Have decided to get the FMJ29 instead of the DV79. Is the AVR300 still a suitable partner though? The cost of the FMJ Pre/Pro (A8 etc) is high and yet has no HDMI input facility to take advantage of the Mutichannel HDMI audio out from the FMJ29. Surely HDMI multichannel audio is the way forward? Or is it best to feed the Multichannel out from the FMJ29 to the Pre/Pro (or AVR300) through six analogue interconnects? Would like some balanced opinions, though I suspect there will be some out there that will consider using an FMJ29 with an AVR300 a non starter. Cheers, Gerald. P.S Does the FMJ29 use a different deinterlace chipset, maybe Sil 504? Is this better or worse than the Vaddis 5 used in the DV79?
