Read the thread about Cary Audio's Cinema 11 here:
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=809659&page=70

We decided that it is not worth getting into HDMI HD audio decoding. The resulting sound quality will not be good enough for serious audiophiles.  There are too many decent AVP for $1500 or less.

That does not sound right to me. If you look at something like what the high end pioneers have done jitter is virtually eliminated between the blu-ray player and the receiver and the quality is controlled more by the quality of the DAC than anything else and they use high end DAC's as well, it is the analog stage that colours everything not a jitter free digital solution. Nuforce should be looking at this as the solution and directly connecting into their amp from the processor so that more of the analog stages are removed not the other way around.

Just my 2c worth

I agree - why else would we then replace the AVP-17 if the AVP-32 does not have HDMI audio decoding. I think that it doesn't make sense to make a 3-rd generation product that basically is the same unit as the 1st generation with minor tweaks.

Personally, I don't think that you should rush the product to market but rather wait and get it right - my guess is that most owners of the AVP-17 (or even 16) would not purchase a new processor that does not have HD audio decoding.

AVP-32 will have HD audio decoding. We haven't had the chance to evaluate the prototype so no further information here.

PLEASE, PLEASE bring back the AVP32.  I want an all Nuforce HT with the Oppo blu-ray player.

Please do not ask OPPO about this. I mentioned in this forum by mistake  :oops:
We will make the announcement at the appropriate time.  Please, stop asking about it  :duh:

Hi There, checking in on status!

I continue to agree with you that having a really good 7.1 analogue pre/pro is the best way for music.  I've listened to a decent 7.1 analogue set up and compared it to a high end AVP with HDMI and internal decoding of HD etc.  For music, the analogue set up was superior- which is amazing because the AVP set up had one technology that really works well for movies:  auto set up/multi-EQ.  The analogue set up  sounded more natural and convincing for music, while the set up with Multi-EQ was more convincing for movies.  Perhaps the room correction function could be integrated into a player like the Oppo some day.

Ciao for now, hope things are still developing...

Any updates??  I'm really impressed with the capabilities of the AVP-17 and am hoping the 32 is still a go!
Thanks

It is still being debugged. No way it is going to come out this year.

Still stuck in development.

We are looking into another project that is easier to manage:
take HDMI PCM stream from source devices, split, re-clock and convert to 7.1 analog outputs.

Hi Jason...
My Lexicon MV-5 processor are using there Logic 7 for decoding PCM stream from source and that sounds great.

Jason...... honestly, then I can just buy the Oppo Blue ray player...... can you tell us definitely if there will be a product so that we can realistically manage our expectation or focus our attention to other brands for a pre/pro.

thanks.

I don't think you want to wait that long for our AVP or whatever. It is unlikely to come out before mid 2010.

Regarding the OPPO BDP-83, wait one more week for some good news.

hmmmm...... hear no evil... speak no evil...  Mid 2010 is OK.... but it better be good, cheaper and more reliable than the Cary Cinema 11a..... plus XLRs (like the AVP 17)....

Hi,
The new Oppo SE version will have a completely different DAC.   Unless other modification are going to replace the DAC, they are not likely to achieve the performance of the Oppo SE due to the new DAC from ESS (the Sabre DAC), 2 of them will be used in the SE, 1 for dedicated 2-channel, and the other 8-channel for movies.

Nuforce Edition rides on the better SE platform to offer significant and all-out performance enhancement by installing better parts and optimized important circuit that Oppo deemed "too extreme".
