When do the 2014 receivers come out (specifically HDMI 2.0)?

I've pretty much decided to upgrade my Onkyo 876 this year after the new HDMI 2.0 receivers come out (I actually bought my Onkyo right before the 1.4 spec came out and I wanted to pass 3d!). I'm leaning toward a new Onkyo or Denon in the $1000-$1500 range. I was half expecting announcements at CES, but not dice. Does anyone have an idea?

I'm pretty sure the Denon's never get announced until March (maybe early April) and start shipping a month or 2 later (for the lower end models, I think...higher end take another month or 2). I'm looking to update my Denon, and am assuming that I won't get the mid-range one until May/June.
If the stars align, Emotiva's HDMI 2.0 XMC-1 will start shipping in March.
Onkyo's TX-NR929 came out last March so I'm assuming there will be another refresh this March. That's what I'm waiting on too because I don't want to be stuck with a receiver that doesn't do 4K at 60FPS a few years down the line. It's bad enough that I have to replace the receiver I do have (TX-SR607) because it doesn't support 3D with the new Panasonic 65VT60 I just bought. But yeah I am definitely going to hold out so that my next receiver purchase is as futureproof as possible.
Thanks for the replies. It looks like I am not getting a new receiver until after March madness. I can't wait to get Audyssey Multeq xt32 (as well as HDMI 2.0).
seki told me they have native 2.0 ion there 4k tv by the end of 2014

but we have to see as we can not even get a 2.0 switch
