I'd say nay, because I never use DSP modes.

However, I have some more I'd like to add. From a company standpoint, it might be better to add them. I doubt you'd lose a customer because you added a few extra features. However, someone may decide that these DSP modes are a necessity and buy something else. (I don't know who would be so silly, but it's more apt to happen than someone refusing to buy because of the DSP modes).

If I was going to add them, I'd put them all under a single sub-menu somewhere deep within the menu system. Set it up so those of us who don't like and don't use them, while browsing the menu system only come across one entry - "DSP Modes" - rather than having to skip past each individual mode. If we want to use DSP modes we can choose to enter that sub menu and select a mode. If not, it's only one extra button press to ignore them. This eliminates hassle for people like me, but keeps the feature in for people who use it. Just make sure you default it to OFF...

I would have to say nay. I have owned a Yamaha receiver in the past, and I thought the DSP's for music and movies were pretty cool when I bought it. I used them for about a month and never turned them on again. They're nice to play with, and make nice ad copy, but they aren't really worth much. Especially with DPL II and DTS Neo around.

Although I never use other DSP modes, I don't see any reason to not include them if there are potential customers out there who appreciate them. As long as it is a no cost "perk" I say thumbs up.

A definite thumbs up for Dolby Pro-Logic II and thumbs down on the DSP modes.

From your standpoint, if you can include them at now cost, why not? If it sells a couple more units all the better. I don't think you would loose any sales if they weren't there.

I feel Dsp modes are a great feature for an upsell, I never have found them all that usefull. Having owned a few "High End Receivers" (Yamaha, Denon, B&K) Currently
I am using a B&K Ref 20 since april of 2000
and I'm still wrestling with going back to my Nakamichi Ca1 (Superb 2 Channel no DTS minimal bass management). So added frills for sacrifice of audio reproduction hmmm... what's the point? Having said that the level we of sound quality that is available at an affordable price, it's a no brainer,I
feel my comments are pertinent no matter anyone's Audio/Home Theatre ratio as well as a venture into DVD-A/SACD.....

Unless you want to consider Circle Surround (not really a DSP) because there are some CS encoded CDs out there, I suggest you just stick with PLII in both its versions (movie/music). However, if its possible to make the unit software upgradeable to new DSPs that may come along I guess that would work.
