Hmmm. Better get my pennies together quick for the '87.  I've certainly been very impressed with my AVR.  Has regularly exceeded my expectations & brought plenty of smiles to my face.  It'll be sad to see them depart.

Bit like Torvill & Dean - retiring at the top of their game.

no reason why it shouldn't still be (it's not like pioneer are going bust, they'll still provide after sales service and honour any warranties, just like they did when they stopped making kuro TV's).

Yes true it's still top of my list .its between the pioneer and the anthem my only prob now is this blimen hdmi 2.0 .i know it doesn't matter till I have 4k products but 2grand is a wee chunk of change to be well not obsolete but still not up to the job with 4K.

Fair comment, will be a crying shame if they don't do what Panasonic did with the ZT, and bring out a 'curtain call' Top end AV receiver that includes HDMI2. Doesn't look likely though.

Well, judging from the report in the OP, they've only got until July.

And so, on Feb 22nd 1966,...

RE: Pioneer to move away from AV altogether?

Yes, but we're only just getting a (little bit) of 4k at 24fps (which lx87 can handle). Hdmi 2 is only
Really used for 4k at 60fps. I doubt that'll fit on a bluray and streaming services (not to mention broadband speeds a for most people) are not there yet.
Netflix can send 4k, but that won't require hdmi 2 and it doesn't even have hd sound as far as I know.
It's a very long way off.

Which is why I don't understand all the breathless excitement about it, both here and on other sites.
