I’m look at upgrading my receiver with one that favors HDMI. Question is, the receiver of today that refer to “HDMI by-pass”. Does this mean true “by-pass” pf the HDMI signal or will my signal get some level of derogation due to running through the circuitry of the receiver? My current receiver is the Yamaha HTR-5890. I do use all 7.1 channels of audio. I currently use AudioQuest HDMI Chocolate cables and run directly from my devices to my TV’s HDMI inputs (Sony BDP-CX960 Blu-ray changer, HD DVR and SageTV HD Theater). I am looking at either the Yamaha RX-V2065BL or the Pioneer VSX-92TXH. A few things, I pretty much only use the receiver for HDTV or Blu-ray and that’s it.
