Hallo, i was thinking of a faaaaar distance future upgrade to an 5 channel Amplifer and an AV Processor which could also act as an pre-amp for my music playback. I tried to do a similar test with my Yamaha RX-V781 but the sound quality i got was pure garbage. So i was wondering if there is an AV Processor out there capable of quality music playback?
Thank you for your replies in advance
What was your problem? I have had RX-V630 and now RX-V685. No problems with sound quality, but quantity! Pre-out voltage of 685 is lower. But still no problems with noise here. I have a Denon that has buzzing pre-outs and more complicated user interface.
Nowdays it's hard to find a mid-price AVR with pre-outs that follow main volume.
I use AVR for listening to TV (also multichannel UHD), BluRay, CD, Spotify and vinyl. 2ch signal as 2ch mostly. My main speakers are diy 4-way and amps are ICEpower modules. No subs needed. Multichannel integration with 2-way center channel is poor, because phase through spectrum is different. Having identical speakers for L/C/R would be optimal, and that's what I have in HT room.
