    One drawback is that it only has HDMI v1.1, the current version is 1.3.

    The biggest drawbacks of 1.1 are that it won't decode Dolby TrueHD or DTS HD Master Audio. This means that you need a player capable of decoding them, which isn't necessarily a problem if you have a player the decodes them. Also HDMI 1.3 supports Deep Color, which at this point probably isn't a big issue, but could be more so in the future. HDMI 1.1 is only capable of sending 24 bit color, where as with 1.3 and deep color, you can get 36 bit, 48 bit and even higher I believe. There aren't many Blu-rays that even take advantage of that currently, but there will be in the future I'd imagine. Also you need at least HDMI version 1.2 to send SACD over HDMI, which may not be a problem for everyone either.

    You might want to look into an Onkyo 805.
