Someone should start a DTS-UHD thread.
they did have a booth at CES.
While not in theaters, does that matter?
I don't recall that many DTS only theaters now yet the majority of my blurays have DTS-HD on them.
Not sure how not being in theaters is that big of a deal.
As to the objects vs discrete I think we are talking in circles here.
i asked here if these new AVRs take object based audio and creates discrete channels.
The answer is yes so again I don't see the big deal.
Now I'll give you the confusion around speakers, heck I'm still sorting through that myself and will have to make some hard choices if I want to jump on this bandwagon.
Right now as it stands I like the idea very much just not the current sacrifices I will need to make to play in the game at this point.
I think the best course for ME is to wait and see how this sorts itself out.
It would be silly to think that Dolby will be the only object based toy in town just like I can't buy a Dolby only AVR.
(and its a good thing since for the most part I tend to prefer DTS-HD MA over Dolby TrueHD mixes)
