Hook up to my IR repeater, and I can switch 4K inputs with the little remote.
Certainly not as nice as a new AVR, but it's only $100 and then I can support 3 sources.
If I need to see the volume or change audio settings on screen, I can change to the other projector input which will show me the AVR video, then make changes to volume or audio settings.
And, I will not have spent so much money that I would balk at getting a new AVR sooner rather than later anyway.
so, pretty much all of this. albeit, at a much smaller level.
i love my 7009.
i have an old technics turntable attached that sounds magnificent through the 7009 and totems.
i bought the system specifically for sound.
but, sound on all fronts.
tv, cable, and roku, and various others, too.
there's nothing much better than watching programming with excellent sound.
then, i made the *mistake* of snapping up a 4k tv. sony a9f.
i've been going back and forth for months deciding whether to upgrade the marantz for a unit that will pass 4k.
but, as previously mentioned, i don't want to have to upgrade to something just for 4k pass through and handshaking.
if i upgrade, ideally, it gets upgraded for sound.
you know, the thing that is its actual purpose.
has anyone here managed to get ARC to work reliably?
i have to say, i know we're spoiled, but i really prefer things when they work natively.
so, has *anyone* gotten ARC to work reliably?
if so...would you mind sharing how you managed it?
