Sony Receiver Upgrade Option (Sony STR-DH550 vs STR-DH750) from Newmar as a Special

Working on developing a list of options and "specials" for a new coach and this will be our first Newmar. Has anyone requested an upgrade in the supplied Sony Receiver as a special from Newmar? The retail price difference between the Sony STR-DH550 and STR-DH750 is only $100 and it adds Bluetooth connectivity. I frequently use bluetooth in our coach AV setup and I especially like it for the outdoor entertainment area so I can stream music and SiriusXM while grilling or relaxing outside. Yes, I can add bluetooth functionality to the STR-DH550 via aftermarket devices, but why add another device in the loop and risk compatibility issues if can upgrade to a receiver that already has it.

As long as they can get it from their distributor, I expect they would do it. But don't expect to get it for only $100 difference.

I did in 2015. It was less expensive to take the standard STR-DH550 and buy an DH-1050 then having Newmar substitute it.

Personally I think the Sony is terrible and in hindsight should have left it out and purchased a unit on my own. If you are fussy at all about sound systems consider that it's not Newmars strong point.

Nothing that Newmar installs is the latest and greatest, so take the basic and upgrade to what you really want later. This applies to radios, TV's, DVD players etc.
