I sure would like to see receivers I can actually afford start to offer HDMI switching, that's for sure. :-)

If you have a zone 2 with surround sound, why not just have a separate system hooked up to it with a coaxial digital out from this receiver should you need any sources fed from it? Easier to wire and less signal convertion.

Actually, unless B&K are still making receivers as nice as they were at the turn of the millenium, I can't think of a receiver I'd rather have.

Couple that with the fact hardly any people who bought them could figure out how to use them. Denons and Yamahas are far easier to use.

But then again, I hardly sold any of those compared to the Denon, Yamaha, and Sony ES we sold. Shoot, I hardly ever saw the Krell move out. Mmmm... Krell.

At same point, you have to consider breaking out the audio and video switching and processing into two boxes (with some kind of communication bus between them).

I guess you confirmed it.
I was disappointed with Yamaha sound (too warm) in comparison with Sony ES. I do like Dennon.
