There is only one problem, I won't be coming back, not for the foreseeable future.
The move is temporarily permanent and permanently temporary.
At least amplifier technology doesn't change rapidly.
I'll make sure the projector and processor is bought at the end. (Ideally... I want a 2nd Generation UHD product, no 1st Gen beta rushed products if I can avoid them.)
I'm slowly bringing my system up to 4K/Atmos capability, without reducing SQ of 2-ch music, since I'm 90% music.
I'm thinking of replacing the 105/XSP-1 with a 7703 and UHD player, in combo with a Motu/DCX dsp stack.
The 7703 brings Atmos and 4K 60hz.
The UHD player replaces the 105's player role. (Not sure which, maybe the 8500 or Oppo 203D...)
The Motu becomes my USB DAC, replacing the 105's role. It also brings 24x48 channels of audio (in addition to the 9x18 DCX's I already have for bass-management, which I might get rid of...)
I was thinking of getting a XPA-6 Gen3 to reduce tweeter hiss and fan noise. Still sitting on the fence about this.
For the Atmos heights I'm not sure what I would build. I was thinking just some low-profile full-range drivers, I don't have a 10ft ceiling so...
