    I've just bought the Philips DFR9000 AV Rceiver and was wondering if anyone could tell me how to set it up to get the best out of it. Things like settings etc that would help realise its full potential.

    Thanks :thumbsup:

    You've actualy got one :eek: . When they become more widely availible your sure to get an answer, but for now i think it may be a case of read the manual and tweek/play.

    Yeah they are thin on the ground aren't they.

    I had trouble finding a review on them (I live in Sydney) and finally found a review on an Italian website.

    My local retailer which is the biggest in the country had to order them in.

    When I finally get it I'll play around let you know what I come up with.

    I heard that someone was running some hefty b&w speakers from them and it was a musical system so it must be good!

    Keep us informed though, especaly with regard to the sound quality and the video scaling features.

    Hi all,

    Looking al over the place for a good analoge amplifier (or class D), I came across the DFR9000. Seeing all your positive inputs on the machine I have to dig into it!

    Just one question: is it possible to convert HDMI int DVI?? (or less desirable scart or RGB)

    HDMI is DVI-D with surrund sound all wraped in a neat little cable, there are plenty of converters availible that will turn HDMI into DVI, turning it into an analouge system like scart would be a little more difficult.

    Well ..... it would be a little silly, as they bought the use of the UcD amplifier from Philips. So they sell a class D amplifier only. No receiver.
    Strange enough I could not find the info in the English pages ??? but here is the Dutch:

    Aren't the 80's back :) ??

    I thought I could at least try :)
    The MA 240 is using the same chips, they (Philips/vM) work together on the 240.

    I suppose gazbarber doesn't like van Medevoorts design :D

    The DFR9000 is not using chips in the UcD, its all component build. 6x ;)
