Good luck getting Auro3D to give their stuff away for free. It's an extra £200 on the cost of my Denon amp, so only a tiny fraction of users have paid for it. It's a moribund format (IMHO).

In the case of DTS:X it was not an "upgrade", it was part of the paid-for featureset, delivered LATE to customers due to circumstances beyond Denon's control. You'll see they call it an update not an upgrade."McIntosh is happy to announce the release of a free firmware update that brings full support for both DTS:X and Auro-3D object-based 3D audio to the MX122 A/V Processor."
£200 for a pure software upgrade!
So, it is weird that no fee is charged by Denon for DTS:X upgrade.
"Denon introduces DTS:X to selected AV Receivers. It just needs to be unlocked with a free-of-charge future firmware update."

"LG G6 is the first phone to debut Dolby Vision HDR. At its launch, the LG G6 will also be compatible with HDR 10.
LG's flagship phone delivers HDR-grade video content from Netflix and Amazon Video that Dolby promises will save on battery life and data consumption.
