Default Any word on hdmi 2.1 on any 2018 receivers yet??

Need to upgrade soon and I know 2.1 is coming. Want this to be my last purchase for a while. I have not seen any specs on any of the new 2018 gear including 2.1 yet. Any word on any companies including it, or is this another wait till CES...

There is never going to be a last purchase when you want to keep up with the changes. What do you get with HDMI 2.1 that you can't have with HDMI 2.0?

More bandwidth and at least 7-10 years of future proofing seems to be a good reason to wait less than a year, no? Maybe I am wrong, but 2018 seems to be the year to upgrade, especially if your current AVR is from 2008-09 . I wish the manufacturers would start releasing some specs on 2018 models, as I have not seen anything posted, hence my starting this thread. I assume they are waiting for CES to unleash information, but there may be something already out there, not sure. 2.1 seems to be the 'end all' for HDMI, possibly for the next 10 years, which is fine with me. Yes, 2.0 is fine now, but may not be in 3-4 years, which is my point. Again, seems to be the 'solution' for video for a long while. Audio seems to be fine for years to come too with firmware upgrade, especially with 'connected' receivers, which were not around in 2008-09.

As far as I understand it, eARC is the biggie and imminent benefit of 2.1.

If only eARC had come before HDR.

timeframe? :: earliest (real products) will be early 2019

look to CES 2019 for announcements (possibly CEDIA 2018)

certification and hardware should be, beginning in late 2018

note :: i too, am wanting to make a purchase, with the long timeframe in mind (waiting also - patience is required though) :: be careful at the early stages though

These will be included on 8K devices. Some TV's in some areas supposed to be out in the fall....but prices will be very high. I'd wait till spring/summer 2019 at the earliest.

8K compat is another plus for this standard, as well as the increase for 4K. IMO, its worth the wait.
