Ambeo Soundbar HDMI

Yes, the inputs (3) are all HDMI 2.0a. The only point is that the single HDMI output need only be 2.0b to support eARC.
The Sennheiser reply is that the single HDMI output is 2.1. If they implemented 2.1 for the single output, why not implement 2.1 entirely and have a future proof product with that spec? As long as their claims of eARC support are accurate, I guess it does not matter if 2.1 or 2.0b was implemented for the output side. It will work. Cannot wait to grab one!

But if you are right, then why in their own website they write eARC as an HDMI 2.0a ?

The following comment from Sennheiser Technical Support is what I was given. "The HDMI out (to the TV) is HDMI 2.1. That's why we have the eARC functionality." This spec is not mentioned anywhere on their website about the soundbar which is why there is the confusion. Since I plan to connect all of my sources via HDMI direct to the soundbar, the eARC function does not even come into play for me. All I want going to the TV is HDMI video (X3) passing all of the 4k processing and the HDR data. For those wanting or needing eARC, they should be fine.

Think it’s safe to assume that the technical specs on the website for HDMI out is a typo and that it supports eARC.

Not able to locate it. Keeps saying Available Soon. Got a link?

That said, Sennheiser has updated their Ambeo Soundbar webpage as follows:

The AMBEO Soundbar will be available from June 12, 2019
Article No. 508683

Preorders are open in the US on sennhesier’s site. Going to wait for some reviews and want to see the manual my self. Make sure it has normal quality of life stuff like audio delay settings etc.

Preorder!

I've got mine preordered too. All the positive thus far has lead me to justify buying it.

There is no way on earth that you guys are going to be disappointed with this thing. The design of it, with its quite large drivers, and Sennheiser's technology and expertise is obviously reflected in its early reviews. If I had the money right now, I'd be preordering too.
