New HDMI 2.1 Compliant Receivers

Is there any information on actual release dates for home theater receivers from any manufacturers that are fully HDMI 2.1 compliant? Are there any current receivers that can be upgraded to full 2.1 specifications? It appears the delay seems to be the chips required for the video processing.

Denon and Marantz have recently introduced new receivers that have some features such as HCDP 2.3, but are not true HDMI 2.1 standards. There has been very little information provided any of the manufacturers. It is very difficult to decide on an av receiver purchase at this time. Especially, if the new models will be released in the near future. Any information would be appreciated.

The HDMI forum has discouraged vendors from specifying which HDMI spec revision a product supports. This is because many features can be supported even on previous revisions, while other features are not ready or not available for implementation.

Features available now include things like eARC, VRR, high refresh rates, and such. Features that won't be out for a while (think 2020) include high bandwidth like 48Gpbs (in fact, the qualification tests are not complete yet so no one can release any product for certification).

If you want to wait for 8k support and all that, you'll have to wait until next year. Likely certification standards will be approved later this year while approved cabling and switching devices will start appearing next year as the devices get certified against the tests.

The first HDMI 2.1 models should be released in 2020.

The only currently released major brand models that can be hardware upgraded to HDMI 2.1 (likely next year as well) are the current "flagship" AVR Denon X8500H and AVP Marantz AV8805.

2018. Yamaha receivers has eARC (and HDCP 2.3) via firmware update. The new models will arrive only in 2020 (no 2019 new models), so 1 more year, at least for Yamaha.

DOLBY ATMOS 5.2.4 - Yamaha RX-A2080 - Klipsch RP-280F - RP-450C - RP-250S - RP-140SA - R-112SW - LG OLED 55B7 - HiMedia Q30 - Xbox One X SE

Is there a citation on the "no 2019 models" from Yamaha anywhere?

Sure. Just call Yamaha to confirm.
