Audyssey doesn’t measure the combined response of the sub(s) and the mains at any stage, so it can only 'calculate' the best XO at the splice. If you use independent methods, such as REW, to optimise...

I wouldn't worry too much about anything 'What H-Fi' says. Their reviews are entirely driven by advertising revenue from the manufacturer of the product being tested for starters. And they feel they...

I raised the same point. Don't you find it disturbing that the CTO of Audyssey doesn't understand how Atmos works, yet at the same time they (Audyssey) are implementing special algorithms to cater...

DTS came out (late) with a 'better' product (on the production side, not consumer) I agree. If they come out with a better product this time, on the consumer side, then they deserve to eclipse Atmos...

DTS gained supremacy on BD because it was a faster (and thus cheaper) solution for the authoring houses. Consumers didn't, and don't, GAF which compression method a disc uses. It's not like the DTS...

One problem is that without Dirac it's going to be difficult to know how it can really sound. But hasn’t Emotiva extended the return period to start from the date when Dirac is implemented?

If they aren't insane, their format will work with the speakers I already have on my ceiling.

Great post, bp. As you understood him, what does he mean by the part I bolded? In Atmos, the overheads are used for imaging.

I think it would be a reasonable bet to say it will never see Dirac either. Not saying it won't - just that it would be a reasonable bet.

I wonder why they are releasing them so slowly? I...

It would have been an easy problem to solve. Unfortunately, it wasn't the problem. It does seem to be getting to the point where the potential customers are just being told plain untruths.
