Matchmaker Madness

Q. I have been using the surround processor in my receiver, fed to a multichannel amplifier, and am considering doing so again. Can you clear the air regarding voltage output from a receiver or preamplifier, amplifier input sensitivity, and amplifier input impedance.

Q. The sound quality of high-end televisions has generally improved. Is it possible to route the center-channel output from my receiver to my TV and use its speakers for the center channel, rather than having a separate speaker on the wall? Jay Pringle Show Low, AZ

Q. I read that the newer HDMI version 1.3 effectively solves the lip-sync issue that can sometimes pop up in HDTV broadcasts because of the digital audio being quicker than the video. I am considering a receiver upgrade. Would you recommend looking for a receiver with HDMI 1.3? Shawn Crandall Via e-mail
