I believe the newer SP3s are 4K but I doubt DSD will happen as the DACs are not capable to my knowledge. Also don't know if any plans to allow 4K upgrades are in the works but one would think that is...

?? Saying you might prefer a different amp synergy is one thing but saying the A21 is not a good match is a bit surprising.
Edit: Lucky the "all amps sound the same [within their constraints]"...

The Marantz 7702 would be a good option instead of the P7, you could also drop back to the Oppo 103[D] since you can send digital to the prepro. 8802 would be even better choice.

A great option might be an Oppo 105[D], P7 preamp, and then a combo of Halo amps depending on whether 5 or 7 and type of speakers.

If I remember correctly, the 4K/4K upgrade was going to include an upgraded mic. Did it?

The A21 is a slightly better amp than the A31 or A51 so for 7.1 I'd recommend an A21 for L&R and an A51 for center and the four surrounds. That is assuming that you need more than an A23 for the...

I would concur, 5 LS50s (or 2 to start) with a tight musical sub would be amazing for that size space.
Edit: I think WSE would concur, his main system is 3 800D2 and 4 802D2 and his second system...

Maybe I dreamt it but I thought because U.S. upgrade was free it did not include the front HDMI but in Europe where it is a paid upgrade the front is included.

I would be more inclined to go with the the 684s and a good sub. However I have not heard the new S2 series so someone with direct experience can concur or object. I would consider the small towers...

I would concur with Mr. Softdome. The only AVR possibly would be the previous Arcam 600.
Edit: of course you could use an AVR, just not do it justice.

Just curious, the failures I know about were connected to Parasound Halo Amps. That said I have an A31 and no issues with my trigger from my 80.3.

The R series are quite good but based on feedback I think the R500 is the sweet spot followed by the R700. Either R or Reference would be great for music or movies but my preference is Reference. ...

RichB does that with his Revel Salons (gen 1) after testing bridged vs not bridged on one speaker. Notable improvement in his testing.
Edit: Wrong, biamping not bridging as noted below.

That was an issue with the 8801 (only one to my knowledge) if I'm not mistaken so that is certainly disappointing.
