Maroon is urban slang to describe someone so dim-witted they could not actually spell moron correctly, so it is used with reasonable accuracy here.

When someone claims an industry standard technology, in development for years, and now common on almost any high end, mid range, and even a good percentage of entry level products, has been tested as reliable up to a one foot cable distance, doesn't even the faint smell of cow dung waft up?

Rather, perhaps that someone is trying obfuscate the fact that the manufacturer screwed up by omitting essential technology, that absent, renders the product at the bottom end of a technology bell curve when, from a cost perspective, it should be built to deliver core functionality for several years?

Basic 4k blu ray will get by with 10.2, but 60 frame, deeper color depth, HDR, and other forthcoming features will need 18

I checked with my dealer a couple of days ago, and he was told by McIntosh that the first 50 MX160's would be shipping in August. No, he didn't specify which year.

More seriously, he said mine would be one of that first 50, and he hopes to get it by the last week of this month. Fingers crossed.
