besides getting the Sabre DAC's, don't forget -
4K scaling/pass-thru vs. 4K pass-thru
*maybe* more robust zone use but we won't know until manual posted
1 more HDMI input
- refinements/enhancements on this platform design
with MDA on the horizon but not ready for this year, probably look at next 1 & 2 years for major platform changes since companies will have to have new DSP's, etc to accommodate it - that's a guess on my part. and with new DSP's, Pioneer *could* be in a position for adding new shiny things
we'll have to wait & see...
all companies will be in same boat to accommodate new dts (can we also hope for Dolby Atmos?
) 3D positional audio processing. recently, though, I read that current Blu-ray spec may not support MDA so not sure what content will be available to take advantage of it. sure hope there is some
I'm far more interested in MDA than 3D video which I do not find compelling at all. [4K + OLED] I can get excited about but not until it get's into my price range
wait for manuals & spec sheets - should be July-ish if Pioneer stays true to past time framesEdited by ss9001 - 6/16/13 at 10:28am
