Another company has announced a release date for the DTS:X firmware update.
Joining Denon, Marantz has also announced a release window for the highly anticipated DTS:X firmware update. The new immersive audio format will be available on select Marantz AV products in February and March.
The 11.2 channel AV8802A Pre-Amp/Processor ($3,999) is expected to receive the firmware update starting on February 4. Meanwhile, the 7.2 channel SR6010 AV receiver ($1,399), the 9.2 channel SR7010 AV receiver ($2,199), and the 11.2 channel AV7702MK2 Preamp/Processor are expected to receive the firmware update starting on March 4. Like Dolby Atmos, DTS:X is an object-based surround sound audio technology that allows customers to add height speakers to create overhead audio. The current crop of DTS:X-enabled Blu-ray discs includes 'Ex Machina' and 'American Ultra,' and the upcoming releases of 'The Last Witch Hunter' and 'Crimson Peak.'
