    Has the cost to upgrade a base DC-1 changed at all over the years? I looked back a bit and the costs seem to be around $300 - $500 depending on what the DC-1 has already. Are these still the going rate?

    Assuming you don't want to change the flavor, $300 for the ROM from your dealer, $75 for the surface-mount chip replacement at Lexicon (this may only apply with DTS, my memory is a bit vague).

    If you want to go from AC-3 to DTS, $500 + $75.

    Base->AC-3/DTS will be prohibitively expensive, and AFAIK the 4.0 software only exists for AC-3 and DTS flavors so a THX/base upgrade is not possible.
