I am happy enough with my NAD T763 for now, so no need to upgrade right away. But I was curious as to what new technologies a new receiver should have to make it relatively "future proof" for the next gen of HD players. I'm talking about a receiver that would be released within the next 6-18 months, assuming HD-DVD and Blu Ray are released by then. Here's my stab in the dark at it, given I've been out of the receiver (and hardware in general) game for a couple of years: 1. HDMI switching with the ability to pass 1080p 2. Next gen Dolby and DTS codec (what was this called? DD+? DTS+?) 3. Apple iPod interface/control (this is important to me ) 4. iLink? (not sure about this) Anything else?
