    I know this is lazy but, to save me trawling through page after page of specs, does anyone know the cheapest AV amp or receiver with variable lip sync delay, digital co-ax in and 5.1 pre-outs. Don't need anything else fancy and I won't be using the power amps.

    Many thanks!

    Given the number of models out there and the difficulty of getting hold of detailed (and accurate) specs, you can see how I might want a bit of help. I'm well aware that the top of the range models from several manufacturers will answer the requirements but they are serious overkill for what I have in mind. Hence the question. So, not so lazy, more frustrated ;-)

    Maybe take a look at the Yamaha range. Ive always had Yamaha and have always been more than happy with them. Im sure their lower spec models will have all that you are looking for. What kind of cash you looking to spend?

    As little as I can get away with, I'm afraid. So long as I get the variable delay and 5.1 pre-outs

    Thanks GeeWcee,

    I checked out the Yammys and, at current street prices the 750 answers the requirements.

    I'd still be interested in hearing about alternatives though.

    I've been trawling through specs and even the ones that have lipsync delay adjustment seem very reticent about it. Its usually buried somewhere on the manufacturers website, not in the standard brochures.

    I got a Yam 750 the other week and can recommend it highly.

    Excellent performer and lip synch delay too.

    Thanks again GeWCee and sisko,

    Now seriously tempted. Did you check out Denon on the way to your decisions? (Only other one in the ballpark so far)

    Thought about the Denon, but simple reason is Richer Sounds had the Yamaha in stock and at £349 you can't go wrong.

    Yes I did before, but I have to admit that I didnt demo any of the new denons when upgrading to the 1400.

    Once again, thanks guys,

    Demos dangerous anyway with amps/receivers unless with your speakers. Either of you using the video up conversion to component? If so, are you happy? (This is an afterthought since the Yammies do it anyway)

    Yes I use the up conversion on my dvd recorder and xbox (connected via s-video).
    DVD player is thru the component input into the Amp.
    Excellent picture quality.

    I guess Yamaha rxv-650 is the cheapest AV receiver with both variable lip sync delay, digital co-ax in and 5.1 pre-outs.

    Thanks Loewe, and welcome to the forums.

    I've checked out the Yamahas and I may well go for a model or two higher than the 650 but it does, as you say, do what I asked.
