What are some good home theater system for under $700?
Currently I own Onkyo S3400, unfortunately it doesn't support HDCP 2.2. for 4k viewing.
Found S3900 for $299 at Best Buy. Any other brands worth considering? Denon, Yamaha?

Read some review about the same issue in this unit as well. It claims to support 4K HDR10, it doesn't based on another reviewer.



I think I might spend a little extra for a better unit.

My brand preference is Yamaha. I've had several over the years.

You will easily find "last years" model at a discounted price including refurbs. They are factory refurbs, as good as new. I have a refurb in my computer room, has been working well for years.

Here's one on newegg, 1yr warranty, the same as new.

I bought both of mine on ebay, one was slightly used, still working after 10 years, the other was a refurb.
