Until electronics are made simpler and more intuitive, not yet. I could not have an AVR and surround sound etc in my living room without it, or another form of automation. The fact the rest just works also makes for massive spouse approval. C4 are adapting. The lower cost controller for new build contractor installs for example. When / then roll out to the end user, composer home, adding cloud media sources. It seems to be their roadmap. Not sure they will ever get to that on switching out an AVR or multi room amp, but I could see straight device swaps (endpoint tvs or simple sources) on this roadmap soon.
