Does anyone know the future upgrade path of the AVC A1SE either firmware (through the RS-232c connector) of through the proposed Firewire DSP board & digital jack. Does this mean that an element of futureproofing has been built into the design (flash memory etc) that may allow for future extensions/developments in sound formats (eg DTS X.1, XX.i, ES etc)? (I was a I knats whisker away from buying the AV10 SE until I heard the 1SE demoed along side it.) Also I currently have a bolt on processor (obselete) for surround decoding leaving my Arcam Alpha 10 free standing for Hifi listening. Would I have to lose the Arcam and replace with the 1SE (Hifi amp quality questions & reservations) or can the 1SE be setup/programed to switch in and out as required? Or would I have to hard wire the speakers to both (ensuring they were never turned on at the same time). Answers on a post card to...
