Great news on the XMC-1. Let us know what you think of it without DIRAC and with DIRAC. You are most likely going to want to also purchase DIRAC full for more control and option to use your own measurement mic and cal file.

Yeah, I'd consider the Dirac full upgrade to be essential in most cases.


The good news about the XMC-1 (based on what I have read) is that it it's a good unit and it doesn't need to do sample rate conversion for 44 or 48khz signals.

The bad news is that the multi-sub stuff isn't implemented right, so you have to use a single sub output and time align the subs manually.

More bad news is that it only holds a single Dirac preset, so there is no way to instantly A/B test Dirac filters, which is a big shame.


By comparison, the MiniDSP DDRC-88A does handle multiple presets, but it is fixed at 48khz, which might be audible for 44khz sources. Even so, I expect that the Dirac improvements should overwhelm that in most cases.


The PC version of Dirac Live (which I use) supports multiple presets and doesn't need to do any sample rate conversion, but you are limited to using the PC as the only source, so no Atmos or DTS-X.


Gotta compromise somewhere, unless you get a Datasat, which is nuts.


I'd love to see something like a DDRC-88A which does 16 channels at 96khz, with built-in bass mgmt, all for a reasonable price.

^ That is one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite Atmos movies.

and yes, the new "Immersive Audio Format" movies have their own category.

This is a good place for blu ray concerts I found the prices to be so-so but it is a good directory. I recently picked up David Glimour: Night to Remember, Pink Floyd fans need to pick this up. superb audio on it


Its not ahead of Through the Never, but it is up there

Foo Fighters at Wembly stadium even sounds good on youtube, I'll have to pick up the disc for sure.
A random search on youtube found some artists going by the name Yoshida Brothers, lots of clean detailed music from them , interesting stuff.

It takes lots of abnormal people to make things easy for normal people.

Great list, I have quite a few, and see some I don't and need to get. How good is the Scorpions unplugged? Not a band I would expect to see do that

I received on Blu-ray yesterday and four more today. Scorpions Unplugged hasn't arrived yet, but was recommended by Carp.

I'm not a huge Scorpions fan - meaning I liked some of their stuff as a kid (Blackout album especially) - but I knew they were known to be really good musicians. They show it off on this blu ray, I stumbled on to it a few months ago and was really impressed.

asoofi1 If it's not to much to ask, how far is it in inches from lens to screen? I ask because I have the same projector and I would love to have your screen size but I'm cutting it close (by like several inches) in my room. Thanks!

Ive been gobbling up blu ray concerts and audio lately, David Gilmour is my recent purchase. Video is nothing spectacular but the audio is great, envelops the room with the soundstage. Couple beers and turn up Breathe is a good way to unwind.

Hi Guys,


Is anyone running an atoms setup with all JTR speakers. I am currenty running triple 12's across the from (lcr) and triple 8's for the four surrounds (side and rear). Talking to Jeff now about maybe changing the triple 12's to 215's but I was wondering thoughts on going atmos with some single 8 (lp) for those.

If i don't do the voice of god speaker (seems like a pain in the but to mount and wire) what would that leave me with to do? I guess front heights (which would mount butted against ceiling in line with front left and right) maybe front wides which I could only place a foot or two away from left and right fronts (not sure if this would actually add anything with so little seperation)

Any advice would greatly be appreciated

Thanks

Even if you kept your current T12/T8 system I think the Single 8LP would be a perfect JTR match for Atmos. You cannot go wrong with any of the S8 series no matter what JTR fronts/surrounds you may have or end up with.

My base channel layer (7 channels) is all JTR with Triple 8LP's as the side surrounds and Slanted 8's as the surround backs. I used to have another pair of Slanted 8's as height speakers but when I got the 215RT's I no longer felt the need for the front height speakers. My Atmos are setup as FH and RH and are very active with both Atmos and DSU (Dolby Surround Up-mixer). In fact, DSU or Atmos are my defaults for everything except for an occasional 2 channel session and I love the sound bubble effect that the 11 channels creates.

If I hadn't found such a great deal on the JBL's, I would have bitten the cost bullet and gone for Slanted 8's as ceiling speakers. I think that their 20° front baffle angle is perfect for ceiling mounted Atmos as they have good dispersion and yet can be aimed toward the primary LP. I would have positioned the Slanted 8's in essentially the same positions as the JBL's as shown below but perhaps a bit more outboard of the seating area and may do just that one of these days as having all of the speakers with the JTR voicing would be the best no compromises setup.


One of the Triple 8LP's is in the lower right hand of this photo and is stealthy as it is installed inside of a 2'X4' GIK 224 acoustic panel.
