Denon has just confirmed the availability of a hardware upgrade for their AVR- X7200W flagship Network AV Receiver. DENON-AVR-X7200W_BK_E2-rightCurrent owners of this AVR will now be able to upgrade their unit to support future-proof HDCP 2.2 copy protection protocol, needed for copy-protected 4k Ultra-HD content playback. The upgrade, which requires hardware modification at an authorized Denon Service Centre, will start in May. The cost for this upgrade will be EUR 199. At the same time, Denon starts replacing the AVR-X7200W (SRP: EUR 2.799) with the AVR-X7200WA (SRP: EUR 2.999), which is already factory-upgraded with the above new features.

Customers who wish to perform the HDCP 2.2 upgrade to transform their AVR-X7200W into an AVR-X7200WA should get in contact with their Denon retailer. For the owners of either AVR-X7200W or AVR-X7200WA, the Auro-3D software upgrade will continue to be available via Denon.

On a different note, Denon also shared a plan to offer a software update to bring new DTS:X immersive surround sound format to the AVR-X7200W and the AVR-X7200WA later this year. Details will be revealed when the time approaches.
