Sad, but true. However, I don't think consumer electronics companies will want to have to navigate two separate speaker re-mapping languages for object based surround in order for their equipment to work correctly. That may mean some will adopt either DTS or Dolby's object codec, but not both.

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

Still nothing really going on in this (or related) thread(s) regarding a consumer form of Atmos.

Plenty of cricket sounds to go around.

It's a long boring wait for more credible info but many of us have our hopes up for something at CEDIA this September.

If questions about UHD media aren't settled soon... Sony being the latest wrinkle... I doubt there will be a rush to put new object codec support into receivers and pre-amps. There has to be a firm commitment that a DTS and/or Dolby format will be included with UHD and what the specs will be or the electronics manufacturers will balk.

You really think you'll have to wait that long? Someone's bound to blab something and put you out of your misery.
