Reference the £2,500 Onkyo TX-DS989, I copied the item below from the Onkyo site after reading the new copy of "What Video & TV" (out today, Thurs 3rd). In addition to what's written below, the magazine also states and I quote word for word "Owners of existing models can get the upgrade for free until the 31st of August from UK Onkyo service stations. After this date it will cost around £100. The RS 232 connection allows other current Onkyo products to be upgraded." Come on Denon, what are *you* waiting for??? It would appear that some companies actually support their loyal customers and others don't bother! Naturally I'm referring to the farce surrounding the upgrade for the Denon AVC-A1SE! Regards Jim <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> "Onkyo TX-DS989 upgrade ONKYO can now officially announce that the engineering and licensing for the eagerly awaited upgrade of the highly acclaimed ONKYO TX-DS989 Receiver is now successfully completed and TX-DS989 now shipped from the ONKYO warehouse will additionally to the given formats (Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby EX, DTS 5.1, THX Surround EX) be equipped with the new analog surround format DOLBY PRO LOGIC II, DTS 6.1 Discrete and DTS neo-6 is also provided. With this upgrade ONKYO now offers one of the first products on the market to be both THX Ultra certified and also able to reproduce ALL decoding standards. This is in keeping with the company's policy and promise, as announced last year, that the TX-DS989 will be upgradeable for future formats. Thanks to the RS-232 connection at the rear of the TX-DS989, existing TX-DS989's at the consumers or dealers can also be upgraded. The ONKYO service stations in each country will carry out the upgrade from July 2001 on. If you already own your 989 and would like to get the upgrade applied to your unit please contact your dealer or distributor (see "Distributors") respectively for detailed information on how to get the upgrade done."
