The Denon X1400H and X2400H units arrived today into our warehouse.  Call for pricing and feature questions to determine which model best fits your requirements.

These models are the upgrades to the S730H and S930H respectively and include an extra year of warranty, Zone 2 pre-outs (required if you want to run 7.1 + Zone 2), and also the better version of Audyssey MultEQ XT.

The latest firmware update to the HEOS app now allows for Network Sharing in which you can stream audio from a PC, MAC, or NAS Drive to HEOS speakers or to one of these new "H" series AVR models.  :)

Do this year's models include Dolby Vision pass through or will they get it in a firmware update?   Will the 2016 x6300h get a DV firmware update?

I assume this year's models won't be upgradable to HDMI 2.1 when it is finalized.

It could be a couple of years away.

1.  Yes, however, the HLG update will come via firmware later this year.
2.  Yes, the 2016 models will get both the DV + HLG updates via firmware later this year.
3.  Correct.  HDMI 2.1 is a hardware upgrade which also requires a new HDMI cable as well.  We won't see HDMI 2.1 AVRs until the 2018 models are released.

The new DTS Virtual:X firmware update should be released this month for the X3400H and lower models.  This features simulates height audio when there are no height speakers configured when playing DTS audio.  The X4400H/X6400H aren't scheduled to get the update until next spring.

AVScience is currently in negotiation with Auro Technologies to purchase a bulk order of Auro 3D Demo Discs Vol 2. Once received (which may be awhile as they are currently out of stock), we will provide a disc free of charge to all customers who have already purchased or plan on purchasing a 2017 Auro 3D capable Denon/Marantz model (ie. X4400H/X6400H/8500H) from AV Science.

Question about Heos.

So currently I am able to use the Heos App on my iOS device to control streaming music from tunein and other supported services on my x6400h feeding 7.2.2 speakers.

If I purchase wireless Heos Speakers and place them around the home, can I have my AVR and wireless Heos speakers playing the same music source simultaneously?

Do I control that from the Heos App?  Send to multiple Heos devices (AVR and wireless speakers)?  Or does the AVR output to the wireless speakers?

Also, any chance the Sonos lawsuit will result in Denon abandoning Heos and leave us with unusable Heos speakers?

Yes.  The AVR is considered a HEOS speaker as well and could be grouped with other HEOS speakers in the home to play the same audio.  You would do so from the HEOS app.  You can also stream 2CH sources connected to the AVR to the HEOS speakers as well, again using the app.

Unknown as to what will happen as a result of the Sonos lawsuit, although likely a payment of royalties to Sonos.
