My enthusiasm for Dolby Atmos has come back down to earth.
The hyper change touted by entertainment industry regarding object based sound (aka 3D) is really just marketing to get us all to open our wallets.
Think I'll be sitting on the fence with arms across the chest with the 'show me' look before committing anything to Atmos. This is based on current information.
Maybe things it'll be different next year and Denon will have models that truly implement 3D sound objects, hence will keep things in view.
