One aspect we can’t see from the photos is the on screen GUI. This will be interesting to see the feature set and how user friendly it is.
Also, I can’t tell if the second monitor out is just a copy of whatever the primary is or if it can be independent from another source.
One feature lacking from my denons is the ability to independently select audio and video from any source. They do offer “video select” on audio only sources. But it sure would be nice to be able to listen to audio from one hdmi source and watch video from a different source. Will this unit offer such flexibility?
It’s interesting that it has no unbalanced outputs past the mains. Even the sub outs are xlr. I will admit that the one speaker I’m most Likely to want to use a balanced input is is a sub due to sometimes long cable runs for some installations. But on the other hand, the average sub has no such input. I guess we just use xlr to rca adapters in these cases.
Anyone who uses 3 subs, and I do in 2 different rooms is going to lose a pair of Atmos speaker options, making this unit a lot less unique. With as little as 2 subs you are really going to lose that extra Atmos pair because the are a pair. If you lose 1 you lose 2. And if you do use 3 subs, will the units room correction software independently testvall three? My current systems only have 2 sub outs and I have to use a wire splitter on one and speaker level inputs on th3 other system. But since this has 3 outputs it must be able to balance 3 subs in the room.
A $4000 price point doesn’t make me want to run out and grab one as soon as they are out. By June, I’m sure there will be a lot more products out there with the same feature set. The quality better be audiophile grade at this price point.
