I tested the HK8500 last year, and thought it had the best stereo performance in its class. But a lack of time delay, for combatting lip-sync probs when using de-interlacers and plasmas, put me off. Does this replacement have a time delay (didn't see it in the spec link above)?

Saw the HK 630 in action at the Manchester Hifi show, it was jumping between DTS formats on their DTS demo disk no problem, much quicker than my Rotel. Still about 1/2 a second tho, if ur being fussy. I think the recent pioneers are quicker, but I still don't rate them as high as HK kit on the sound quality front..
