I believe the 200 has a USB DAC at 24/192 but no room correction. I have never used room correction on any of my equipment as I never liked what it did. I don't own a PC and can't setup ARC anyway on the Anthem, and I'm not going to buy Bootcamp.

Looking at the pictures of the rear of the CXR200 I don't see a USB Type B port which is why I said there is no USB port for PC ASIO music interface. Interesting that your Revel speakers don't work all that well with the CXR200. The ability to work well with all speaker types was a major strength of the Cambridge products. As such I still suggest you look at a 751R and pair it with either a 752bd, oppo bdp105 or the new CA CXN. Of course a PC (second hand notebook?) would open up a lot more connectivity options.

Sorry - my comments with the Revels is for the Anthem.

AH - there is a front USB port - which I assume is for an iPod. No USB in the back that I can see.

Thanks

CA 651r Firmware

Hello


I recently purchased a CA 651r and had problems with the BiAmp setup in direct mode with analogue inputs.
When I spoke to CA Support it turned out to be a known issue with the version of firmware on my receiver, but they could not send me the update file I would have to take the Reciever back to RS where I bought it for them to update it.
Spoke to RS and they cant do it while I wait so I would need to leave the reciever with them which I am not keen on.
I then came across this thread and noticed that the Firmware and instructions for updating had been shared on here between members previously.


Would anyone be kind enough to email a copy to me?
