Do you really price match?
We will match any e-Commerce (Online store) Authorized USA Dealer's advertised price. Please call us toll free (877) 370-1972 and alert us to where you found the product cheaper. We will verify, and if the site is an Authorized US Dealer- we will match their price. However, if the price is below the manufacturer Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)- we will have to get authorization to match the price. We will not violate our signed agreements that we have with our vendors.
What about price matching from an auction site?
We do not price match any auction or "grey market" site.
Be advised, any purchases from an auction or unauthorized (grey market) websites can lead to future issues in regards to warranty or support. Most manufacturers will not honor any claims or warranty from these type of sales. Spend your money wisely by purchasing from an Authorized Dealer. In a lot of cases, saving a little bit of money can cost you more after the sale is completed.

Transformative Engineering - HDS-42AVR - HDMI Switcher
With the advent of the newest Ultra High Definition (“4K”) displays and sources, the latest version of High Definition Copyright Protection (“HDCP”) management was unveiled. For those end-users who have an older, non-HDCP2.2 compliant video/audio processor or receiver, this presents a major problem. In order to take full advantage of the video capabilities of a new 4K display and to hear all of the high-level HDMI-only Surround Sound formats such as Dolby True HD and DTS-Master, the only solution until now would be to replace the older Audio/Video Processor with a new version that is HDCP 2.2 compatible. In smaller systems, that is not a major issue. In larger, audiophile grade installations, replacing a very expensive processor with another very expensive processor is not always an option.
The HDS-42AVR solves this by allowing four HDCP 2.2/ full 4K sources to be switched and sent directly to the display, while directing any and all available HDMI Audio streams to the Surround Decoder. The HDS-42AVR handles all full 4K formats including 60Hz refresh rate at 4:4:4 color space for a full 18.2Gbps bandwidth. The Audio‑Only HDMI port is managed as a HDCP 1.4 source with a 720p MUTED video, in order to conform with anti-copy rules. For the installer, Transformative Engineering has included the ability to integrate the operation of the HDS-42AVR via IR (with an included IR Remote and pickup) or via RS232. As with all Transformative Engineering products, we have created a solution in an effective, innovative and reliable way.
