Denon Announces Early 2016 Release of DTS:X Firmware Update for Network A/V Receivers
Home entertainment product manufacturer, Denon, has announced the release of the DTS:X firmware update for early next year. The update will be free-of-charge to the first line of Network A/V Receivers. The AVR-X7200WA, AVR-X7200W, AVR-X6200W and AVR-X4200W will be the first models to get the firmware update granting them full DTS:X capability. After updating the firmware, all three A/V receivers will be able to run an Audyssey room-equalized DTS:X setup of up to 9.2 or even 11.2 channels.
DTS:X technology aims to adapt the audio to the speaker layout that best fits the individual space by transporting sound objects to and through specific locations within the viewing environment – in front of, behind, above and beside the audience.
“The addition of DTS:X immersive audio will absolutely captivate Denon customers with its ability to simulate the real-world environment where sound is above, behind and in front of the viewer,” Brian Towne, executive vice president, DTS, president DTS Asia Pacific, said in a statement. “With a growing catalog of top Blu-ray titles and other content incorporating DTS:X, the home entertainment experience will never be the same.”
