#04 Will it be possible to stream films to the MP-40 2.1?

No, the MP-40 2.1 does not feature a video media player, so you need to stream to the television and have the audio extracted by the television like with a normal TV show.


#03 Is the MP-40 able to handle HDMI 2.1?

The MP-40 was introduced in 2020 with HDMI 2.0, which already supports eARC and allows to connect a 8K video source directly to the television, while having the full audio signal extracted by the television and sent to the MP-40 through the HDMI cable. Since early 2022 the MP-40 2.1 is available with HDMI 2.1, allowing pass through of 8K video signals. This limits the MP-40 to 3 x HDMI 2.1 inputs, while extending to 2 x HDMI 2.1 outputs. For a limited time, Lyngdorf Audio offers to upgrade an existing MP-40 with the new HDMI 2.1 boards.
