    Default GOS just ordered a new Denon X4000 AVR!

    werthliving.com

    Yeah, I know....it's already discontinued. But it's a beast, and I cannot wait. My current receiver is outdated....AVR-988 at 110 WPC . Just ordered a Denon AVR-X4000 (125 WPC) from Accessories for LESS (yes, it's refurbished...gonna give it a try) Got it for $599 shipped.

    This should be fun.....

    It is a very nice AVR man, and the XT32 version of audyssey is nice. Can also calibrate two subs, main reason I am using XT32.

    Congrats! Even though it's a generation or two old, still makes me jealous

    At this point I'll keep plodding along with my basic circa-2009 5.1 channel Denon receiver until they release their 2015 generation of receivers that should not just have HDMI 2.0 ports but also have HDCP 2.2 (required for any upcoming external 4k sources), and I'd like one that supports an upgrade path to Atmos and DTS:X (which is DTS' version of object based sound due out soon).

    Believe me....I debated and debated about getting this realizing it's already outdated...I'm a pretty spontaneous guy and I liked the price, so I jumped. I'm just not worried much about the 4k yet....a new TV is just not in the near future for me...plus, I had a $300 gift card, so that made it even easier...

    Funny you mention that. My wife has constantly been giving me grief about the sheer size of my current sub. It really is a tank and takes up way too much space in our seating area. So - I'm cautiously considering downsizing and getting 2 smaller subs.

    There are plenty of compact dual 12's that would be nice, or the compact ULS15's from Hsu

    I have been real impressed since adding the second VTF15, with regards to SubEQ on XT32. It makes it EASY.

    Well. I meant another of the same size. Lol
    That would be a shame man. I know you love that sub.

    Your comment got me curious....what does your comment mean, relative to this description regarding the AVR-X4000?

    "The sophisticated video processor includes SD-to-HD upscaling, along with 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) for the next generation of 4K Ultra HDTVs."

    When it all gets sorted out, you will just need a 4K blu-ray player with dual outs if you have an older AVR.

    Until you go all 4K, none of it will matter for you though.

    Well see that's been the tricky part of UltraHD stuff, there hasn't been a totally solidified standard. So while the X4000 can pass a UHD/4K signal it is limited to 30fps max (because it is an HDMI 1.4 port) and cannot handle the latest copy protection (HDCP 2.2) which we now know will be required for Blu-ray 4k and it is already required for Sony's 4k movie server box (which they recently unlocked it to work with any brand TV).

    What's even more annoying is there are a bunch of receivers and 1st/2nd generation 4k TVs out there with HDMI 2.0 ports but without the updated copy protection engine, so they cannot be used for upcoming 4k BD content. So seeing HDMI 2.0 in the specs doesn't immediately mean it will be any more future proof, it needs to declare that it supports HDCP 2.2 as well.

    Sadly nearly all 2014 A/V receivers/processors DO NOT have HDCP 2.2, the only vendor to get it in their product line in time for 2014 was Onkyo. So the 2015 lines of all the rest are expected to catch up.

    That's why gadgtfreek was saying for the new 4k BD standard a whole lot of people will need a player with dual-HDMI outputs, so you can run video directly into your shiny new UHDTV set that has an HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 port and then use the secondary port to send the audio only to your AVR.

    I'm interested to know what the new BD standard's behavior will be if you connect it up to a 1080p TV (thus an older HDMI and HDCP standard), will it allow playback capped at 1080p? If so, I'd start to buy new 4k BDs even though I'm on a 1080p display to have the maximum potential image quality and for the future proofing of my movie library.

    Hopefully they have been smart and not stupid, but I will let them open their mouth and remove all doubt!
