Yeah, you get the best of both worlds, as it were, in return for having sprung for last year's flagship unit. And IIRC you purchased an already upgraded X7200WA so you didn't have to endure the...

Good to have firm verification, but that sucks (temporarily) for you 2015 model owners. It's one thing to have to wait (until Sep/Oct/?) for the DTS:X/Neural:X update, but it's adding insult to...

I would assume that the license is specific to the unit and not the owner; IOW you can resell the AVR and Auro will continue to operate on it, but you as the original owner do not retain the license...

The BRD I watched (http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Kumiko-the-Treasure-Hunter-Blu-ray/126600/) was in Dolby TrueHD 5.1. Applying Dolby Surround upmixing for 7.1.4, the result was very, very good.

Keith, you and I are in the same boat in that we are in good fiddle with our X5200 for at least the next year or two. So in that sense whatever comes out this model year will probably not impact on...

I'm guessing you purchased a refurbished unit?

Otherwise, if that's what you paid for a brand new X5200 from an authorized reseller, I take my hat off to your bargain-hunting skills.

Neo:X does not accommodate 5.1.4 (+FW)!
