Denon, Marantz, Sony, Trinnov and Yamaha have delivered DTS:X to many of their AVR models via firmware updates. Throughout the year, several brands, including Acurus, Anthem, ARCAM, Integra, Krell, McIntosh, Onkyo, Outlaw Audio, Pioneer, Steinway Lyngdorf and Theta Digital/ATI will release DTS:X firmware updates to their AVRs.
