Unless you care about Atmos, or something beyond what your receiver is capable of, there really isn't a need to upgrade (again, unless you want to). Most every 4K player I know of has two direct HDMI outputs one for video the other for audio. You can run the HDMI video direct to your projector, and the other to your receiver for audio, and you are good to go. Before I purchased my Pioneer receiver, I was running my 4K discs audio through an old Onkyo receiver 3.1 configuration, and it sounded great as well.The hope is to upgrade the receiver next (I can tell from recent behavior that it’s going to be the first component in my system to go), and then the player as the next purchase after that. I’m thinking I might ask/hope for a new AVR for Father’s Day next year instead of the typical socket wrench set that seems to be the thing new dads are destined to be gifted.
