    Cheers, just bought Q accoustics 3050 and was looking for an AV receiver

  •  

    Good unit but not a great time to by an AVR with all the new HDMI standards around the corner.

    •  

      Do you mean HDR standards?

      •  

        I assume he means HDMI 2.1

        Yes HDMI 2.1

        Would suck to spend $1K on an AVR then next year has all these juicy features.

        If you have enough cash to upgrade in 12-24 months time then grab this, if you plan to keep this a long time I would wait.

        AVR prices are really bad in Australia…Denon 2400 (similar or better than this) was $650 delivered from Amazon Germany before we got geoblocked. :(

          Except wouldn't you have to upgrade your TV as well, as it needs to support all of those features too! And by then HDMI 2.2 or 3.0 will be announced…

            @stokesy77: Pretty much, some 2.1 features will be added via firmware but the full experience will likely require a new TV and AVR.

            I would expect PS5 and the next xbox to support it. i.e. 4K/120 and VRR.

            The whole thing is a mess really…expensive hardware going out of date in a matter of a couple of years isnt good.

    I don’t get the fascination with eARC, why not just plug all devices into the receiver with one HDMI to the TV. Who plugs everything into the TV?

    •  

      That's exactly what I do, surely that's the reason they often have so many HDMI inputs. And maybe why they're called a "RECEIVER"…???

      Smart TVs; if you want to use your TV as your streaming device and have DTS-MA,Atmos,DTSX etc sound to your AVR.
