This sentence does mean nothing. First planning can be defined as the design phase and not the manufacturing phase or everything before the manufacturing phase. Second momentum can go from, some people have had some meeting around a cup of coffee to freely exchange on this new version and agree to meet again in one year, to we have plan/agree to start producing in 12 months or whatever month number you want to put here.
This is the typical sentence that allows the talker to say nothing while talking. Everyone will interpret the sentence with their own biases and will leave happy believing they got the answer or confirmation they were waiting for. Very very good speech. I will take this one next time I have to BS something.
Thank you! I read that article and kept choking on my laughter. So much "marketing" verbiage to say nothing more than what was included in the CES announcement.

I can't argue about a 2-cable solution. And I'm delighted that with my A3060 I don't have to rely on that for stunning UHD/4K and Atmos/DTS:X. In and out with "certified premium" HDMI cables (less than $10 investment) and it's all complete end-to-end. So with 2.1 leaking out over the next 2 - 3 years or more (no manufacturer has yet said that they will produce any products which FULLY support 2.1), I have the 2-cable option in my back pocket to extend my setup life. So AFAIK
, my "future-proofing" will take me to at a least 2020 (I don't buy either '18 or '19) before anyone can attract me with some 2.1 enabled function.
All this forum chatter to get back where I started in my first comment (Post #4132).
And sadly, nothing new stated or learned. But I do appreciate the S&V article -- at least it told me that I haven't missed anything.
Edit: Reading back, I want to apologize if that sounds like ridicule -- not intended.
, we just have widely different views (and maybe interpretations) about how these things will progress. I think we have reached a relatively
stable "pause" in the vertical acceleration rate of A/V development and, for me, this was a good time to put a stake in the ground.
