For me, the notion that the new equipment hitting the streets is 4K compatible is a half-truth, because there's a good chance the industry will tap into the abilities of HDMI 2.0. The same thing happened with 3D... right?
That's what I'm thinking. The idea that getting a 4K capable receiver or TV right now will prevent it from going obsolete until the next (8K... who knows?) format is available is not entirely true. But a lot of consumers may be lead to believe that. I guess it will depend on what standards are set for 4K physical media. Either way, I'm not planning to jump on any kind of UHD/4K/HDMI 2.0 bandwagon until the dust settles and the prices come down. Until then I'll tolerate my measly 60" 1080p plasma display and just keep beefing up my audio system

I agree 100%. Best to wait it out. Who knows what will happen. Even with no 4K or Ultra HD content, prices are crazy high for the 4K equipment. Maybe in 5 to 10 years, when 4K is available and prices are reasonable, sure..

While I love tech and following its development, I'm in the same boat as you. Very content waiting.

I see no point in 4K. Currently there is little to no content, people will most likely have to replace most of there stuff and for what? A res that you may not be able to see a difference in unless your running a really huge screen

Most people I know are running 55 to 60 inch systems what need do they have for this type of rez when I can set there current setup to 720 and back to 1080 and half can't see the difference.

Now if I was running a 200 inch screen sure I can see this being a really nice thing but with my current 55 inch and no room for larger what is it they have to offer the average person who does not have a endless pocket book for upgrades every other year.

Also until it is a industry wide product I see no reason to spend a cent because for all I know it is a money grab kink of like how we had HD DVD and BluRay at the same time. It is a neat idea but until they have a 55" set down to $800 or so and everything set in stone I cant see it going far.

I look at it this way in the last year I just redid my setup why spend all that money again to buy something that the movies and industry have not said they even plan to make content for.

A lot of the content they list for 4K I am guessing is going to be up-converted sense a lot of the list I have seen was a mix of older and newer so how is this going to look? They had a hard time taking stuff on DVD and up-converting it and making it look good what is something with 4 times the res going to look like when DVD was really a small jump when compared to this.

When they answer all of this maybe I will look into it. Am I being too picky with this or does anything I have said make a bit of sense.

I am definitely waiting and will not jump in to the 4k market until prices are affordable. I have a 120 inch screen. The upgrade would be expensive ie new screen/projector/bluray player. I will stick with 1080p and continue to improve audio system/room response.

Surrounds- Goldenear SuperSat 50's
Amps - Bryston 4Bsst2/Emotiva XPA-5
