As a discrete 11.1 format (7.1 plus wides/heights) it looks that way, however as up-mixing 7.1 to 11.1 NeoX still is very worthy.

Very few discrete Atmos blurays out there and even projected for 2015.

It could even be debatable that as up mixing NeoX may be "better" than DSU (Dolby Surround Upmixing), since putting sounds into ceiling speakers may be more difficult to get "right" than wides/front heights.

I asked DTS if there were any plans on releasing any future blu-rays with neo:x. They said no.

Yep the market has shifted to object sound, now ask them about DTS-UHD and CES 2015, just 3 weeks away...
Speaker layout strategy, install guidelines, etc.
And what sorta Upmixing algorithm they will use on non DTS-UHD sources.

There is no need for Neo:X going forward except as a competing upconverting, post processing feature like Dolby Surround.

Dolby Atmos, Auro3D, and DTS MDA, all with discrete audio information rather than matrixing, are the new games in town.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!
