That's what I fell in love with.

Even on the CS1.6, the bass control was just spectacular. I was so addicted, I ended up getting a CS2.4SE that was more than what I wanted to pay :)

The upgrade might be for a short timeframe only. Like it was for the 3D upgrade on the old Denon A1HDC.

Plus the 8802 is likely to have a 3 plus year timeframe based on the 8801. Maybe more if...

I was told $350 for the upgrade. But no confirmation on DTSX.

How much are you guys paying for the 8802 in Australia?

It's just the way Marantz and Denon "defines" speakers. Small doesn't mean Small - it just means not working in full range and will get the bass augmented through subwoofers. See? shorter to call it...

It was $50 for a sub $1k Marantz NA7004.

$199 for a $4k Marantz AV8802.

Seriously?

More likely a software issue.

I have TMT5 and TMT6 installed in my system.

When I set the audio to bitstream HD audio, I get no sound with TMT5 but the same disc playback HD audio just fine.

Neither do I.

I did mention the dealers are paying MORE for the unit than what they are selling the unit for in Singapore. To end customers.

Not quite.

I think the dealer has to pay GST on the goods he gets from distributor but he gets to claim that against the government.

He does slap on the 10% on the final price of the goods he...

The guy I spoke to didn't even know about the HDCP upgrade much less the pricing :)

I think A$6500 was what I heard. It might have been 5999 when it was first announced last year around August?
