    It's now Sept of 2007 is this still avail? Can the people that had this done comment on how do the like the AV8Upgrade unit?

    From what I read in this forum this is what it entailed:

    HDMI capability added
    Complete stripdown of the unit
    New cables added
    Brand new AV9 front and rear panels

    Hi,

    Yes the AV8 to AV9 upgrade is still available. it includes all the items you have described + some improved sound quality treatments.

    Since I am biased I won't comment on sound quality etc.

    Regards,
    Andrew

    :hiya:As regards the hdmi compatibility upgrade does this in any way refer to the hd sound formats ie. can dolby true hd and dts hd master be sent over hdmi. If not will there be such an upgrade in the near future so i won't need to replace my av8 and p7? thanks.

    Hi Dreamer,

    Cool question that leads me to another one : will there be an upgrade to HDMI 1.3 for the AVP700 ? That would be quite cool... Of course if the upgrade isn't offered for 75% of the price of a new AVP800 (or whatever the name of the AVP700 successor will be...).

    Regards.

    The AV8 to AV9 upgrade provides HDMI switching only no decoding of HDMI audio is included.

    Im sorry I can't comment on future products or upgrades.

    Regards,
