is Lip Synch feature important in AVAR ?


Recommended Posts

am considering the Marantz SR4001, this does not have the Lip Synch feature, which the SR5001 has.

 

anyone can advise if the lip synch feature is a must in a modern HT environment ? is it a die die must have feature ?

 

if so, then must cough up the extra cash for the SR5001 model, else can just go for the SR4001.

its not a die-die must have - or the 4001 would have it, else no one would buy - im just following the logic here (assuming that feature decisions made by AVR manufacturers follow any kind of logic). A lot of receivers do not have lipsynch

 

however if you currently experience lip desynch with any of your sources then it might be a good idea to have it

yes, I understand the logic. My actual intent was to find out how many people there that has sources that absolutely requires lip sync feature and what these sources are, so that I can judge if I would belong to that group of people.

Everyone is subject to lipsync issue because the problem is linked to how much processing is done on the video, in the decode, in the display and in between.

 

The problem is that for each program the function must be easy enough to access as the delay is likely to change for each program source.

Really? I've never experienced this issue before, either with my old Kenwood or present Pioneer. Remember there used to be the odd tv show when I have experienced it but that was so long ago...Is it important in AVR? Not to me I dont think.

Never had any problems with lip sync on any source for me. My current AVR doesn't have lip sync feature and last time when I had AVRs with the feature - also never needed to use it - so IMO, not a die-die must have feature (for me).
