Help choosing a receiver.
OK, so the time has come to upgrade my baby. My 3803 cannot pass HDMI and I am moving to a 4k projector next year. With that in mind, I am trying to choose the best receiver for my needs.
First, I play a lot of my old school systems so I would like the receiver to give a good picture with my old systems. To my understanding, that would require an analog to hdmi scaler iirc. Please correct, or further enlighten me, on this issue as you see fit. The more info I can get, the better. I am not interested in any SCART solutions.
Second, I am upgrading to 4k next year. I want to have something that will give me as many of the new bells and whistles as possible. I will have a gaming PC (980ti), PS4 Pro, and any other sources that are viable. This means I need HDR amongst other things. I would like to learn more about what, exactly, I need in my receiver to maximize my benefits with these options.
Is there anything else I should be looking out for? I know this is a lot, but I don't spend this much money often so I want to make the best choice for my needs. I am looking to spend up to $600, maybe a little more if it makes a big difference. Thanks for the help, folks. I am looking to buy this weekend.
