AVRant #49: Explicit 24p
RIP Gary Gygax. You'll be missed. Clint and Tom tackle a bunch of questions from you. Ken, Rick, Cliff and Ed… thanks for the questions. What's the deal with Blu-ray Profile 1.1 and 2.0 and receivers that decode internally? How does bass management work with Blu-ray out over HDMI? Ever think about soundproofing a room? Tried to train your family/neighbors and failed? Perhaps you're interested in Green Glue. What does THX stand for? We can't promise you'll know by the end of this Podcast. Do receivers all sound the same? Is 24p important? So many composite inputs, so little need for them. Thanks for listening and don't forget to vote for us at Podcast Alley.
I disagree on the sound differences too. To me, NAD, HK and Marantz sound better, warmer. All are very close but they add a little something of their own. I'm not a hardcore audiophile but I really can perceive a difference. I don't need any graphs to show that. Went with the Yammie anyways! (sale)
That thing on S-video and composite inputs on receivers made me laugh out loud seriously. I was showing the back of the receiver to my gf the other day and she asked: How do yo manage to understand all of this?! Well in fact, I only need HDMI connections and speaker outs. Every other output is useless.
My friend worked at good guys and frys, we would oftern a/b the avrs on two channel, the difference is there.
I do think that the average guy will not notice a difference on low end speakers, especially in ht.
On the marantz remote, you can change the aux1 to “cable” not the button of course.
