Question about 3D: I'm not planning to purchase a 3D display (really not that interested in 3D at this time), but I do like that these receivers have the capability if some day I want to go there. So my question has to do with the different types of 3D sets coming out (glasses required, no glasses required, etc); Are there different 3D formats? Will all 3D capable receivers be able to drive the different types of displays coming out? Is there any difference in terms of the content (i.e., Avatar, etc)?
Just want to see if the Anthem's are somewhat "future proof" in the 3D area - not that anything truly is...
Heks, I doubt that anybody can answer your question as these receivers have not been released, and the data sheets claim a future 3D firmware update to be forthcoming. Please do not hold your breath waiting.
I do not understand this 3D clamor at all (& I have no interest in it), but if you are interested in it, simply purchase the Panasonic DMP-BD350 Blu-Ray player with dual HDMI outputs to go with your 3D display of choice. Make your decision to purchase the new Anthem Receiver, or any other receiver, based upon the presently existing SG & PQ.
