I believe that is incorrect Frank714, DTS:X is a "native" format such as Atmos or Auro3D. In fact, it is in direct competition with said formats. The Auro3D upgrade is available now and is $200 USD...

Spoke with a Magnolia Design Center manager here in Houston and he said they were not expecting the 65EC9700 until mid/late December. He is supposed to call me when they get it out on the floor.
