Hey guys, I just got some cash that i wanna burn and I dont think I can hold out on a receiver till next year when they support the new HD formats. Currently im using a Yammy rxv496..pretty old school. So im looking at maybe getting the 2600. Hopefully I can hear some improvement over the previous model. Im using Paradigm Monitor 7 v2's and the current receivers 65w just isnt pushing them enough. I live in Australia and I cant find any yammy 2500's, which im pretty sure are the same as 2600 but no HDMI upconvert? The price i've had so far is $1890 aus. So what do you guys think, should i do it? Or am i shooting myself in the foot with HD? I have NO idea when HD will finally hit our shores, so could take forever. ANd i'll always be able to use Analog 5.1 if the players decode right? Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
