    I'm just curious as to the amount of owners that are considering the upgrade. £600 is a lot of money but this upgrade truly would place the flagship back to the top.

    I'll start the ball rolling by saying that I wasn't going to until I read the specifications of the upgrade. Now I'm 90% sure I will.

    Yes. Most definitely.

    I think its a very comprehensive upgrade and well worth the money, as it will take our amps back up to the level of the new 5803/A1SR.

    It would be nice if HCC could do a review of the upgraded machine compareing it to a non upgraded model.

    As my AVC-A1SE will possibly have to do me for a good few years, I will definitely have the upgrade done. I don't know what 70% of the things do, on my present machine, so what hope will I have with the upgraded one?:confused: Maybe the fact that I'll have the upgrade might persude some curious, fellow owner to come around and help me set it up?:p In fact I'd even be interested if some knowledgeable non-AVC-A1SE owner would pop round and help me set it up!! At present I have Minardi standard but I'm sure it's capable of Ferrari performance with proper tweaking.

    Here's the price in the USA quoted directly from the official US Denon site. "Upgrade to be performed ONLY by DENON Electronics Service • Includes one-way return shipping with new box and packing • Service Part KAVR5803E3 • Available February '02 • SRP $800" According to my Currency Convertor $800 = £557 therefore all things considered £600 is the ball park figure. Let's hope it's a bit less, at least £100 less! There are various things still not officially settled or announced concerning a replacement front flap and the fact that the remote control's software will be upgraded at the same time. Denon UK should have their 'official' specs pn their site this coming week but post probably won't have pricing, logistics, exact shipping procedures regarding turnaround time and othere minor details just yet. Apart from anything the upgrade boards are still in Japan!

    Regards

    Jim :rolleyes:
