    Another DHT550SD thread ... :boring: ... but ...

    I hear that denon will be releasing an updated version of the DHT500SD - anyone know anything about it?

    Is it worth waiting for?

    Cheers :)

    sneaky bastards, i asked if they were updating or replacing the 500sd about a month ago, purely on the basis i am wanting a hdmi equipped machine, but not willing to pay flagship prices 4k!!
    the reply i got was that the 500sd was incapable of having hdmi connectivity and denon had no intentions of bringing a new machine out

    low and behold.................. 2 new bits of kit-

    whether they have hdmi is anyone's guess but it looks like the s101 is a simplistic 2.1 system, whether it intends to replace the dmv 51 i dony know

    searched the web absolutely nothing to b found on these forthcoming products, any industry insiders wishing to divulge?

    fudge me, have you seen the price of those things!!! i suppose i wouldnt mind paying $1000 for the s-101 if it had the same features and was just a 2.1 system but an extra $600 dollars for another 3 speakers.

    hopeflly we will get to know more imminently-!

    from what i could fathom the s-301 had the ability to play dvd audio, but what interests me most is the ability to upscale to 1080i and the hdmi connectivity- i really dont mind paying more if i know I have got a relatively future proof system- reason being I have about £1k to spend now before i buy a house and get married - and i sure aint gonna have that kind of cash after that!!

    have denon ever brought any turkey items out- that dmv51 appeared to be a bit of a white elephant for them.
    just dont want to spend my cash and find out I have bought a bag of *****
