Denon's DVP-602CI is playing to a small marketplace, but they're playing. This 6-in, 2-out HDMI unit may look like a simple switcher, but it can scale as well, up to 1080p. Why I'm showing you the business end of this unit instead of the face plate, is so you can see the two component (one RCA style, one BNC) inputs and the s-video and composite inputs that make this Denon capable of feeding everything to your video display via a single cable. Like I said, it's a niche player, but if you're in the market and have $2,499 to spare, look no further.

This new Sherwood AV receiver has all of the requisite features, plus a new type of audio processor. Trinnov processing not only performs the usual equalization options, but is said to be able to electronically shift the source of sound from the actual physical location of the speaker to elsewhere in the room.

The SR-6003 and SR-5003 AVRs from Marantz have the latest in in-processor decoding. In addition, the 6003 is slightly more powerful (100 wpc x 7 verses 90 wpc x 7), has more HDMI capability (3-in 2-out verses 3-in 1-out), but they both get Audyssey Multi-EQ and Sirius and XMradio-readiness. Best of all, the top model is only $1,199 and the other only $799. You go Marantz! (feature placards to follow).
