I can't help much the other questions but the mAmp uses third gen ICEpower modules. The SX used the 2nd gen.

Go for the third gen. Much better.

Does that mean for countries where the upgrade to 8802A is not free, you won't get DTSX?

I believe Atmos in the cinemas is speaker agnostic but not in the current home implementation.

I see that as good news :) but I'm not sure this spells anything good for the firm in the long run.

That would have been epic. I could have bought another MCS1 and delegated my MCS1 with the new one for surround duties

I vaguely recall being able to turn on an Airplay compatible device using an iOS or iTunes machine. And Network Radio is usually shared with Airplay.

It's not a crossover really.

The speakers run full range - so the PX05/2 does not muck up the phase/response of the internal crossovers.

But Thiel KNOWS the frequency response of your speakers,...

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.

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

More likely a software issue.

I have TMT5 and TMT6 installed in my system.
