Re: HDMI Connet
I can't respond to everything here but I do know that you won't be able to use HDMI for SACD. This still uses analog outputs for all channels. However, Dolby HD will be the first lossless audio format available. Most new receivers from larger companies like Sony, Denon and others already have this capability, and all of it will be brought to you over HDMI. I'd put everything in place to make sure you'll be able to take full advantage of this format.
