I knew I resisted the upgrade bug for a reason, plus Steve was hinting as if something like bass mgmt was coming. Looks like I could be going back to Pioneer after 2 plus years with a Denon 4311. Please link when you can. Thanks.

Here's what the Pio website says about HDMI 2.0
Quote:
Offering 7 HDMI 2.0 inputs, the VSX-1124-K handles 4K2K Ultra HD video at 60 frames per seconds. 4K Ultra HD is the latest high-definition video display format, with four times the resolution of 1080p. Ready to deliver 4K Ultra HD video signals to a compatible display, the Pioneer VSX-1124 supports home theater systems dedicated to producing the highest quality picture available today. HDMI 2.0 is also backwards compatible with earlier versions of HDMI. A future firmware update will allow 4:4:4 based 4K2K60P content to be handled offering up to 18GBPS throughput.
And Subwoofer EQ
Quote:
Subwoofer EQ determines the exact location and characteristics of your subwoofer, and makes adjustments using four different frequency parameters and an extremely low-latency DSP to reduce phase and timing errors that are often found in other room calibration systems.

Same here. Almost bought a Marantz 7008 but figure HMDI 2.0 is right around the block.

These are A/B amps. The yet to be announced SC-81, SC-85, SC-87, SC-89 will have the class-D amps.

Thanks for the INFO!

In the interest of rumor control... see post # 11 in the earlier thread from Chris Walker of Pioneer Electronics:

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1522219/2014-pioneer-elite-vsx-80-vsx-44-avrs-announced

Chris offered a clarification about which specific 2014 Pioneer AVR's announced to date that offer new MCACC which includes bass EQ. Apparently there was a typo in some web-pages yesterday, Wednesday March 12, 2014 that he fixed this morning.

Folks will want to check carefully which version of MCACC is in the model they are looking at. Chris has said:


basic MCACC

advanced MCACC


and another yet-to-be-announced more advanced version in the top Elites with more capability.


I don't mean to be obvious but don't make assumptions when shopping as I've seen numerous posts over the last 2 years where people get a price "deal" then find out, or worse complain, that it doesn't have such & such. only yourself to blame if you don't do your homework

Here's to hoping at least the top units offer 11 channel capabities with more sophisticated sub eq.


Oh, AND more thorough control of digital sources to the additional zones!
