LOL. Say it often enough and you might even start to believe it. But all the odds stack up in favor of my view ;) Let's come back here in 2 or 3 year's time and see who was right. My guess is that...

That is a valid way of doing it of course. I didn't go that route because I wanted to optmise my movie-watching experience. This means an essentially black room, festooned with speakers and acoustic...

I don't think I understand the question. it is described as 7.1.4 because that is the nomenclature that Dolby have chose to use to describe Atmos for the Home. 7 listener level speakers and 4...

With me I just find it easier to keep the two separate. A lot of the problems associated with HT simply disappear if one doesn't have to consider music reproduction, which allows me to get the best...

Yes it is my opinion. But it is based on factual reports from professional mixers and, also, on common sense. If a system is easier to use, and therefore quicker and cheaper, and it also delivers a...

I already tried it with Dredd. It is way better when upmixed with DSU, even though it is 'optimized' for Neo:X. It is much more immersive - just as one would expect when upmixing to twice as many...

True enough. But it won’t be long before almost all movies are mixed in Atmos or DTS:X or their object-based equivalent in the Pro world. It gives the mixer much more control and it's easier at the...

Just comparing with Atmos. Old style = channel-based. That's the tech that's on its way out. Object-based is the tech that is replacing it.
