I don't use VR and rarely switch HDMI. I use my universal remote to turn the receiver on to what I will use, so don't switch.
I don't mean to sound pushy but I think you misunderstood what I said so I'd like to clarify. If you still aren't interested in what I'm saying, that's fine. Just want to make sure I'm getting the correct point across for you to make a proper decision.
I'm not talking VR. VRR is "variable refresh rate" and it's like VESA/AMD FreeSync or Nvidia GSync on PCs where if your source drops below 60fps, your display can slow down in sync with your source so you don't see judder or tearing artifacts. It makes gaming look a lot smoother when your PC or gaming console can't keep up with your display's frame rate. Many games do drop frames on both modern gaming consoles and even high-end gaming PCs.
And when I talk about QMS and QFT, if you want to see what I mean, go turn on your Blu-ray player and your cable box/streaming device. Switch between them on your receiver. Your screen will probably go blank for around 5 seconds. HDMI 2.1 will supposedly reduce this delay significantly.
Not everyone games, not everyone switches sources on their receiver often, and the delay doesn't bother everyone. If you're in this camp, that's fine (and is better for you because you will have no "need" to wait for the new tech). Just wanted to make sure that I explained these points properly.
If none of this is necessary to you and the SR6011 meets your needs then go ahead and buy it anytime.
EDIT to note: Just to make sure you're aware, SR6011 only has 9 amps built in. You'll need an external 2+ channel amp to get to 11 channels.
