Hi there Very close to buying an HD-E1, but one of the main worries I have is that I may suffer lip-synch errors. I think I read about this being a possible issue on the AVSFORUM, basically it occurs when outputting sound via optical and is caused by the time it takes the player to downmix the audio to DTS. I've long made plans to counter lip synch with the possible purchase of a Felston audio delay box, however, that has always been on the assumption that it is the picture processing causing the delay, so i would need to delay the audio. However, it seems that in this case it would be the picture that would need to be delayed rather than the sound and I was wondering if there was a way to do this that was reasonably affordable? Of course I can't be sure whether I'd have this issue but if I'm spending £400 on a new player then I'd at least like to know that there was a solution should I encounter this problem. I'd also be grateful to hear from any HD-E1 owners outputting their sound via optical and whether lip synch has been a problem at all. Thanks............and Merry Xmas!!!
