I watched a bit of Avatar (DTS-HD MA 5.1) last night, with DTS Neural:X enabled, and was blown away. Jungle ambiance, animal noises, and helicopter sounds were perfectly placed in the ceiling channels, and I caught myself grinning in amazement on multiple occasions.

Isn't that system of yours about 4 months old now? Time to consider upgrading. smile

Haha, definitely. My next upgrade would be to move to a full separates setup, but I get the feeling that Anthem is due to refresh the AVM60, so I might hold out for a bit.

Aside from that, I'll be grabbing a Vizio Quantum X TV once they're available.

They need to refresh it due to parts obsolescence.

Which parts are obsolete?

Anthem hasn't shared parts details but the AVM60 tech is at least 9 years old. That's old for high volume electronics.

Interesting. That turns me off the AVM60 for sure. My Denon/ADA combo is working quite well, so I'm in no rush to upgrade.

If they're refreshing it, you have nothing to worry about. The problem with parts going obsolete is that it affects profitability, lead time and innovation by eating away at engineering resources who have to test and approve part substitutions.

At this point, I think refresh = brand new model. The AVM60 was released in late-2015.

Makes sense. If the Denon is serving your needs, save up for active M5s. smile
