    Hdmi?

    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%).

    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....
