HDMI Upconversion....pricey


Active Member
Having just upgraded to a HD panel and thinking of HDMI sources, I have come to the conclusion its probably time to replace my amp for one with HDMI upconversion.

The Yamaha 750SE has been a lovely peice of kit and I can't take a backwards step from it....but it seems the cheapest Yammy equivilent with HDMI up-conversion I can find is the RX-V1600 - at £700! Quite a big jump in price :(

Am I missing some cheaper peices of kit? are these HDMI up-conversion amps expected to fall in price soon? or is it a case of "get the wallet out" again? :suicide:

Do you have anything with HDMI outputs yet, or should i say more than 1 thing?

Sky HD it still a bit off, so wait until prices drop more if you don't NEED it yet.
