ok, shortly going to buy a new av amp and I want it to be fairly future proof for the next 5 years or so. I firstly want an amp that has upscaling. The Yamaha 650/750/757 etc have video up to component, but they do not specify high def compatibility (i.e. 1080 lines etc). Now, i thought you needed a digital connection (HDmi or DVi) to have a proper digital HD signal. Reading up on the old Denon 3805 here http://www.homecinemachoice.com/cgi-bin/displayreview.php?reviewid=4426 says the the analogue component outs are fully HD ready- 100hz component level. Is there anyone who can really help me out please! Incidentally, what would be peoples recommendations please? Have seen that Denon 3805 for a good price (sub £500) And the Pioneer AX3 and AX5 are also around that price. Is the AX2 worth another £100? I haven't got a compatible display at present, but whatever i will get will be proper HD ready- be it projector or LCD.
