Before I return my AVR-X3600H...
I currently have an AVR-x3300W in a 5.1 configuration. I just bought the Sony XBR85X900F TV and am looking to upgrade my whole system to take advantage of the 4K video and Atmos audio capabilities of the Netflix (and other apps) on that unit. My current setup is an XBone, NVidia Shield and HD cable box, all fed into the 3300 which feed the TV through the ARC HDMI channel (in case it matters, speakers are Totem in front and back, DT Mythos 3 centre and HSU sub). So here's my question: I recently picked up an AVR-x3600H on sale for BF, and am on the fence as to whether or not to keep it. The used market for my 3300 is not great (I might be able to get half of what I paid for it 2 years ago), and it's only a couple of years old, so it supports virtually all video and audio formats the 3600 does (with a few exceptions). My main reason for getting the 3600 was the eARC support, as I though this would allow Atmos to be passed through the ARC channel to the receiver when playing the Sony Netflix app, but as others have point out (in another forum), ARC should be able to handle that just fine. I do really like the idea of BT headphone connectivity on the 3600, but apart from that, I dont really see the upside. Any thoughts on whether or not to keep it? I am fully confident that next year's BF sale will have an equally good deal on (likely) a better unit, but I did get a very good deal on the 3600.
Sorry for all the reading but I'm just looking for opinions on this. Is the 3600 that much of an upgrade?
