Denon Announces Major Hardware and Firmware Upgrade

February 22, 2011 By Home Entertainment Editorial Staff



3Di Pass-Through, Audyssey and Dolby Upgrades Added

 

Denon Electronics is offering owners of its flagship AVR-5308CI A/V receiver and AVP-A1HDCI MultiMedia preamplifier a major hardware and firmware upgrade that will provide full 3D pass-through capability, as well as Audyssey MultEQ XT32, Audyssey DSX and Dolby PLIIz.

 

"We are very excited to bring these leading-edge features to owners of our flagship products, noted Jeff Talmadge, Director, Product Development & Systems Integration, Denon Electronics. "Early adopters who purchased these components nearly 4 years ago bought them with the confidence that they would experience the very best home entertainment for years to come. This upgrade opportunity is yet another example of how Denon is committed to ensuring that our customers are ‘future ready' and remain at the leading edge of all the latest performance-enhancing technologies."

In addition to full 3D pass-through capability, which will allow AVR-5308CI A/V and AVP-A1HDCI owners to enjoy the growing roster of 3D movies now becoming available, the firmware upgrade includes Dolby Pro Logic IIz decoding for enhanced audio experience of front height channels. For an even more dramatic surround sound experience, Denon owners will be able to take advantage of Audyssey DSX with left and right height and width channels - synthesizing audio signals for new surround channels based on human perception and acoustical research. The result is a much more realistic and "present" soundscape, with more audio depth.

The firmware upgrade also features Audyssey's advanced MultEQ XT32 room acoustic correction system, which features a microphone (included) to automatically measure the speaker configuration and provide acoustic tailoring for the best surround sound experience.

The upgrade is scheduled for October. For more information on Denon upgrades, click here:
