So if the 800 and the 1000 have DV - the question is - what makes the 1000 $400 "better" than the 800
The x1000es has a few extra connection options (Optical Out, RGB out, RCA audio L/R out), removable power cord, 3 year warranty, and i believe a slightly better audio DAC but not sure on this one? Outside of that everything else is pretty much the same. Not worth an extra $400 IMO.
There was a post in the Receivers forum under the Sony STR-DN1080 thread where the following question was asked:
Sony customer service told me this when I asked about the STR-DN1080: According to their current support documentation available to their customer service/support team, there wasn't anything stating whether the STR-DN1080 would or could receive Dolby Vision support via a firmware update. Doesn't mean it can but also doesn't mean it can't.
They also told me this about their UBP-X800 UHD 4K player: they did have documentation in their system that states this player will be getting a firmware update to add Dolby Vision support.
If this is legit I would also expect it to apply to the x1000es as well.
