That's what you will need to be able to connect/play (simultaneously) to two different amps/AV setups. Unless you want some strange A/B switch for using a single player(?) (They're cheap enough now where it makes little sense to buy only one for two distinct systems in your house.)
The V373 would indeed give you HDMI and provide the flexibility to connect newer components such as Blu Ray, etc.
Had my system for quite some time,and Ive been left a little behind with all that is going on with new systems. I run 2 amps , a Yamaha rx v440 for theatre, a proton 1100 and 1150 amp and pre amp for music.
A set of B&W speakers to both amps, which are more my music speakers, and a seperate full set of 4 speakers and sub to the theatre amp.
I have a projector and screen plus a plasma tv. I had a dvd player running to both amps, and a cd player to the music amp.
Now , the dvd player and the cd player have both passed away , and the globe has died in the projector all at once.
Now that I have to upgrade the old dvd player to something more modern , do I or should I upgrade the old theatre amp so they are compatible?I was looking at the yamaha RX-V373.
Can I get a blue ray DVD player that will also play cds well , that I can connect to both amps , or should I have 2 players like I had before hand.
Any help and advice appreciated , thanks Cam
