Granted, I would need a 4K TV later but say, this is possible in 5 years time, which 4K capable receiver would be good to get now?
I am leaning toward 4K pass through
From my limited understanding on the terms. Please correct me if I am incorrect.
4K upscale - will upscale the incoming signal to 4K resolution but will not push native 4K signal through..
4K pass through - will essentially move the incoming (native 4k) signal to the 4K TV but no upscaling of non 4K signal being pushed through..
While 4K projectors and displays from major manufacturers currently list for about $25K, it looks like their prices will be plummeting, since (supposedly) already there are 4K displays available in China at prices which are equivalent to less than $7K.
Marantz SR7009 avr + MM9000 amp --> Atmos 7.1.4
Fronts=NHT 2.9+AC2, FH+TM=DefTech PM1000, LCR+TM amped
Yes, I also agree that 4K pass through would be best..
4K is the future so I want to be somewhat prepared..
Thanks once again!
If future 4k displays (TV's) are going to have their own upscaling, then what is the point exactly of having a 4k upscaling receiver? Why would you need that if the TV is going to do it's own upscaling?
I bought the Sony STR-DN840 receiver with pass-through and I think it will be fine in a year or two when I buy my 4k TV right?
(Sony also has a STR-DN1040 with 4k upscaling, but I don't think I need it)
Don't expect a current AVR to have everything you want 5 years from now.
Agree, I wouldn´t buy an AVR receiver based on video features that will be available in 5 years. Better to decide which receiver to get based on AUDIO features, as (in my opinion) audio features remain pretty unchanged over the years, but video features evolve every 6 months or less.
