That would be ideal. A full 9.1.6 speaker layout support would allow for a user to have the ability to playback: DSX, NeoX, DSU, Atmos, DTS-UHD and Auro3d. As long as it had the ability to know where the speakers were (even rudimentary) you could render all of that with one speaker layout.

Hopefully, Atmos in 2016 and 4k in 2017.
I hear ya. I just don't see me cutting holes in my ceiling. I'm quite content slumming it with 7.1. But stranger things have happened...

Good advice. However, as my wife will tell you, I'm not really good at listening. I have my eyes on the 8802. Any thoughts?

It's nice but you might regret the purchase when you want/need to move to 4K/UHD and DTS-UHD support. In which case you'll need to worry about selling the damn thing. And if you're perfectly content with 7.1 now....

Save some cash and headaches and wait it out.... like me.

Are you waiting it out? Was certain you were getting one of the Onkyo's. I Thought I read somewhere Marantz will offer an upgrade to DTS UHD when becomes available. Then again, I've gone the upgrade a component route in the past and it's not worth it.

Lol, no way. I own an Onkyo and will never get a new one. I'm a Yamaha guy and that's the next machine I'm getting. But yeah, I'm gonna wait. At least til I can have Atmos and UHD in the same machine and hopefully support for >7.1.4 speakers.

People are speculating all over the place. Nothing definitive wrt DTS-UHD at all. Just that it's being worked on and might be available in 2015.

Now what is coming soon for some gear (I know for sure Denon/Marantz) is an Auro3D upgrade that you have to pay for.

It's purely wishful thinking to believe that DTS-UHD will be a free software upgrade for old (current) hardware when it comes out. And who knows when that will be?

Oops. Sorry. It's Friday and my cerebral cortex is already starting the shut down for the weekend process. Was hoping to get all this Atmos/DTS UHD stuff diagramed in crayon to me.

You make very valid points. I will probably hold off too. That's the smart play.

Now back to horror and one of the most frightening beasts out there.

Spoiler!

Used my Vudu credit to watch The Signal. Quite good little scifi flick. I like these smaller productions. They feel like fleshed out episodes of The Outer Limits as opposed to the bigger flashy stuff.

I will be limited to my 4 ceiling speakers that are already there but it will be more than enough once I get the AVR with Atmos! I still need to get my subwoofer another friend!





Back to some Horror, I fit in The Thing since the snow is still outside (melting) and I find it funny that back when this movie premiered along with Bladerunner, critics lambasted these films! Now they are revered as Sci and Horror classic movies, funny how things work out! Also another tidbit of info I didn't know about The Thing is that Rob Bottin was only 22 when he started work on The Thing and running a 40 man effects crew to get the film done! He got really exhausted working on the film so much a docter ordered him to get some needed rest. So Stan Winston stepped in to help with some of the effects/creatures! Good Stuff!
