It's finally time to replace my aged (but still going strong!) Yamaha DSP E-800 processor with something that can handle HDMI and HD Audio.
The Yamaha RX-A1020 is the obvious choice, except the A1030 is about to come out which sports new ESS DACs.
It's meant to be out now, some places list it as in stock, others say it's out soon...I can't find a release date on the web.
Does anyone know:
a) When it is release in the UK?
b) When it will be reviewed? I am hoping the introduction of the ESS DAC doesn't unbalance the sound. I am sure it won't as it's a better DAC chip, but best wait for the review.
