I have a Cambridge CXU. I'm very happy with it. I do not use any analog connections at all. HDMI to my TV, the other HDMI to my processor Krell Foundation 4K UHD I run as 6.1. Not walls enough for 7.1. I see no problem with no analog connections. For what? (I did use analog in the beginning with my almost 15 years old processor that do not have hdmi connections) I might purchase a CXUHD since I see more and more h265 stuff out there and my TV support UHD. EDIT: I miss the front USB connection that my CXU has and I use all the time. I hope that USB sticks can use a short extension cable for quick access .
