Pardon me if this is a repost for you.  For some reason it totally vanished
here:

Technology has caught up with me...

Looks like the modern world of home theater all talks HDMI.

(All my present A/V is 18 years old :-)

So I looking for receiver recommendations.

I'm looking at the Denon AVR-1312...

I love to cook with wine.     Sometimes I even put it in the food.

Denon works pretty well but is a bit overpriced. The first real question is: does i do the things i currently need. The next and more important question is: will it do the things i can foresee needing. After that = find models, and compare price, reliability and whatever else you want. You seem to have an unanswered need in dealing with some digital format (HDMI and SPDIF) to a box not able to accommodate them. There are converters, consider one of them before giving up. ?-)

Just trying to minimize the "jungle". I think the HDMI RF link will do the trick. Just so many of them to choose from with price ranges from reasonable to outrageous... Like $129 to > $800. ...Jim Thompson -- | James E.Thompson, CTO | mens | | Analog Innovations, Inc. | et | | Analog/Mixed-Signal ASIC's and Discrete Systems | manus | | Phoenix, Arizona 85048 Skype: Contacts Only | | | Voice:(480)460-2350 Fax: Available upon request | Brass Rat | | E-mail Icon at http://www.analog-innovations.com | 1962 | I love to cook with wine.

Hmmm. I might characterize that as high to unreasonable. Plus i am not all that sure that the RF link will output in a form that your existing equipment can understand. =20 A coworker bought a Ethernet (mp3) to analog converter for over $200. I said overpriced, but it does the job. Point an audio stream to it and = the sound comes out of the stereo. ?-)
