That also looks like one that has a passive sub, so it's not nearly as easy to upgrade as systems that have a normal powered sub. My parents have one like that, maybe that model, and it is good for TV sound that doesn't suck, but it doesn't have the "WOW" factor of the THX systems.
EDIT: Amazon is showing that unit as having HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2. If that's the case, you just set it up like normal and you'll get 4k and DTS-HD MA.

(Granted, I'm in an apartment, so sound is a concession I'm making on some level temporarily.)
So... after researching, I'm thoroughly confused.
I called Onkyo's customer service and the guy told me this particular system is *not* HDCP 2.2 compliant. He didn't seem exactly sure about what he was saying (you can always tell when someone on the phone is looking up technical specs and trying to make sense of them), but I'm in a position now of believing him or Amazon's site.
He added that I should be seeing 4K/60Hz from my Blu-ray without issue, but that without HDCP 2.2, I cannot upconvert anything properly.
Option 1) If I'm to believe Amazon's site, is there a way I can verify that I'm getting the proper 4K transfer -- besides an eyeball test?
Option 2) If Amazon is WRONG, is there any precedent for them and/or Onkyo replacing my equipment 3 years after purchase? That's a terribly stupid question to me as I type it, but this seems like a fairly drastic case of false advertising on Amazon's part if the unit indeed isn't HDCP 2.2
I'm at a loss, increasingly frustrated, and increasingly eager to watch my new OLED knowing I'm seeing the best picture possible... ah, technology.
