    I heard that the Denon A1SE will be able to get a software update to enable DPL II and possibly the new DTS format. Will this be possible for the 3801?

    AFAIK there are no plans to offer software upgrades to the Denon 3801. You can confirm this by looking to see if it has an RS232 port on the backpanel. For a software upgrade this is the most common means of administration. I seem to recall that the 3801 doesn't have an RS232.

    Perhaps someone else can confirm this...Mark??

    But then at £650 ish who cares? an upgrade is a far less painful decision. For those who have spent £2000+ on the big Denon it would come as a real kick in the teeth if ALL the emerging formats were not to be offeredvia software upgrade and given Denon's track record this IS a distinct possibility (DP2 being the most likely exception)

    In the interview with Denon Dave on the AVS website, he confirmed that a software upgrade for the 3801 would not occur.
    Sorry. :(
