these HDMI Switching efforts, can I output the video via the Amps DVI Out?

One of the better lists I have found is at AVSForum HDMI Receivers thread
Take a look at that one. :smashin:

If it is to be cheap :suicide: - JVC RX-D401S of Philips SA-XR70S might be worth locking at...

Hehehe. Especially that Philips thing will blow your socks... ;)

The SAXR70 is a Panny. Philips actually does have a very cheap HDMI switcher with DAB receiver, but that is the DFR9000.

Looks like the Panasonic SA-XR70 doesn't have multiple HDMI inputs - only 1 ! :( See http://www.avland.co.uk/panasonic/saxr70/saxr70.htm

The JVC RX-D401S (RX-402B is the same model, but in black) does have 2 HDMI inputs, and also offers upconversion from its other inputs :) See http://www.jvc.com/press/index.jsp?item=468&pageID=2&CategoryID=1

And the Philips DFR9000 does have 2 HDMI inputs, built-in DAB, and is described elsewhere on this forum. See http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=198177

So both receivers have 2 HDMI inputs and both upscale from everything to HDMI. The only difference then is that the Philips has a DAB receiver and costs a lot more than the JVC. (I have already seen prices of approx $350 for the JVC whereas the Philips is still some €650 at best).

Have you read any reviews of either of these receivers? I haven't found anywhere in the UK that has them on sale yet :(
