that's exactly what I meant. The xx30 generation is not firmware unlockable (because there is nothing to be unlocked) whereas the xx40 generation can be unlocked because the hardware is already there. The firmware is just to unlock the capabilities of the chip inside.

Just got confirmation again that Yamaha will announce their Auro 3D firmware upgrade in December 2014! No word yet on any technical details.
It looks like the upgrade will only be available for the RX3040 and not for any other units including CX-A5000!

Ouch! Another for A5000 owners.

I guess the 2040 misses out because it doesn't support 11 channels.

Edit: But then again Denon are adding Auro 3D to their X4100W which only supports 9 channels like the 2040.

Haven't posted here for a long time, but I had to come and say, this A5000 is just many users also, I've had countless pre pros and amps in my days, this A5000 is the best I've ever's so clear and detailed..I couldn't imagine what a better sounding pre would sound like..
