But, the big boys need to catch in the HDMI connectivity area with their pre/pros first. Outside of the Integra DTC 9.8, we are limited in that area. So before they work on a new Blu-Ray player, we need somewhere to connect it. Don`t you think!!!
Arcam will have new Receivers and a new inexpensive Pre-Pro based on the new Receivers at the end of the summer all at the same time as their BD player.
At that time the NAD units will have their NextGen Audio Board available for their receivers and pre-pro (their new units are modular!).
Plus B&K is going to have their new Receiver out this Summer. So an American built Audiophile unit will be available.
