Thanks for the links, I will keep researching and looking for answers / advice - the truth is out there! Sure would be good to hear from existing owners about these units, thoughts on pricing, set-up, sound quality, etc. or perhaps they are all so delighted they have no need to frequent forums any longer?

Thanks, John

Couple of pics to keep the thread alive and maybe help someone doing a search in the future. I have found this an easy unit to set-up and use; being able to re-assign the inputs, wow, never knew about stuff like that, just a beginner as you can see!

Hey dont actually have one of these myself but as an installer I fitted one for a customer on friday.

Was a very nice amp, easy to set up, and with 3 powered zones very good value for money! Zone 2 + 3 easy o control with the seperate remote (has small sliding switch to swap from 2-3).

Haven't yet had it hooked up with the HT as the speakers hadnt arrived yet but had 4x 8" incielings in zone 2 and a pair of outdoors in zone 3.

If you have any specific questions on it let me know as i'm putting another one in on Tuesday

Hi,

Can someone please tell me if the 1800/3800 does pass audio/video through the HDMI when the reciever is OFF?

Thanks.

Does your Tv display a picture when you turn it off ? If it does then I say yes otherwise no.

liang,

Are you trying to be a smart-arse or just trying to waste other people time?

If you know the answer then post a usefull reply otherwise do the forum a favour by just shut the F@ up!

You don't really know what "pass-through" mean, do ya?

You are wasting other people's time by asking a stupid question. When you turn off an electrical appliance such

a receiver do you exect it to continue to pass audio or video signal? When was the last time you heard music

from your stereo system when you actually switch off your amplifier ?

liang,

There are no such thing as stupid questions, just stupid people and you've just shown me that you are one of them.

Do you think that your amplifier is REALLY OFF when you turn it off? YES? Now, try this (at your own risk):

- Turn off your receiver/amplifier using the remote control,

- Remove the cover panel/s,

- With your bare fingers, randomly touch some components inside - especially those big round cylinder shaped components,

- Then come back and tell us if your receiver/amplifier is really OFF! :rolleyes:

You are more than welcomed to try what you suggested above on your own equipments and I suggest you go ahead and try

it so others can learn from your experience. There is no such a thing as stupid questions but there are questions asked

by stupid people who ask questions without thinking about their question with a bit of common sense and your question

is just like that. :lol:

Huh? What was that in English please? Calm down kid!

Actually, I think you are NOT capable to answer my question so just forget it and move along.

You're losing it and your posts are getting more and more silly.

Mate - you're over the top here and I suggest YOU calm down. His first answer may have had a touch of the smart alec about it - but it certainly didn't justify the rude response you gave. You should have just had a chuckle and ignored it, hoping someone else might answer the question.

You don't have a brain to interpret answers and even worse you don't even think before asking

a question. I have answered your question already and as for my capability of knowing the latest

technology around the HT all I can say is I have new AVR, a new 6 channel power amp,

I also have both Bluray and HD-DVD, a video proessor, HDTV, speakers, LCD TV and 1080p

projector. As for been silly you are asking a question that is silly I will ask you this question again

do you expect a electronic device like receiver to pass signal (both audio and video) when it is

switched off ?

WOW!!! a "video proessor" (WTF?) ??? All that hi-tech gear??? I guess you do turn them ALL on at the same time, don't you? :D

Really kid, you didn't have to tell us that your parents are running a second-hand electronic shop! They should have spent some of that money on your education instead! Knowledge lasts a lifetime - Electronic equipment doesn't!

I am tertiary educated so don't worry about me not getting enough educations, start worry about yourself first. Knolwedgeable person would not have asked the type of question you asked. And as to what components I turn on and off and how I finance my purchase and what my parents do is none of your business.

It would seem you don't really want any help if all you're doing is patronising or insulting everyone who responds to your posts. :angry2:

I made a typo and there is no shame in admitting it but it still does not match the level of stupidity your question displayed.

If this is the type of "help", then "No, thank you!".

All sensible, helpfull, informative replies are always welcome and appreciated - All others are NOT. So why don't you adhere to your own advice - just chuckle and move along please! Unless you want to stick around to read the "self-humiliating" posts from that "tertiary educated" bang kid (or whatever his name is).

Looks like I've come to a wrong forum to ask questions. This is more of a place for people like bang to come and brag about his "imaginary" gears and his "vapour" knowledge.

Isn't the net a wonderful place??? :lol:

Hey idiot, which part of my post is not clear to you! This is what I said in my other post, read it (assume that you can read)

"All sensible, helpfull, informative replies are always welcome and appreciated - All others are NOT."

You people are unbelievable! - No I am not talking about "your system" - I'm talking about your level of INTELLIGENCE. It's so frick' LOW!

The answer to my original question was just simply a "Yes!" or "No!"

BTW, some really helpful soul has already answered my question without a "smart arse" attitude or even bragging about what he has. He is the kind of posters this forum really need NOT smart arse like you and that jang kid! What makes you think that you guys deserve some respect from other people when you have no respect for them. This is my respect for you, don't like it? Maybe you should be NICE to other posters next time!
