Since this thread was recently brought back to life, is there any reason at this point to upgrade from this receiver to anything new? I'm running a 5.1 Klipsch Quintet SL setup and will likely upgrade to a set of KEF's or Klipsch RP series. I don't have a 4K TV, and don't plan on getting one in the near future.

The only things I've missed from this receiver was the lack of integrated bluetooth, or the ability to select audio and video inputs separately (ie: listening to music over bluetooth while watching the TV video input...something the new Denon's can do).

Thumbs up

I too, much like you, have 'no' intention to ever want to upgrade to a 4k. Couple family members have 4k(s) and I don't care for the image. Probably due to what I'm use too. Much like watching something in 3D. Don't like it, never will and find it too distracting. Therefore, my 7.2 system, with this receiver (667), is more than satisfying.

I found the cheapest answer to my question was a hdmi splitter and hopefully I will be rocking this avr for years to come.

May not be the case with yer splitter, but couple years ago I tried using one of these port savers: http://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=11891 ..and found something interesting. Out of the three different styles, none would pass 1080p. Everything was 720. For some odd reason, even some of the audio surround was restricted. Talked to people at Monoprice, Bluejeans and a few locals. Nobody could explain or knew why. Wierd.
