Icom have released a firmware upgrade for the Icom IC-7100 which is available from the Icom website [here]. I followed the below procedure in order to upgrade my radio to the latest software:

  1. Switch the radio off 
  2. Run 7100_fu_release_e3.exe by double clicking the file 
  3. Hold the [AUTOTUNE], [XFC] and the [DR] buttons and the power the radio on 
  4. Check the RX indication is flashing green 
  5. Click the OK button
  6. Allow the software to complete the upgrade
  7. Power cycle the radio
According to the Icom website, this version of the firmware improves the received audio quality, although I haven't had time to full asses this!
