What they might sell today doesn't take away the fact that the AVP-A1HDCI has been one of the best A/V purchases I've ever made. As things stand right now, my next pre-pro won't be a Denon primarily because Denon doesn't currently sell one.
But what false hopes are you talking about? It obviously doesn't do 4K, but they never said that it would...
I also think it is a great product and hope my unit last forever.
I am not sure what high end AVP I would replace it with.
Even today I see no high separate that matches up to this unit.
I love the 3 subs connections.
However, for $6k it should be great. My complaint with Denon is after a short period of ownership they discontinued support of the product.
No more upgrades, or updates. My unit still sits with a Rhapsody app turned Napster that is useless.
I used to play Rhapsody all the time through the unit, now no music.
Denon did nothing to enhance the connectivity for the device.
And I had exactly the same experience with their high end $2000 Blu-ray player.
Ending up selling it after two years for $200 hardly used. The unit would not play many of the discs formats, and Blu-ray was slow and unstable.
Looking the current lineup of Denon products I will never buy another Denon.
In my opinion Denon support is terrible.
High end customers are investing in companies by buying expensive products.
Denon does not treat it's high end customers has valuable investors.
