Marantz DTS:X upgrade
I just contacted customer support to ask about the DTS:X upgrade for my Marantz 1606 slimline receiver. All I got back was a vague maybe it'll be released "mid-2016."
Ugh! Frustrating. This DTS:X roll out has been a cluster-cuss.

Particularly frustrating because when X finally does arrive via firmware upgrade, it works well... but is the exact same thing Atmos did from day one two years ago.* Also, does your 1606 only offer Dolby Surround for Dolby codecs and PCM, or will it upmix DTS stuff as well? The Denon X6200W has split up-mixing duties.
(*All mixes depend on individual filmmakers for effectiveness, and I stillneed to do more DSU vs Neural:X comparisons.)

Basically same thing with Pioneer's SC-95/97/99 receivers. I thought long and hard about becoming an early investor in one of these DTS:X receivers but am so glad I didn't. By the time they get a DTS:X firmware update, hopefully they'll come down in price a few hundred dollars.
