Nice, it has 5.0 ghz wifi... I hope the 2015 Denons add that...The new Pioneer VSX-45 was just released and under your budget ... with HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2.
AFAIK, the Pioneer models are currently the only models on the street with full HDMI 2.0 (18GHz)/HDCP 2.2. You'll have to wait a few more weeks for the other brands to release their lower level HDCP 2.2. models as well.Thanks for the info. Any others you recommend with hdmi 2.2? Maybe I can add an amp at some point.
I wouldn't worry about HDCP 2.2 until there is a bunch of HDCP 2.2 content out there. By that time, you will prolly want to upgrade again anyway.I'm guessing you guys wouldn't recommend going with a non 2.2 compliant receiver? Seems like it's going to be a big deal.
Sure, if you want to be an early adopter and pay through the nose for first-gen devices and a handful of titles. Myself, I prefer the wait and see approach and let things shake out first.UHD blu-ray is supposed to be released later this year and you'll need HDCP 2.2 for it to work.
Only if you plan on upgrading to a 4k/HDCP 2.2 TV and 4k/HDCP 2.2 source in the next few years, otherwise, 1080p sources will still work just fine.I'm guessing you guys wouldn't recommend going with a non 2.2 compliant receiver? Seems like it's going to be a big deal.
The onkyos don't support 18.2 Gbps. Which may limit some UHD enhancements like HDR and 10 or 12 bit color. All the new 2015 models should support 18.2 Gbps.If you don't care about Audyssey then the Onkyo line has HDMI 2.0 + HDCP 2.2 working already. The TX-NR636 looks like a good deal with strong feature-set.
No one knows what UHD content will be available and when, but once UHD blu-ray is released, I would guess the vast majority of new movie releases will be available in the new format. As far as price goes, I don't know what the price of players or disks will be, but it's not relevant to whether or not content is available.Sure, if you want to be an early adopter and pay through the nose for first-gen devices and a handful of titles. Myself, I prefer the wait and see approach and let things shake out first.
If you can wait then do it because hdcp 2.2 will gradually go down in price. The kicker is even theVery possible tI at I will upgrade to a 4k TV this year. I'll go 2.2 and wait a bit. Hopefully my 1121k won't crap out. I like the Denon 4k series. Just have to fork up the cash!
