Sure, Denon’s a pretty premium brand when it comes to entertainment, but how do they justify charging $60 for a firmware update for the N7 multimedia system that activates Apple’s Airplay streaming? If you don’t want to pay the fee, the company is running a promotion at the moment where new N7 purchases get the update for free.

Anyone who buys the N7 system between March 28 and June 30 this year from an authorised dealer can get the update for free, rather than forking over an extra $60.

Given that the system costs $999 to begin with, the $60 upgrade fee is pretty offensive. It would probably sway me from buying the product, regardless of the promotion. But you’re not me, and if you’ve been eyeing off this piece of kit, this might be enough to loosen your wallet.
