Great for audio, remote is terrible, HDMI synch may not be its fault

  • Summary: The good : sound quality is excellent. The Audyssey system made a very large difference in the surround sound experience and even in two-channel soundstage reproduction and was quite easy to set up. The network application does actually work although the interface is clunky. The not so good : The remote, as many other reviewers notes, is really god-awful. I really can't figure out what it even intends to do most of the time.

  • Summary: Audiophile grade Pre-Pro for $2200. I could not pass it up. The remote sucks but once I got use to the dis-functionality of the remote my opinion changed. When I first got it, I was pissed that Audyssey could not be used during DTS HD and DD HD. Well you can if you pump LPCM from your DVD player to the AV 8003 than Audyssey can be applied. Room correction is important but the AV 8003's Audyssey is something to be desired unless you like bright intrusive highs.

Audio First!

  • Summary: Although presented as an audio/video controller, the AV8003 shines brightest on the audio side. The newest uncompressed codecs from DTS and Dolby are simply phenomenal when played through this unit. I'm using a Marantz DV9600 and an Oppo Digital BD-83 for my front end and they both sound awesome. I'm using an Anthem A5 connected to the AV8003 using balanced cables for amplification. Speakers are Paradigm Reference Studio 100 v2 L/R. Paradigm Servo 15 subwoofer.

AV8003 equal to many highend preamps + great for home theater

Robert, Amazon

  • Summary: I am truly amazed how my system improved when I added the AV8003. I needed an AV to support all the new formats for blu ray but also wanted one that was a very good preamp. Basically the AV8003 totally destroyed the original Theta Casablanca AV processor I was using. The 8003 is extremely quiet, netral and about to bring out all the music for a highend 2 channel system along with providing a very big sounstage in width and depth which isn't easy with a highend 2 channel...

  • Summary: Fantastiskt av-försteg, lika bra som ett dedikerat stereoförsteg (i samma prisklass)! Jag kör alltid film och musik i puredirekt läge, då lyfter allt till fantastiska höjder!

  • Summary: Tycker efter snart 2 års användning att detta steg ger mest för pengarna! Kollade efter en uppgradering då jag ville ha HDMI 1.4 men la ner det projektet ganska snabbt! Vill nog inte skiljas från detta brutala försteg!
