I'm in the process of doing a little updating of the secondary (Lounge room) setup and among other things the AVR is past it's usefulness.
I already have some new bits;
- Panasonic OLED
- Panasonic BP-UD420 4K player
I will also be replacing the PVR (Beyonwiz) with a Fetch TV once the NBN is connected (soon).
The speakers are a 5.0 setup of Paradigm Monitors so fairly efficient and easily driven.
Unfortunately the Current Pioneer SC-LX71 AVR, while still working great, is just too far out of date, it doesn't even have ARC, let alone HDMI 2.X required for 4K......
All up I will require 4 HDMI inputs, 1 HDMI output, not particularly powerful or high quality, to be used primarily for TV, streaming and occasional background music.
Basically I need a hub/switch between the screen and various devices that handles the audio.
The lounge room is fairly acoustically compromised anyway and high quality viewing and music is reserved for the dedicated media room!
I'm in no hurry and will just play musical remotes/cables/inputs in the interim until I decide (still hurting from the OLED purchase anyway).
Just looking for suggestions on what's out there as I've been out of the loop for a while.......
Budget? The further below $2K it is the happier I'll be!
PS> I'm reasonably brand agnostic but do want decent room correction if possible.
PPS> I can make what I have work, it's just, well, ya know......new stuff........
