At CES in Las Vegas today Denon announced it will offer its existing customers the opportunity to experience enhanced audio performance that goes “beyond 5.1-channel surround sound” with an advanced Audyssey DSX Firmware Upgrade on specific models. Starting on February 1, 2010, the upgrade for Audyssey DSX, a surround sound technology that adds height or expanded width channels, will be available for $100 via Denon’s website to owners of the company’s AVR-3310CI and AVR-990 A/V receivers. With the addition of the Audyssey DSX feature in the upgraded AVR-3310CI and AVR-990, Denon now makes this advanced feature available in four of its A/V receivers, also including the AVR-4810CI and AVR-4310CI.
Customers who purchase the Audyssey DSX upgrade will also receive a valuable coupon good towards a purchase at the Denon Shop website (https://usa.denon.com/shop/).
Jeff Talmadge, Director, Product Development & Systems Integration, Denon Electronics, noted, “We are very excited to be able to bring Audyssey DSX to our existing customers via a downloadable firmware upgrade. For a $100 fee, our customers can dramatically enhance the quality of their listening experience, without having to go out and buy a brand new receiver. This is yet another example of how Denon is committed to ensuring that our customers are ‘future ready’ and remain at the leading edge of all the latest performance-enhancing technologies.”
