Yeah, cables are going to be more of an issue this time around. I currently use a 15ft one so would have to go fiber if I ever got a 4K120 AVR. There’s a good thread discussing it here https://www.avsforum.com/forum/168-hdmi-q-one-connector-world/3071130-hdmi-cables-properly-reliably-support-48-gbps-hdmi-2-1-a.html
Projector people still have a bit of time. Most likely there will be AVRs with multiple 4K120 ports by then. And we still don’t know what the other AVR manufacturers will have.
My AVR is from 2013 or so... it can’t do Atmos or 4k60. I’m looking for an AVR now.
However, I won’t buy an AVR that’s limited at inception due to lack of modern ports. I don’t want to chuck an AVR after a year or even 3...
And for sure, there will be sources and displays that require this sooner than I’ll want to replace the AVR.
For me, it means sticking with the really old AVR I have now for even more years, which I’m prepared to do if I must.
Let’s see what the other AVR makers do...
At worst I can buy a cheap stop gap AVR , but yeah no investing in high end, crippled AVR - knowing it’s crippled out the gate.
