Default Pinching some Dollars for a prepro

I have been looking at a new processor for some time Onkyo 805 was droped due to lipsync issues. Here is the interesting part I tryed a Emotiva MMC1 and liked it real good but did not keep it. Should I give the Yamaha 861 a try? I is being clearanced at the moment and seems to be in the league with the 805. Could reorder the mmc1 but that but I want to cover all my options.

What are you looking for in a pre/pro? HDMI switching? What do you listen to/ watch more, music or movies?

100% movies
I have a lpa1 amp nht classic 4 up front with 3c center small room 11.5x16x8.5. Hdmi audio is nice to have at this point but in the near future could be must have. I was looking at the yamaha 861 seems to be good deal righ now but the mmc1 was nice.

In an other price range the Classé SSP-800 should be outstanding and have the best audio ever.

Andrew has the Integra DTC 9.8 ($1600.00) and Kennyt has given me good recommendations on it. I'm thinking about getting one myself (during the summer).
