Re: Who Bought the Integra DTC-9.8?
I want to try one out as well! It is likely the most current pre/pro made. That said, I am not as optimistic it would outdo the Sunfire sonically....
The TGP-V only does 2:1 HDMI switching and doesn't have the multitude of new audio formats the DTC 9.8 does, if you really want to get the most out of your Blu-ray and HD DVD players, then the DTC 9.8 isn't a bad choice as you could run them via HDMI and reap the benefits of the new audio formats, if your players will handle them.
Jerry is right on about an HDMI switcher, they are easy to use and can be integrated into most universal remotes allowing them to function seamlessly with your system.
Neither processor will allow more than one multichannel input.
As an aside, the demand for this processor is so high they are sold out and backordered now, so if you really want one, it will be a while.
