3.22 is available on the Sunfire site under the TGP-III. I have it downloaded but not installed yet.
It should sound like it isn't there!

Hey BillD

I know the UR Pre is a TG III but.....
Do you feel I would be taking a risk updating the UR 1 with it?
Just curious about that and whether any feature enhancements are included or bug fixes only.

I will download it tonight and wait to see what you find out when you try it

Thanks

I might get around to trying it this weekend if I can get out from under some projects.

Hi TN

I augmented the power with a Sunfire 300 and replaced a pair of NHT's with CRM-2s
Running 1 pair of JBL-100s and one pair of NHT's off of the UR
300x2 drives the CRM's

Likes that setup much better
Upgraded to 3.22
Still exhibits odd behavior which Bill from Rita's attributed to some shaky voltage to the logic on the Pre-amp
I can play a 7.1 configuration in party mode to obnoxious levels
All in all I am pleased
Thanks to all who helped

Cheers
