Hi Edd,

The two HDMI outputs are different specifications, one is HDMI 1.4, the other HDMI 2.0.
All the 7 inputs are HDMI 2.0

Thanks,

Rick

It amazes me sometimes that some may feel hard done by the cost of the upgrade by comparing it with cheaper available alternatives, yet at other times they may have justified their choices of high end products based on sometimes marginal sound quality improvements.

It's not the cost of the upgrade, it's not knowing what's coming next. That can be said for any manufacturer, but with Meridian it's become a little annoying over the past few years. When I bought into Meridian I knew they'd be among the first to bring new technology into my home. These days, they're years behind others. I'd happily buy the 722 for retail if they'd tell me I could still use with with a 861v10 or a new processor that supports the new formats and that such a processor is in the works, even if it takes them another two years or so to release it. But at this point I have to assume that when (if) a Meridian solution arrives one day, it might require to replace the 722 again, be it for decoding the new formats or simply pass through the bitstream via MMHR.

Given that 4k switching in an external box hooked up to an existing HD621 can be done for under £250, it might be the better temporary solution (again, we don't know if the 722 will have to be replaced "soon").
The fact that the 271 is available for the same price as the 722 with trade-in is tempting for those who want the new formats and it's probably what I'd do if I wanted the new formats right now and a Marantz processor isn't that expensive and would probably make a good temporary solution until Meridian comes up with a solution of their own. If that's not gonna happen, then any "cheap" processor can still be replaced by Trinnov/Datasat/whatever for a fully digital system.

Well said. I don't understand why they can't at this crucial (it seems to me) juncture, share some information about their intentions. At the moment it's anyone's guess whether they will be in the processor market at all after the 861v8.

No information on the HDMI version, costs are stated earlier in this thread, £2000 less £500 trade in for HD621 if you chose to.

Quick question... I haven't updated MConfig in *many* years as it works "as is" with all my existing kit. I'm assuming I'll have to update though if I want to use the 722, but am wondering whether this will break my setup?!

Hi Mark

Yes you will have to update it, can you download the latest version onto a different Windows PC and then try to open your current config file with it?

I am very chocked by the price tag requested for the UHD722 vs the functions it delivers... HDMI 2.0 not 2.1.

I really don t know what to do with my Meridian system, I feel abandoned by Meridian, I spent sooooo much money, and honestly not benefiting a lot from it.

That is my whining time ... but discovering the price tag of 2000 pounds for a simple HDMI switch... wow!
