My point was that it does not state if it is HDMI 2.0 or HDMI 2.0a.
And that Yamaha "technical support" has been wrong - more than once.
It does however state" "The YSP-5600 supports the latest HDMI standards."
The "latest HDMI standard" is HDMI 2.0a.
So, like I said, who knows - it may have 2.0a and it may not.
I wouldn't rely solely on Yamaha's "technical support"
Just my two cents.

All HDMI 2.0 will have HDCP 2.2, however not all HDMI 2.0 devices can handle up to 18gbs some only handle up to 10.2gbs.  HDMI 2.0a is needed for HDR. The 5600 spec do not say it is HDMI 2.0a so I doubt it will work for HDR but should work for basic 4K.

Hello to all YSP-5600 lovers. I am buying this one too, but I am little concerned about our living room - especially the furniture inside it. Some images attached for better picture. Do you think is it suitable? The projector would be placed undet the TV.
Thanks for any advice.

I think it will work pretty good in your room, but I am not sure I would give up a nice pair of book shelf speakers to go to a sound bar.  The surround effects will be better but not necessarily the sound quality. I'd be more likely to add a sub for the book shelf speakers if you don't have one.

I think it would NOT work good in this room. For example, if a beam uses the back of the office chair your side surround would be gone when the chair is turned a bit. Large and flat reflective walls are mandatory for this to work.

I noticed today that Amazon now lists this soundbar as preorder, with no estimated delivery date. The cutoff for Amazon is 30 days, so someone at Yamaha clearly thinks it will be ready in less time than that.
I am disappointed that it appears in the US market, at least, that they are not selling a bundle with the subwoofer. After adding all the separately-priced items like the subwoofer, wireless subwoofer kit, and wall-mounting bracket, the price on this item jumps rather sharply.
I think I'm still going to take the plunge, despite my mostly missing third wall, because I simply have no room whatsoever for even bookshelf speakers in that room. Basically, anything other than a soundbar is going to make my den look like I jammed things into it, and that just isn't going to fly, especially since it is the first thing anyone who enters my front door sees. The bonus room? That I can take a few liberties with, but not this one.
And, there is an advantage to no bundled subwoofer. I have my eye on a much larger one from Polk that should work very well with the wireless kit. Yamaha would have done well to bundle them at a reduced price. If they had done so, they would probably have sold me that too.
