Maybe there needs to be an 8 in the model #. (JK)
I sent the following message to Onkyo:
Subject PR-SC5508P related question from Onkyo PRO website
Comments: Can you please definitively confirm that the PR-SC5508P will be released as Audyssey Pro Installer-Ready without a future firmware upgrade.
The reason I ask is because your website initially indicated that the previous model, the PR-SC5507P, was Installer-Ready, but later the website was changed to remove that feature.
Here's the response:
