a dongle...a ******* dongle?

UK owners should contact 'Sound United' for a replacement under warranty. If they refuse...go spread the word on social media.

This bug in a chipset affected more producers, including Yamaha, IIRc. There is nothing wrong with a dongle sent free of charge to the customers. It can't be fixed by the simple firmware update. What would you expect? A recall of all of the receivers sold around the world?

Article mentions the number 7 on a fifth position in a serial number. Not sure it is related to the bug being fixed. What it relates to, though, is the change of the DACs, from AKM to some PCM ones, due to AKM factory being destroyed by fire. Some users worry about the sound signature, while Denon tries to assure us, that they have tweaked the sound to their standards. We will have to see, what further testing reveals.

I wish it came with more HDMI 2.1 ports though. Having only 1 port while paying thousands is disappointing.
