How Lexicon will support TrueHD/DTS-HD decoding? Firmware upgrading for MC-12 HD or release one new model?

Can't be done with a firmware upgrade, since it would require newer DSP chips (with the advanced audio codecs) and newer HDMI connectivity (to accept undecoded bitstreams), so it will likely be a new model.
Their current flagship is based on a platform that's over 7 years old, so it's high time for a replacement. Until then, if you're using a player that can decode the new codecs, they can be transmitted to the MC-12HD as PCM.

I think the audio codecs is some kinds of embedded software that built in the chips. Maybe we can upgrade the codecs by refreshing the software.
