Only if you play into it. Buy quality once, and it lasts much longer, not just physically holding up, but the performance remains satisfying much longer. I paid a lot of money for my Kuro in 2009. It is still so damn good, I have no intention of going near 4K anytime soon, if ever. Same thing, I bought a Pioneer VSX-1018 receiver in 2009. It doesnt do 3D, but neither do I. It wont do 4K, neither do I. It still sounds great and serves my purposes extremely well. Same with speakers, etc. I did buy a new BD player last year, but only for it's streaming features, and it was only $100.
Just my $.02:p
