Why cant you add 2 channels if you have the capacity, send the center height channel INPUT to the left height channel OUTPUT, the mixer will add it, then do the same for right height channel, INPUT center height channel OUTPUT right height channel.

WHY NOT HERE? Consolidate 2 front subs into one if you have to, this is more important,no?

The problem is that you move the output to a desired input. That output can not be in two places at once, ie on the centre height and front height L/R simultaneously. Now if you could copy the Centre Height input and move that onto the front left / right height then it would be fine.

Basically, you can have as many output channels as you want routed to a single input but you can not copy those inputs and have as many of them as you want on an output channel. Hope that makes sense.

Is the HDMI upgradable in the future?

The spec here: http://www.datasatdigital.com/consum...-processor.php says HDMIv1.4. Upgrade to 2.0?

So, does anyone know if this is on Datasat's 'to do' list?

Would ATMOS have use for a Center Height or VOG??

Thanks!!

Datasat's aware and it is on the engineering task list for a future firmware update.

Dolby Atmos does not have a Center Height. It also doesn't have a VOG as such, instead it uses multiple pairs of overheads.

Re: HDMI 2.0 in the LS10 - that is not something that can be achieved in firmware. Full HDMI 2.0 functionality would require a wholesale hardware change. However, please note that most of the desired functionality of HDMI 2.0 is supported by current hardware (UHD video at 24 or 30 fps).

No.

The consumer version of Atmos has 34 potential speaker locations: 24 around you and 10 above you. Pick as many or as few speakers as you want.



Notice no Centre Height nor VOG.

Am I the only one who finds it weird that the Left and Right front are 90° from each other, vs the normal 60°?

The whole thing is odd... and certainly not settled. I'm back in beta mode!

Sloppiness by the art department, not the official recommendation by Dolby.

Is Dolby expecting home theater architecture to resemble an oil tank or some domed temple. Why the round array?I prefer my layout better.

Sanjay,

Is linear distance between the overhead speakers specified to be less than the left and right front speakers as seemingly indicated by above diagram? (Are the overhead speakers supposed to be closer together than front speakers, similar to positioning of overhead array of commercial theaters?) And if so, are there specific "numbers" (angle or linear distance) specified by Dolby?
Thanks.

Like I said, their art department arbitrarily labeled a couple of those locations as L/R. Front speakers aren't typically 90 degrees apart. At the Dolby presser Monday, their preliminary suggestion was to have the height arrays in line with the front L/R speakers, which they assumed were at ±30° from centre.

Yeah I was just joking, though they should do a rectangle and angle the speakers like the 3 front wides in the cinema floorplan. its simpler.

You should watch jodorowsky's dune. He rips Doug Trumbull a new one because JDK wants spacecraft with a soul, the a-list expert is a top method technician, but his 60 fps showscan for example has always been considered cold, perhaps SOUL-LESS?

I too thus came to the realization THAT HT's need a SOUL, (mine mostly do ) and that individuals obsessed with the subject on a purely technical basis probably are oblivious to the concept of anthropometric soul in the machine "anima-machina". This CEDIA I will make sure to walk the floor just with individuals seeking systems with soul potential...
