The 2600H is a good option. You get better room correction with the 3700H. I would wait till they sort the 4K chip debacle if i were you. End of year i believe.
I can't seem to find this anywhere over here, only the new X2700 model. It's so hard to guess the impact of 2 different versions of room correction, just how much better would XT32 sound in my room and how much is that worth..The 2600H is a good option.

Haha, yeah I'm in Europe@Bnaan yes total overkill but that's what this hobby is all about.
So most everything built from 2016 to now should have hdmi 2.0, which I believe allows [email protected] passthrough. You will not get some of the newest features like auro-3d or Dolby Vision, etc. but if you don't need those or atmos then the used 7 channel mid-high end market will allow you get much more bang for your buck; legacy inputs, pre-outs, analog inputs on some and often better power supplies. Think Arcam, Audio control, lexicon, rotel, NAD, Mcintosh. Onkyo, Integra and Pioneer Elite. Can't discuss pricing or where to buy, but if you look you can find some amazing deals. Assuming you are in the US, which you flag indicates you might not be?
OK throw all of that out the window, if available yes the x3600 and x3700 you mentioned are about as good as it gets for the money right now.
If you are going to add gaming to this area in the future, then maybe wait until the end of 2021 for the new Pioneer, Onkyo or Yamaha Aventage receivers. They are all supposed to be coming out with support for hdmi 2.1 - [email protected] / [email protected]
Hmm interesting, I hadn't even considered that as an option. The LG CX I'm planning to buy has 4 HDMI inputs, which is exactly the amount I need.If the TV you're buying does 5.1 passthrough, I'd keep what you have and connect all your video sources to your TV and run a single digital out to your receiver. As long as your TV has enough inputs to support all your sources and offers pass-through 5.1, you're good to go.

Not necessarily. I bought a stereo Bluetooth receiver with RCA out just for streaming audio from my phone. It works great.Hmm interesting, I hadn't even considered that as an option. The LG CX I'm planning to buy has 4 HDMI inputs, which is exactly the amount I need.
Aside from the lack of DTS support on the LG, any other downsides to using this?
Edit: I guess a pretty considerable downside is that even if I want to stream just music through a Chromecast for example the tv has to be turned on?
Bummer on the Plasma. I had my Samsung F8500 repaired a couple years ago. Cost me 400.00, but well worth the money, IMHO.Well, I probably jinxed it by posting this thread because my plasma just failed..
Unless you just bypass all that crap and wire direct to the display like we did with an LG OLED. On the other hand, in that system you could hear the Audyssey XT32 really flatten the bass peaks and dips. You can save a bunch if you wire direct and buy an older XT32 someone ditched due to no 4k...just be sure to get a model compatible to the app* which then allows you to make some adjustments, like remove Audyssey's midrange dip, put the gentler HF rolloff curve. In one system I boosted the upper mid about 1 decibel because it sounded a bit recessed.I'll need a new avr to enjoy 4K and HDR content.
