My AV8801 just notified me that there is a new firmware update available.
Before I load it - can someone tell me what the update improves? It will take about an hour to do and I just assume skip it unless the improvements are significant

Thanks

My guess is that it relates to this post.

There is a dedicated thread just for Marantz 8801 owners in which I list the changelog for the 8801 firmware updates in post #1 of that thread. The update includes a whole host of fixes.

Thanks - I see it now. I am updating as I type this. It does take the full 56 minutes. Download was quick, but the DSP/GUI update is chucking along.

I hope I don't have to re-run Audyssey !

If you review the last few posts in that 8801 thread, you'll note that Audyssey is not impacted, although always a good idea to have a backup completed via the Web Control feature (p. 106 OM) which would include the Audyssey configuration.
