  1. Thanks for the link and the heads up. Maybe I'll just wait to order a new receiver then. Sounds like its not worth dealing with right now.
  2. Is there a big difference between Marantz and Denon in terms of UI? It looks like they both support HDMI 2.1 so it sounds like it will come down to simplicity and user experience. I haven't been able to find any videos on the UI of either since there are so few videos on 8K receivers in general.
  3. That sounds like a good plan, thank you for the recommendation. I'll give B&H a call to see when they're expecting more in.
  4. They'll actually be installing this TV in their bedroom so I don't think they'll need that powerful of speakers, but I appreciate the recommendation. This is more of a TV to just watch football on, they don't really watch movies or anything like that so the audio isn't a huge factor. I'm just hoping to find something that can drive 8K content when it becomes available and will be easy to use. Those are probably the two most important factors.
  5. Well apparently there are AV receivers that have built in streaming service apps, so now I'm wondering if there is one that can stream and support 4K (and eventually) 8K. I'm not sure if the built in OS for the TV has the ability to play 8K content off a external drive, but I doubt it. I believe Sony intends for the user to have a dedicated receiver that will handle all of the media.
  6. Hello all, I just assisted a family member with ordering a Sony 98" Z9G MASTER Series that will arrive from Japan in a few weeks and in the meantime I am looking for an 8K receiver to pair it with. With 8K being so new I have found little in terms of receivers or anything that can drive content 8K. I'm thinking that it might be easier to just build a dedicated PC with a RTX 3080 or something, but my family member really just uses his TV to watch sports and it would be a nightmare trying to run cable provider content through a PC, since most channels only broadcast 4K sports coverag
  7. Yeah but I have to have the best of the best...
  8. So I have a 980 Ti and for some reason I get really really bad scores for PassMark, and I'm not sure why. The card handles 4K gaming absolutely fine, but absolutely blows in benching. My CPU is at 4.8 GHz so I can't imagine that is bottle necking it, I don't understand whats wrong. I get the same results in PassMark 9 Beta so its not the version. I'm in the 100th percentile for every other category except 3D. Anyone have any idea of what could be causing this? I'll attach a photo of my clock speeds and bench results.
  9. Radio frequency interference, it'll kill the clarity.

    CPU Cooler

    You don't need to be afraid of water cooling, you should look at getting a h80i or something similar, you'll be better off in the long run.
  11. Make sure you have drapes or something over your windows, and that there is as little light pollution as possible, eliminating any possible RFI.
  12. I absolutely love the bolt, its such a cool build, I think I'm going to get some cablemod cables for my build. On another note, another Michigander!
  13. No and that's why we're all annoyed, check out my and the other guys build...
