Yeah I am feeling the same way. I'm looking to get an avr this year. If it does turn out the new models only have 1 48Gbps in/out port, I think instead I'll buy the Denon x3600h, wait it out a few years, and try my luck with eARC.Yup. While I only need two (PS5 and Xbox Series X) I'd rather have all of them (not counting the lame duck front port). Because for sure something will come along that will need another 48Gbps port.
