I haven't posted in this thread for a few years at least.
I'm a happy owner of 2 * POA Amps + 1 AVP (not 3d upgraded) pre.
Finally after many years of inactivity (read = happy, not buying any new stuff), we're building a new home and looking for the latest & greatest.
I'm wiring the hometheater room with 4 * Atmos ceiling speakers + 9.1 'usual' floor standing speakers, for a 9.1.4 speaker setup. I'm also getting a Sony 4K projector etc.
The only missing piece is finding the equivalent of the AVP pre/pro, that is Atmos ready.
No luck finding one, despite a lot of AVS reading + google!
The new Marantz AV8802 (not yet released) seemed to be it, but the AVS thread suggests it can only support 11 active speakers (and not my intended 13 speaker setup - or maybe more, after all, the 2 * POA amps are already there anyway).
Any chance someone here is aware of rumors of a soon to be released pre/pro that could match the mythical Denon AVP?
By soon, I'm talking May / June of next year timeframe.
