@Cav , so new models will be out this Fall? As I said above, I just got an email about new Denon series "S" and they start at under $500 with Atmos. I'd be interested in having that as an option. Now that I've got the speakers I want, I feel like I should upgrade my receiver to get the best room correction available. Any idea what the price point will be at or around? Maybe 900+?

Looks like they are coming out now like you said, some are updated versions of the previous ones adding Atmos. So, the AVR-X7200 is not the AVR-X7200WA.

AVR-X7200WA = $2999
AVR-X2200W = $799
AVR-X1200W = $599
AVR-S910W = $599
AVR-S510BT = $299

These are MSRP of course and can be had for street value that is cheaper. You can contact the AVS store as they are a qualified D&M dealer (Denon/Marantz) and will give a better price. I usually like having a minimum of the 4xxxx series and above to get most of the bells and whistles. It doesn't look like they have the 3xxx, 4xxx and the 5xxxx series yet. The X7200WA is their flagship at the moment. The other I suspect will be out soon.

I actually want a pair of the Sib's for my son's computer now, they look excellent for that and the price is great.
This Sib (5 of them) plus Cub3 sub ($499 retail, $249 on sale) for only $499 is actually a better deal than the Sib in pairs! I think I'm gonna order the package and use 6 Sibs (2 for rears, and 4 for Atmos), save 1 sib and cub3 for later. I would return one of the sib pairs I just ordered and sell my current Energy RC10 rears.

Living Room (5.2): NHT Classic 3s/3c/2s/12 sub, Earthquake Supernova 15" sub, Marantz SR7008, NAD T955 amp, Panasonic 65VT50

Man Cave (5.1): Focal Solo6 Be (3 for LCR), Energy RC10 rears, NHT U1 sub, Emotiva UMC1 prepro and UPA500 amp, Pioneer Elite 5070, Elite 62FD

I haven't. The reason being is HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 the later being less important. I use an HTPC exclusively for media and BD playback. The display is essentially a monitor. My next set will undoubtedly be 4k and I'll need increased HDMI bandwidth for 60fps gaming and 48p movies.

Did you just buy a Sharp TV? I was looking through the thread and it looked like you had some problems.

Oh yeah the Sharp TV I bought last March (2014) is the SQ quasi 4k and it's an absolute piece of crap. I'm working with some forum members in the HCFR thread trying to get it properly calibrated. Things aren't looking too good.... dE for practically every color is too high and things either look over-saturated (too orange) or blacks clip. I wish I would have bought a Vizio M series or Samsung (not purchasing the F8500 is a regret).

The next set will likely be one that members say calibrates well and has an established reputation at doing so. I'm not going after over stated gimmicks too like how the SQ was advertised as effectively producing a 4k resolution.

Wow, that sucks. I was looking into those newer Sharp 80" models. Should I be worried?

It's still weird to me that Vizio is being recommended, still seems like a "cheap" brand. Is it all Vizio M series , even the 80"? I know it's edge lit compared to the other sizes.

Looking to pick a new set up in a month or so... Still have my eve on the Sony KDL75850C, price looks good and rtings review doesn't look bad either.

I wouldn't be worried just see what the experts say.

Vizio is continually getting good reviews for PQ. They have had other issues but the PQ seems to be consistent.

Check out the results to the value electronics shootout on the homepage. The 78 inch Samsung looks good.

What Samsung model are you talking about? I found one 78" but it came out a couple years ago I believe.
