I bought a Yamaha DSP A1 in 1999 should I keep this receiver and connect it to my B&W 605 and 305 speakers when I buy a new HD TV. I have never used the receiver the way it should be used so I am not sure if I should just sell it if I can or keep it and learn how to use it. Not sure if it can be used with the new systems that are out now.

it can decode Dolby digital 5.1 and DTS, so it would make a very nice 5.1 receiver when connected to the source material by Toslink optical or digital coaxial cables. When you absolutely "must" have HDMI digital audio, it will need replacement, but in the mean time, it's a great receiver to organize a 5.1 system around. Enjoy !

:DThis is what I have now. This may not be an appropriate question here however if I don't ask I will always wonder. Because of lack of room to really do justice to these speakers & receiver I was thinking of selling them. I do not have any idea if anyone would buy them and if so what I should ask. If you and PM me with an answer I would appreciate it. Thanks
