Hello everyone, and Happy World Cup Final day!
I'm looking for some advice about HDMI inputs and switchers feeding into my Yam AX863 amp (outputting to 5.1 speakers and TV).
Currently, I have a PS3, 360, Sky (newish version) inputting via HDMI. Some of these also have optical inputs for sound, but I suspect they may have been made redundent in favour of HDMI with software updates.
I'd like to add a dedicated Blu Ray player and PS4/ XBone (or both! -how greedy!), but I've already run out of inputs.
I've looked into switchers, and they seem to vary in quality. My question is: can I use one of these switchers into one of the HDMI inputs on my amp, and what would it do the overall picture and sound quality?
I'm keen to maintain a high quality audio output. If there are any doubts about this, or if there are issues with the amp recognising the various inputs, I am prepared to bin the amp and start again.
Thanks for any pearls of wisdom.
