After thinking about how unintuitive our receivers are, and how the product line has not really changed much in the last 10 years in terms of usability and modern-ness, I decided I would love it if Apple would release a receiver either themselves or partner with a leading manufacturer to design the user interface at the very least. I'm at the point where I need more HDMI ins as I've been experiencing problems with the HDMI ports on my Denon 3000 series. And looking at available options, there's nothing really out there that stands out to me as an actual revolutionary, as opposed to evolutionary upgrade.
Why should we settle for the same old same old in our receivers? and why do they have to be so bulky for folks to use? With Apple diving further into Apple TV, do you think there might be an Apple Receiver at all? There does seem to be a greater trend towards home automation, but there are just no rubrick with all the different standards out there.
