Does this matter? Do we wait?

January 6th, 2010



OSAKAOnkyo has announced that all of the A/V receivers in its 2010 line-up will support the new HDMI 1.4 standard. HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) 1.4 specifies a variety of new capabilities for a wide range of video, audio, and computer products. In the case of the new Onkyo products, support will be provided for both 3D video and Audio Return Channel capabilities.



Onkyo is proud to be one of the first to implement HDMI 1.4 across all of its new A/V receivers for 2010. Onkyos strong backing for the new standard is based on a recognition of the added capabilities it enables and the simplification it provides for system connections.



The Audio Return Channel in HDMI 1.4 enables a TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data upstream to an A/V receiver or surround audio controller. This provides increased flexibility to the user and eliminates the need for a separate S/PDIF audio connection.

Can wait in the hope the trade- off to put more features, keeping price constant/less and amp quality degradation is not much.Otherwise it would be the same "like the yamaha 2009 models"( below Rx-V765).

In 2009 we saw Amplifier quality was sub par in an attempt to accommodate more features.
