I'm considering going to a 4K display sometime in the next year, probably a 75+" because our room setup dictates not less than about a 10' viewing distance. So it's going to cost some $$$. At first I thought my aging A/V receiver, a Yamaha RX-V1600, should be changed first since it's the switching hub of the whole outfit right now for two consoles and an HTPC. But looking at what has to be spent to maintain the current level of amplifier power necessary for our large open plan room has made me pause. Going that route will cut pretty far into the TV budget and/or make me wait longer to buy. Though an extra remote is not really welcome, I'm wondering about an external HDMI switch, one that will also break audio out separately. Most of the ones that pop up in searches look a bit cheesy though, so I'm leery to do this without hearing from someone with experience with them. Any ideas for me?
