I am trying to figure out the differences between the following models:
Panasonic SA-HE100K $275
Panasonic SA-HE70S Dolby Dig/DTS $149
Panasonic SA-HE200K DTS-ES, Dolby Dig EX $349
Panasonic SA-HE9 Receiver $195.
I want to mate one of these receivers with my new Panasonic RP-82 DVD player and PT53WX42. I do want the 6 discrete inputs but don't need digital processing since the RP82 has it.
Any suggestions/recommendations?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Mike

The HE100 adds:
- DTS-ES and DD-EX (non-official decoding)
- An extra amp channel (6x100W)
- Better sound quality
- Component video switching

The HE200 adds:
- Official DD-EX decoding
- More power
- Better sound quality
- Digital re-mastering
- Variable Gain Control amp mode
- Front panel S-Video input
- More A/V inputs

There are other points for both models, but these would be the key differences.

The 100 & 200 also have phono inputs if that's important to you? I would say if you can afford it to go with the 200 but the 100 has also been getting some great reviews.

There is really no good reason to stick with components from one manufacturer. It gains you nothing, in most cases. Listen to different manufacturers, and choose the one that works the best for what you want. By limiting yourself, you may be missing out on something better. Nice choice on the DVD though.

Saying that you want 100wpc is kind of pointless, since you can't really judge an amp by it's >manufacturer's< rated output.
