I've got a Sony V series, hooked up to a Yamaha 1600 via optical. If i use both amp and TV speakers you can just hear a slight sync variation. But not at all noticable with the TV volume off. I guess it's just the time it takes the audio to travel through the cable then be processed by the amp...
Sorry Gutty, I can't accept that the cable and amp is going to take any (detectable) time to process the signal. Unless my Ht speakers are a lot further from my couch (100m+) than my Bravia x speakers, I don't see the Ht gear being a possible cause of the problem/delay.
I can see/hear a slight sync difference between the picture and the sound, when watching Digital broadcasts, but this delay isn't there for DVDs (when I take the audio from the DVD player traight to the PreAmp). I guess I need to experiment further, to see if the audio is delayed, with the audio goes from the DVD to the tele then to the PreAmp.
I'd be very keen to hear any other opinions. I'll report in more detail when I have done further tests.
