I would also lean towards the Modulator. In TV end terms no other end box - no extra receivers required. The negative is no IR capabilities, which you may or may not require.
But if you do want IR in the future. I would suggest looking for one with IR Return so you can upgrade in future to use remotes in other rooms. Maybe look at the Resilink 1603. https://dpanda.com.au/digital-modulators/548-resi-linx-hd-1603.html. The negative with the IR is to use it you need to add their hub & IR targets, which starts to mount up in price. But at least you have it for future.
Sorry haven't had much to do with HDMI over network. Very interesting!!
I picked up a second hand Rotel RMB 1075 to go with my Rotel RMB 1585. During the test when I bought the 1075 amp the speakera sounded fine but now im home I can hear a slight buzz when nothing is played and amp is on idling. I guess its easy missed if your not an expert like me but it might just be nothing and something to do with connections at my house. Im not too worried as it does work amd could be used as a stop gap if needed or maybe I can get it serviced?
Great speaker, brilliant sound in very good condition, small mark on one side hardly noticeable. Brought from Eastwood Hi Fi a few years ago. We have changed our setup and don't need it any more. Cost over $4000
Inspection is welcome, Hunters Hill Sydney
Here is my Epson 9300 in action. I sold the JVC X7000 so I could have a PJ that could be gamed on as well. 30ms input lag and excellent pixel refresh on the 9300 make it PJ Gaming Gold! But I miss the x7000. To me the X7000 was cinemas quality with the picture - the blacks and colours are excellent even without a calibration.
i finished assembling the 18" sub woofer cabinet yesterday. Wilp drop the driver in and start testing. If all good I will start to think how I will finish the exterior. Damn its big and heavy! 1200mm x 600mm x 600mm with 18mm thick mdf.
