    I was surprised to notice, while checking out the (otherwise excellent) "sticky" thread at the top of the forum about Arcam software versions, that there's no mention of the transport firmware used in Arcam DVD players. This is distinct from the "software" - version numbers are of the form LT75, LT76, etc. If I understand correctly, it's firmware that's flashed directly into the DVD-ROM drive rather than controlling the player as a whole. I would have added this comment into the "sticky" thread itself, but apparently I'm not allowedto :rolleyes: so I'll post it here instead. :)

    Could we have a breakdown of the latest "mech" firmware versions, and a list of what (if anything) changed between versions?

    I would also be quite interested to know what the different models of transport used in Arcam DVD players are (I know there are 3 or 4) and what the practical differences between them are.

    I believe LT76 is the latest and the only change I can remember is that it allowed you to play a celine dion cd! which was copy protected.. waste of a update if you ask me :)

    Some older DV27 players don't use an LT mech at all, IIRC. What about them? I'd also like to hear about the differences between LT models A, B and C. :)
