    Alright folks i was wondering if someone could give me a second opinion?


    I have had a technics da-sx940 Reciever for a couple of years now and it has never really been a problem to me, however i recently bought a LG 42" plasma and have the reciever hooked up to my dvd player Pioneer 575 by digital optical, i am getting terrible lip synch through the speakers, and when i hook the dvd player up by scart the sound coming from my plasma speakers is spot on, could my reciever have seen its day?? Do i need to upgrade?

    What do you think, any thoughts would be appreciated

    Cheers Paul.

    Yep!

    I've got the same problem!
    Most mid range AV Amps now have audio delay so you can get it in synch.

    Thats great cheers mate, i am not alone,

    I have been looking at the pioneer 814, which you can select your room size, things have definately moved along.

    Thanks again

    Paulxxiii,

    The room size feature on 814 won't solve your lip sync problems, you need as Gezmondo says a audio delay feature.

    The cheapest one that has it is Yamaha RX-V650 which can be had for £280 from empire direct now, and it has automatic room calibration as the Pioneer 814.

    What is your budget?

    Wasabi, sorry to but in but :blush: I am also looking for an amp that will help me avoid the same issue with a pw6. Is the 650 comparable quality with - for example - a denon avr 1905, or is the 750 the better bet. Also does the 650 upscale composite to component like the 750 ? It seems that most of the mags I buy rate the Denons way above everything else .. :rolleyes:

    Paulxxiii,

    I can't explain where it comes from apart from that the audio delay feature is the answer.

    The rx-v550 is the cheapest I believe that has audio delay feature. Price, if you would consider buying from Germany (warranty is valid here in UK, Yamaha UK has confirmed), then it would cost £205+delivery from www.hificomponents.de or www.gersdorf-shop.de/shopindex.htm or www.hirschille.de or www.mediacheckpoint.de UK price is £300!

    Considering your budget is £300, you could step up to RX-V650 for £247+delivery, but here the UK price is not too bad at £280 from Empire Direct.

    But as I suggested to tij303 in his thread, you could get the RX-V750 for £294+delivery. I'd say the maximum delivery cost is £25 depending which German E-tailer you buy from, check hirschille or hificomponents.
