    Been on the Denon uk website recently. It makes reference to the A11SR but no picture of specs.

    I went to a German site and there it was. Could not understand it but it was a THX rated amplifier with DPII.

    Regards

    I take is that is in favour of the A11SR looking at the spec.

    Thanks<br />Luke

    It'll now be full steam ahead for the AVC-A2SE then won't it - there may even be a power increase from 170watts. I also heard that DENON are working on a processor version (i.e. without the power amps on board). My just be hot air though.<br />Mark

    The 'replacement' for the AVC-A1SE may be further away than you might imagine, as a substantial uprade is on the cards for later this year/early 2002. Officially this will include the following:-<br />Dolby Pro Logic ll<br />DTS 96/24<br />DTS ES Discrete 6.1 + THX post processing<br />Dolby Headphone decoding<br />Panja and Creston control capability<br />Adjustable cross-over switching 80/100/120 Hz<br />On Screen Volume control ( master volume )

    I'd imagine that all brand new AVC-A1SE's bought in early 2002 will have these modifications fitted as standard and a 'replacement' might possibly happen towards the very end of 2002.

    Jim,<br />Yes I'm aware of the upgrade – I've had my photocopied memo from Hayden Labs outlining what you've written above, it's just that looking over the specs for the A11SR there does not seem much between them. I would imagine that a unit that is THX Ultra2 certified would increase the gap.<br />Anyway I'm dreaming because I'm stuck with my AVC-A1SE, but I'll go for the upgrade I think. What about you?<br />Mark

    Mark, I certainly can't afford to change my AVC-A1SE (only bought it in June) so I'll just go with the upgrade and make do. It's not going to be cheap either but I suppose I can do without THX Ultra 2 at a pinch; I'll have to!

    Regards

    Though the AVC-11SR includes THX Ultra2 features it is not THX Ultra2 certified.

    Just thought I let you know ...

    As you said Jim, there will probably be no difference between the AVC-A1SR and an upgraded AVC-A1SE.
    I'll go for the upgrade although I'm a bit upset that the new dts 96/24 system is 5.1 and not 6.1. We can't have everything I suppose.

    I'll take the upgrade for my AVCA1SE when they are ready but after that I wont buy another Denon. I'm fed up with getting the rug pulled out from under me every time I thought I bought a flagship machine.
    I've allready started saving for an Lex MC12 and Cinepro amps.
    In 18 months time, bye bye Denon.

    Sure, no problem. The Cinepro amps are good for 400 watts into 8 ohm. Although my M&K 150's are rated at 400 watts max (into 4 ohms) lets hope they can handle this sort of power.
    Bring very thick ear defenders anyway.

    As the distributors for both M&K and Cinepro, we've had a good play with the 3K6 with S150's. Awesome! The speakers handle the power fine. (with a 4 ohm load the amp produces over 650watt per channel!!)

    I even tried the amp at home on a pair of S85's. Absolutely stunning.
