Im looking at a Yamaha RX-V2600 and it has these HDMI inputs and outputs...But, looking at the current CD and DVD players in the Yamaha line, they dont even have the HDMI outputs?
I understand that its just another option along with fiber, coax, etc..but, should i really be concerned about getting components with the outputs?
I also realize this is going to be subjective and all, but i dont want to buy a reciever with all the "bells and whistles" and not utilize them if thats one of the reasons i paid all the extra money...

HDMI = HDTV and possible BlueRay/HD-DVD support.

So, if im planning on getting a plasma screen and hdtv..it would be worth it to find a dvd player with this option?

You would only find that on the newer "upconverting" dvd players..... but it'll be a waste when everything moves over to the HD-formats.

Yeah, just get something that'll do DTS and has progressive scan (which is like 99%).

Get an HD-DVD player with HDMI output ... You won't get full resolution from HD-DVD or Blu-Ray discs unless you use HDMI or DVI outputs along with an HDCP compliant monitor ...

Agreed... I love the Yamaha Receivers but not a big fan of their dvd or cd players.

What kind of speakers are you using with your setup? What price are you getting that Yamaha for?

Sounds good, I got my Yamaha for a good *** deal :). Other wise I was going to recomend the Rotel RSX-1067 or RSX-1056, but the Yamaha is more wattage than both of them... You should like the Ascendants....

Another thing that just poped into my head, I know Yamaha pushes their autoEQ thing, don't use it. Use the Phase checker, and the distance thing, but the autoEQ sounds like most autoEQ's not good....

I'm not a big fan of the H/K products. The higher end Sony, Arcam, and Pioneer Elite are all pretty good. Depends really on how much you want to spend on a disk reader....

look into denon as well, i love both my 3806 and my dvd 1920 :)




PS. the new HD-dvds will not be 1080p only up to 720p and 1080i, so if you are looking for a HD player wait for blu-ray and just get an upconverting in the time being untill the price of the HD-dvd players drop, thats what im doing :)
