I've been keeping tabs on the HTP-1 Owners Thread, too. (Think I saw you over there, as well, @RichB ).
Some good info from the guys bold enough to be early adopters!

:)
Here are some pictures of the actual unit showing the 8 inputs:

And, Baby Yoda, just because :p

My main panel is 1080p, not sure about early adoption :eek:

When I do the new theater in a few months, I'll be looking at this type of processing, so I praise all that walk before me.

That system recovery covered with a screw are interesting. I wonder if there is red button that loads the unit back to initial state.
That would be brilliant.

I really like to buy one to replace my Anthem AVM40. Waiting for the HDMI 2.1 to be available.

I get it that people would not want to spend a ton until HDMI 2.1 although I’m not convinced it all goes perfectly for 8K on HDMI 2.1 based on past history with HDMI standards. LOL :)

HDMI 2.1 could take a couple of years to be implemented on the Monolith HTP-1.
Yeah, most likely.

I'm from the Philippines, so if I buy it now and want to upgrade it later to hdmi 2.1 would cost my lots of money just for shipping alone, plus the extra time delay.

If I live there in the USA, I would buy it once available again in their website.

I'm hoping hdmi 2.1 upgrade will be available this year.

I just think it's hilarious when they start comparing THD of 0.0008% vs 0.003% vs 0.005%, etc.

It would be a different story if it were THD of 0.003% vs 1% or at least 0.1%.

Newbs might think they could actually hear a difference in SQ among all these tested electronics with THD of 0.005% vs 0.0008%. :D

Bottom line: think about reliability, compatibility, built quality, features, price.

It is a little alarming when Amir said that the $4K AVP built quality feels "cheap".

I don't think Amir said the Marantz AV8805 feels "cheap", did he?

Hopefully he gets his hands on a Yamaha CX-A5100 (skip the 5200 as Gene already said the measurements aren't SOTA).
