    Hi all, Considering upgrading my A/V receiver to one that has HDMI inputs, I was wondering if any one can give me an idea of what my options are & what price there going for?

    I am fond of HK, but I don't think there newest models have an hdmi input, I'm afraid that that may be the case for most brands.


    Thanks for the info! DonnyB

    Panasonic XR-70, street price around $350 i think. Plus you get Equibit digital amps

    The XR70 has only 1 'pass-through' HDMI input. You can grab the audio from that connection, but since there's only one input, it doesn't do any switching at all.

    AFAIK, the least expensive with HDMI switching is the upcoming Marantz SR-9600.

    The upcoming Sony STRDA 71000ES will have two HDMI inputs ($2k) Denon's upcoming AVR 4806 is the premier piece to have that will have 3 HDMI inputs, one DVI in/out. (Only one HDMI/DVI output is active) ($3500)
