I am trying to organise an AV setup for my parent's new home and since my experience is mainly headfi I am a bit lost.
I originally was going to get a Marantz or Yamaha Receiver and use their respective apps to control this very simple AV setup which consists of a TV with 2 floor standers and a rack with 4 components (bluray etc).
I spoke to an AV installer and he was quick to tell me how these apps are "junk" and that they don't work very well, so he suggested getting a setup that uses their software.
So the question is, is he telling me the truth or am I about to saddle my parent's with a piece of dubious software that is going to cost a couple of hundred to fix every time it breaks down or a component is changed?
Thanks for your help.
