I'm just getting back into Home Theater after a multi-year break (was travelling and most things were in storage). Getting a plasma has got me going again on HT. I've got a reasonable stereo setup that I want to keep as the heart of my system (BAT CD, BAT pre-amp, Atma-Sphere monoblock OTL amps and B&W Nautilus 805 speakers). Speakers will be upgraded one of these days - but staying for now. BAT pre-amp can have one of its inputs as fixed gain (regardless of volume) so can do quite a good job for main L and R. From my old HT days, I have a Rotel 5-channel amp, a B&W CDM center speaker (all from circa 1998/9) and can rustle up some surround speakers. I would like a new processor that can act as a pre-pro for my home theater. I would like component video (and RGB and composite) switching. Must do all the latest sound formats (DD 6.1, DTS, etc.), be flexible (lots of ins and outs) and do things like lip-sync delay correction. I don't want to spend a lot of money (broke after the plasma), and if possible get something good (but not great) with the idea of upgrading in a few years. Any suggestions at different price points. So much has changed in the last six years since I was up on all this stuff).
