Yamaha RX-V2700, 7.1 Surround Receiver

November 8, 2006

Yamaha RX-V2700I’ve made no reservations about my enthusiasm for the various HQV video-processing chipsets from Silicon Optix, however another company with a strong background in broadcast video is also making waves with their consumer chipsets as well.

Anchor Bay Technologies has provided video processing circuitry for some of the most respected names in high performance audio and video, most notably: Esoteric, Arcam, Marantz, DVDO, Denon and now Yamaha. (Anchor Bay reportedly also provided video processing and de-interlacing circuitry for Toshiba’s RD-A1 HD DVD recorder)

The Yamaha RX-V2700 7.1 surround receiver features 140 watts x 7-channels, 3 HDMI inputs, 96/24 Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES decoding and Anchor Bay Technologies ABT1010 internal scaling chipset. Not a bad looking receiver on paper, I’d love to get some face time with a Anchor Bay equipped receiver, source or display, as I’ve heard very positive reviews of their de-interlacing and video processing capabilities.
