    Hi.
    If all goes well I could be buying a 989 this week.
    I down loaded the manual a while back and have read it a few times.But....
    Is there anyones brain I can pick when I get stuck?
    Also are you happy with your machine?
    Thanks
    Gary

    Just bought one, ex demo but fully upgraded to latest software (V2.07) which provides:-

    DTS-ES Discrete 6.1
    DTS-ES Matrix 6.1
    DTS Neo:6
    Dolby Pro Logic II
    96kHz/24bit upsampling for analog sound. (Whatever that is!!)

    But most important to me, extension to A/V Sync. function provides adjustable delay from 0 to 120ms.

    There is however a forthcoming update to THX Ultra 2, which is I believe a Hardware mod., but not yet available in UK.

    Will report when it's all up and running.

    Hi.
    I am guessing this was Vic,s unit.
    I phoned the guys at Stratford about an hour after you
    asking about the upgrade.They thought I was you phoning back.
    You beat me too it by a few days,but I had my chance I guess.
    Good luck
    Gary

    Hi,

    Yes it is.

    Phoned him a week or two back as soon as his ad came out. Told him I would definitely buy it and have been waiting ever since for the upgrade to be done.

    I had no idea that he was talking to anyone else about it, as I offered his full asking price and as far as I was concerned it was a done deal weeks ago. Having said that, he did say today when we met to exchange goods for cash, that if I wanted to change my mind he had someone else who was very interested.

    Sorry you lost out, I feel a bit bad posting now, rather like rubbing salt in the wound but I had no idea that you were talking about the same amp, since as far as I was concerned the deal was done weeks ago and the amp was off the market.

    Hope you find one soon.

    Best regards.
