Hmm Denon
It's the hdmi 2.1 that is the cherry on this one.

Denon is a great brand, but they tend to be a bit behind in features and software updates. I bought a Denon in 2017 and returned it for a Pioneer because it just refused to do things like ATMOS or DTS-X even after the software upgrades. Of course in 2020 that's fixed now, but Pioneer were well ahead of Denon and considerably cheaper.


Yes get Onkyo

They look amazing spec but not sure it's a 'hot deal' at RRP
Might help people that are looking for a AV receiver currently to hold off for a bit and wait for better more future proof tech.
Hmm Denon
I got the 2600 over 6 months ago for less than £400, not sure how the spec compares but AVR tech can move slowwww so if you can get a 2600 for a lot cheaper go for that... it’s an epic amp for the cash.

These are the first announced hdmi 2.1 compliant receivers, which is needed for the new games consoles at Christmas if you want all the bells and whistles. This year is a big year for tech advancement.

This isn’t a deal though as it rrp and the other manufacturers will announce theirs soon.

why? Just use eArc if you want HD formats.

No, it’s to play at 4K, 120fps and a variable refresh rate.

The new consoles will offer this. It’s the same with pc gamers using an oled as a pc monitor.

Might be an idea to go read it’s features. The 8k stuff is supported but not the main focus right now.
Superb avr, have the 3600 and it’s very good and feature rich. At odds with a few others Icant recommend Onkyo though after spending big money on one of there amps years ago and getting rubbish customer service.

It’s not the formats for sound, it’s the VRR and 4K @ 120fps that requires more bandwidth than hdmi 2.0
RRP and not available until Sep, there could well be a better deal in the next four months.

I definitely see the benefits of a receiver with hdmi 2.1, it'll future proof you for a good few years. Yes, you could save money on a non 2.1 receiver but you'd be looking to upgrade a lot sooner so wouldn't be making any saving in the long run.
Only issue with the new x range is they only have 1 input of HDMI 2.1. Other than that, superb units

Oh man...

That is what’s new this year in TVs as well... all equipment in the chain needs to be hdmi 2.1

It obviously doesn’t stop you from playing a ps5, it just wont be as good.

Which is fair enough.. it’s well worth a read. Hdmi 2.1 is the next leap in technology and is starting to be built into tech now.

Sadly as this is first gen, only 1 port is hdmi 2.1, so that’s why I’ll wait until next years are announced or a dif manufacturer

I think what will be produced and become available in respect of 2.1 will be far from straightforward and not always discernible or a gamechanger, as this detailed test shows (not completely straight forward information to absorb I will admit):

Well then yes, but most people plug everything into their amp and have just one cable to the tv as you soon run out of ports on your tv.

again, which is mainly for 8K.

Or 4K at 120Hz which 99.9999% of people don't have.... and those that think their LG 9 series do, at 4K, are sorely mistaken.

That’s how this tech evolvement has always worked.

It’s all very complicated. Especially as 12 bit TVs are a long way off and for 8K you need to spend a considerable sum given the consensus seems to be consumers need to have a 70 inch+ screen to see the difference b/w 4K and 8K. Not forgetting film/tv content is years away as 95% of the country is still watching HD or SD even those with 4K TVs that subscribe to Netflix UHD.

Out of interest, I know it’s about ports and games mainly but why does my 2018 FZ Pana state 120hz (see about half way down the page under “vertical frequency”)?

Which HDMI 2.1 devices have you got that will output 4K@120.....none, didn't think so. All the experts must be wrong and you right and the classic 'i do that for a living', are you for real

You can plug the ps5 direct to the tv and just use the ARC just for the audio. Simples. I’d personally rather spend the cash saved on bigger speakers/sub 😁.

Also, serious gamers who care about high frame rates will likely be using headphones on an even higher refresh rate gaming screen.

2080Ti, HDMI 2.1 Heard it all now and this now invalidates everything you say you know.
It's still early days for hdmi 2.1, 8k, 120hz 4k, VRR. But these will become more common over the next few years as new consoles and TV's come out.

My current receiver is 11 years old. Looking to replace now and expect new one to last another 10 years so its good to have a bit of future proofing. Having said that I might just pick up a cheap x3600h. Can always plug console etc directly to TV and use eARC.

Yeah I'm sure new consoles with their 5700xt level gpus will play 4k@120. People need to get their heads out their arses with these numbers. A 2080ti cant do that so a ps5 or xbox series whateverthecrap sure isn't doing it.

Like ps4pro or xbox one are actually 4k/60 my backside. Yet people still spout the nonsense.
People are getting a little carried away, AC Valhalla will run at 30fps when it launches on the Series X. 4K @ 60fps will be the maximum developers will be aiming for. You won't see 8K gaming within the next 6 years, imagine the size of the games.

Just because the 2080Ti GPU you have is not HDMI 2.1 as you thought it was is probably the reason.

You should really check the specs

This year there is as big a leap as there has ever been with hdmi 2.1 and 4k/120 and 8k/60 support

Nothing from last years range would support that I dont think

All in time for the Xbox X and Ps5
So glad they've finally released a 2.1 receiver...but now they have I'm a little uhderwhelmed. I'm no expert but this seems very much like they're just dipping their toe in the proverbial water.

I think I'll just get something cheaper for my living room like a marantz 1510 (don't need height, also want to use for music) until the market for 2.1 beds in. So post any marantz deals here please!!
