Joel,Is the audio processing of the 818 superior to the 885. I have a good amp so the only difference will be pre part of the 818.
Thanks. I think that makes the decision for me. I am worried about reliability issues but then the 885 will be there as a back up.Joel,
The 885 is several generations behind the 818 so I do think the audio processing is indeed superior. In addition, the 818 offering Audyssey XT32 as opposed to MultEQ XT is a major upgrade. Another advantage to the 818 is the video processing tandem of HQV Vida and Marvell Qdeo,
