I can only speak for myself. All I needed that was missing from my prior receiver was earc and atmos. I waited for 2 years after buying my A9f for Anthem to add earc. I have better things to do with my time than gaming. WHEN I want an 8K TV, MAYBE there will be 8K disc medium and an 8K player. If that happens, any 8K TV will have HDMI 2.1 ports that I can connect a player to using earc back to the receiver for audio. It will take several years for HDMI 2.1 to become stable when mixing brands together. (eg: LG TV with Anthem AV with MS xbox. Although I'm confident that Sony will probably have good compatibility if you cobble together a Sony TV with a Sony receiver with a Sony PS5 or some other Sony 5k player.)

The Anthem will serve my needs for a long time into the future so I decided not to wait. YMMV.
