I am very interested in this product. Sounds like a different approach B&K is taking if what I have read is true. Which is about how it is going to handle analog audio signals and digital inputs. I am anxious to learn more about this product.
I was thinking that 6 HDMI inputs is a lot, but the way things are going it might not be enough.
Keep us posted. I am sure there will be more info coming during CES.
