The TV will be on the opposite wall from what the picture shows. And my seat will be away from the wall you see in the picture by about 3'. That would make my seat about 10' from the TV screen.

My setup is all about the TV and sound for it, and for that it is superb. The music in movies sounds wonderful if that's any help.

The volume overlay just shows volume. But there is an 'info' overlay that shows source audio format, output audio format and video format.

The GUI is a bit dated but works very well. And the volume overlay works just fine with 4K. But the full GUI only runs at 720p and doesn't overlay at all. I don't find that to be an issue worth...

Since your source is the TV then with the current AVR, that is the only way that will work. HK didn't do ARC support until the avr-x700 series.

What is irritating is that when I asked HK...

No, audio return doesn't work.

There's two ways of doing what you want:

1. Connect the HDMI out on your source device to and HDMI port on the TV. That gets you the 4K video. Then you can...

I'd have to agree. The 2700/3700 just don't cut the mustard! IMO, the last really good models are the 2600/3600 but they only have 4 HDMI inputs.

I replaced my 3700 with an Onkyo NR757 and...

Yes. Before I got my Onkyo NR757, I connected my 4K source boxes (Hopper 3, FireTV) directly to the TV and use optical audio. The downside is that it is limited to DD since that is all ARC or...

Well HK made the decision to keep the 757 easier. My 3700 shot craps and they had planned on replacing it. But they don't have any and don't know when more will show up so they refunded my money.

Not unless they suddenly decide to re-enter the consumer AVR market.

There were some up a couple weeks ago, but they seem to go pretty quickly.
