Hello audio gurus,
I have recently bit the bullet and purchased the Klipsch KLR820P5112 R820F 5.1ch Speaker Pack, now I just need a decent AVR to power these.
The Denon AVR-X3500 has recently been reduced at my local store and I can pick this up for AU $1,700 however I am aware that the X2600 and X3600 models are coming to Australia soon.
I do love saving some $$$'s wherever possible but want to ensure that the AVR I purchase will be somewhat future proofed. My main concerns with going with the current X3500 are listed below -
HDCP 2.2 whereas the newer models will feature version 2.3 - I'm not in the market for an 8k TV so not sure if this will be an issue for me.
Lack of eARC support, although this may now be enabled via a 2018 update?
I will be looking at purchasing an LG OLED later this year along with an Nvidia Shield to stream media from my QNAP NAS.
I am looking to have a 5.1.2 speaker setup and will be including 2 ceiling speakers to produce an Atmos effect.
Would you guys go for the current gen X3500 or wait for with the X2600 or X3600? My budget may not allow for the X3600 hence why I've included the X2600 for comparison.
Thank you all.
