Yes there will be a board, the question of course is how much.
But it's fun to enjoy something new... so when will you bite bro, you are the king here of new tech :)

My pocket not that "deep"...but you can rest assured that if I ever bought it, I will thoroughly test it...be it the different speaker layout, combo, 13.1 channel built-in amplification, the return of the "wides" speaker layout to complement Object-based listening as well as the Audyssey app...:P

The 8802 Digital board is using 4x DSP, which occupy too much of the PCB real estate, while 8805 and 8500 uses 2 DSP. Thats why you noticed that the board is smaller.

Boss Desray, you do not need deep pockets for the 8500, recently i let go one of my 2  Denon x7200WA at S$1700,sell your X7200 and buy the 8500H. ;D

So you are using 8500 huh?
When I do comparison, the processors/HDMI main board of 8500 seems smaller size compare to 8802A.
Silent killer is coming out soon .... 8805 ... 8805A

I wonder how it (8500) sounds compare to my Marantz 8802A... wont mind to pay you a visit bro ?
Price of 8802A was about the same price as 8500 too even though there is no built in amp at all.
 ;D




Work in progress bro, but if you dont mind, and you are near Hougang, you can have a go! ;D
If you have S$6000 now, the AV8805 is yours! ;D

Boss sdds, S150T for side surround, SUR95T for front height and  rear top. Sub temporarily using KK 808, swapping for M&K X12 or Arendal Sub3.
