The Official Anthem AVM 60 thread

Just moved to a new house and got a new Sony 85” 4K tv and want to start watching some 4K stuff. Planning on getting the Apple 4K TV to do that.
I have been told my Marantz 8801 will not pass 4K...but when I got the Marantz it says it passes 4K Ultra Deep HD in the owners manual.
Thinking of upgrading to the Anthem AMV60. But have been told it doesn’t work with Apple 4K TV well if at all and you can’t use a MacBook for Anthems ARC.
Just looking for straight honest answers.....thanks in advance!
My Apple TV 4K works fine with my AVM60 into a 75” Sony 900E. Infact it looks great on the Sony 4K. Only issues I have had are when I tried using CEC and BravoSync. Switched off CEC and have no problems.
Also use a Mac which worked fine for the new ARC Genesis Room Correction. Mac did not work with previous ARC 2 Room Correction only on windows.
I read that AV8801 does not support HDCP2.2 despite it being 4k capable, hence will not work with all new 4K devices / content? It has HDMI 1.4 inputs/output whereas you need HDMI 2.0 with HDCP2.2 nowadays for most 4K devices?
