Well it's official, the first pre/pro or receiver announced with HDMI 2.0. Will this change anyone's mind about getting it?

It has to be released to be the "first". I will bet money this pre/pro will not be the first hdmi 2.0 to hit the streets...

I'd very much like to see this company succeed with this. If you've got one of their big discounts, (I don't) I doubt you can go too wrong pulling the trigger on this on Day1. I suspect their customer service efforts on this will be 2nd to none. I like dealing with a small company where there's a chance they'll listen to their customers' wishes and suggestions and act upon them. Having said that, I've done the "early adopter" thing enough times to know that in many instances all you do is help discover the after-market bugs only to watch the product being sold for less to late-comers just before it goes obsolete. So for me, right now it's ignore the hype and wait a while.

Based on their last fiasco of a pre/pro release, I would wait until user reports come in. Hopefully they hit a home run with HDMI 2.0 and Dirac but with Emotiva, I will believe it when I see it. If they release a fairly bug free device, this could be a big hit for them.
