There is a lot of misinformation in it. And in Andrew Robinsons video as well.
The same can be said of the Emotiva Lounge....
They keep intimating how there really are no objects, how it really won't gain any kind of meaningful traction, how Dolby is withholding information because the system can't possibly be like the cinematic counterpart, how reflective sound can't possibly work.
On the last point I agree it doesn't work as well as direct firing speakers.
But I've heard it.
But at least Dolby invented something for those that can't install ceiling speakers. But they just want to mock it.
IMO it's the last time I'll visit their site and I've lost all respect for Gene as a reviewer. He prefers 2.0 anyways (he says so in the video) so why should I seek his opinion on MC.
Keith of Emotiva tried to opine on how object based mixing makes life so much easier for us know twirlers.
If Emotiva employees spent as much time finishing the XMC-1 as they did posting misguided information about Atmos maybe we'd be able to buy one this year.
Misinformed are both sites, and neither has heard even a demo.
