Item: AVR Price Range: $100 Item Condition: Used Extra Info:
Hi guys, the title would make most people laugh I know but that's my budget. I would like to buy an AVR for $100 if possible. I just bought a set of sorrounding speakers from eBay and need an AVR to connect with them. I intend to use them with my tv. The only nice-to-have I would like to add is usb playback option.
hopefully someone has one lying around that they won't mind getting rid for $100.
I'm a bit slow off the mark posting this, but not everyone interested in a 3D TV may be aware that Panasonic released the EX780 range of 3D LCD TVs in Australia in April ( https://blogs.panasonic.com.au/consumer/2017/05/29/introducing-new-premium-panasonic-4k-ultra-hd-tvs/ and http://www.trustedreviews.com/news/panasonic-tvs-2017-4k-hdr-2952995 ).
The models in this range use active glasses 3D. That is not my favourite technology (as I dislike the flickering/alternation) but it may be necessary to control the crosstalk of an HDR screen.
I see the 75" model is currently listed by major retailers in Australia at a bit under $5k. I've been struggling to find a detailed review in English. However what I have seen in various forums and in brief formal reviews indicates that the crosstalk issue has not been fully solved.
A detailed review in French (at http://www.audiovideohd.fr/tests/489-Panasonic-EX780-TX-58EX780E--1.html ) of the European 58" model states [as translated into English]:-
At a time when TV manufacturers collectively are turning their backs on 3D, the Panasonic EX780 is an exception to the rule, and is one of the latest 3D (active) TVs available on the market along with Sony's ZD9, a move appreciated by fans of 3D Blu-ray who wish to enjoy their collection of movies on their TV. Although the overall picture quality is satisfactory, with a bright 3D and beautiful colour, a slight crosstalk and a bit of judder still exist.
No. A single ( low rez.not 18.2 Gbps capable) 10m cable feeding from my Marantz into HDMI 2. Works fine for 4k/24fps/ 4:2:2 as that only hits 8.9Gbps. Won't show the Oppo's Home screen menu in Auto because for some insane reason they chose to set that at a default 4:4:4 / 60fps.
Wouldn't want to have to thread 2 cables through my ceiling cavity. Lol.
