Denon and Marantz announce flagship AV amplifiers with full HDMI 2.1 and 8K support

And their predecessors can be upgraded to 2021 spec, too

Denon and Marantz have launched flagship AV receivers to sit at the top of their respective home cinema trees. The Denon AVC-X8500HA and Marantz AV8805A are kitted out with all the HDMI 2.1, 8K and 3D audio features one can imagine, and an upgrade path for owners of the previous models has been announced, too.
