The AVR390 also has a different transformer to the AVR550 and 850, but since I'm using it just as a processor I really doubt I'd be able to hear any difference between the 390, 550 or 850 when used...

My dealer reckoned that the update will happen by the time I've finished my room, but then he knows how long I can take so that's not a great guide. :o I think he was implying by Christmas, if not...
