Deal Details

Last Edited by turnne December 18, 2015 at 04:24 AM
Magnolia Home Theater( inside some Best Buy's) has taken some drastic reduction on higher end AVR's

I bought a Pioneer SC87 yesterday for $550( MSRP $2000)

sku 6377162

They also has a Yamaha A2040 at the same store for $620
YMMV..unfortunately they dont put store specific clearance and open box inventory on their website anymore
If you had the sku numbers someone in any store could look up what is in their region as well

So..its a little more work..but since its more work to find items the potential of finding some good deals is better

check out Best Buy.com and find the stores in your area that have a Magnolia Home Theater/Magnolia Design center
http://www.bestbuy.com/

These will be the higher end units from last year....if you need HDCP 2.2 for the upcoming 4K blu ray then these units wont work

I would personally run a 4K blu ray player with 2 HDMI outputs and keep the hundreds of dollars difference in my pocket

How a receiver is considered high end without HDCP 2.2?

IMO..there can a big difference in having the latest and being high end
especially in this case where the work around would be buying a 4K blu ray player with 2 HDMI outputs

Assuming you are only shopping higher end receivers
That savings alone in my purchase saved me $1200 over this years newest model with the same features/specs ...which would be the Pioneer Elite SC97

One would have the weigh if its worth saving $1200

I don't understand how that works, could you explain to me? If you run it with 2 HDMI outs does the 4k tv convert them to 1 input? /confused

One output goes to tv and makes hdcp 2.2 handshake. Other goes to receiver to pass HD audio.

So I have a question if someone can help. I've been looking for a new receiver and I've been so concerned with the hdcp that I've ruled out many options. But the thing is I do not use physical blu-rays now nor do I plan to ever. Everything I watch is in some sort of file format from a media player/server and I don't foresee that changing with 4k. With that being the case do I need to even be concerned about hdcp as it only applies to copy protected blu-rays or am I mistaken?

you are correct
you have no need for HDCP 2.2 unless you plan to use a 4K blu ray player

no shipping..in store only

exactly my thoughts

However..on the positive side this makes "less" visibility
So..if you happen to be at the right store at the right time the potential savings and selection is probably higher

As I stated in the opening post though...you can go into a store and they can search in their area by sku number

Also matters for streaming video services (Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc). Pretty much any legitimate 4k content with a pricetag on it is going to require HDCP 2.2. Youtube uploads, Twitch streams, ripped videos and gaming will all work fine without it.
