Agreed. It seems that the superior mixing capability enables the mixers to achieve this. So even for those who don't upgrade to Atmos, there is a benefit.

What do you think is causing this? The content is PCM. It is compressed either by DTS or Dolby, losslessly. That is to say, when uncompressed, you get all of the original PCM content. So how would...

Depending on the speakers you use yes. I am assuming you won't be using incredibly insensitive 4 ohm speakers for rear surrounds..

My Oppo BD player can output 4:4:4, 4:2:2 and RGB. I am feeding RGB into my Epson 5030. Does anyone know what the difference is, if any, between these, and if RGB is...

OK, I'll bite. What makes you think that a soundtrack compressed losslessly with DTS will sound any different to one compressed losslessly with Dolby? Is one 'more lossless' than the other? ;)

Not so, Dan. One of the most impressive aspects of Atmos IMO is the ability it has to give much, much more precision to the way the sounds are placed right through the soundstage, not just overhead....

Excellent - thanks for posting. Great idea to start with 'old sound' and then contrast it with new, Atmos sound. Also a great idea to showcase the various benefits of Atmos the way they do.

Just to confirm: that is my own setup here, and it works brilliantly. The OP should be happy following your advice.

My advice, based on experience, is to wire for as many speaker options as you think you will ever be able to use while the room is unfinished. Wire is cheap (Monoprice) and will cost you next to...

You’re more than welcome. It can be confusing at first I agree. The general consensus in the Atmos thread (home version) is that 4 overheads are better than 2. 4 overheads allow for front to back and...
