    Lame. But probably something dictated by Dolby, not Panasonic.

    I may be very well be buying this 4K blu-ray player next year. This year is a Marantz SR-8012 and next year this player then I need to decide if I am going with a projector or just moving to a 80" - 85" 4K display.

    Love your receiver choice. It one of the three receivers that can be hardware upgraded to HDMI 2.1 with the full 48Gbps bandwidth and all of the specs and features of HDMI 21.

    Yes, we are factory direct Marantz and Denon Showcase Reference dealers.

    The only receivers that I know of that are hardware upgradable are Marantz's SR8012, 11.2 channel receiver, Marantz's pre-pro processor the AV8805 and Denon's AVR-X8500H 13.2 channel receiver.

    Marantz will begin to offer HDMI 2.1 hardware upgrades as soon as HDMI chipsets become available and have passed q/c, which is expected by the end of this year.

    I agree, it's a great discussion to have.

    Maybe we could invite some folks here to participate.

    I'm seriously looking at the SR8012 receiver right now for an upgrade over my Yamaha 3060 receiver.
