But sadly, Anthem seems to be ignoring 4K completely, and while I care most about sound, there isn't a practical way to split out the 4K HDMI video/audio (e.g. from the AppleTV 4K) to my current setup and the new projector. I tried a bunch of devices when I setup my LG OLED 4K in the family room, and none of the splitters, etc. support true 4K/4:4:4/Dolby Vision splitting. Not sure why, but they don't.
So - any recommendations for a comparable pre-pro in terms of sound quality, that also supports at least full 4K passthrough? Not sure I care about upscaling as nearly all my video at this point is coming from the AppleTV (now 4K). I do care about sound quality though, and the sound processing. No Atmos, but full 7.1 (maybe 7.2 soon).
Oh, would also like preset video zoom settings too, like the D2 has, in case the projector doesn't support auto anamorphic/non-animorphic conversion.
Thanks in advance!
I would guess that you have not tried an HDFury Vertex then.
