:) I quite like the remake. It's a different sort of movie and it has pros and cons, but it doesn't stand comparison with the satirical and subversive original. I like the way the remake explores...

Yes - also noticeable in the speed with which the unit processes the information at the end. Really quick. Having used Audyssey Pro for so long, which used to take about 2 hours here, I had forgotten...

I have that version too. The picture is much better than on previous versions. But do be aware, if you are a grain-hater, that the grain is even more noticeable in the remaster, simply because the...

My Tannoy Di5s have 90° all-round dispersion but I still angle them towards MLP. I can't see why Atmos would change the habit of a lifetime. I have to admit...

Oh bugger the neighbours (as we Limeys innocently say) - I just don't have the room, period. :)

What I'd like more, personally, is for the units to measure the angles and elevations of the overhead speakers and report these to the Atmos renderer. That would be of more use to me, personally.

Oh I want it. I want 24.1.10. The problem is I don't have room for it! :)

I want a night with Sienna Miller too. But I have to be realistic and practical in what is achievable :)

Angle them to MLP if that is what Klipsch suggest. Stay within Dolby mandated angles of course, for the chosen config.

I still don't understand. Dolby has released Atmos 24.1.10 already. It's the AVR manufacturers who decided what to include in their units. They can already go for 9.1.4 or 11.1.8 or anything else up...

If you have a competent sub, try setting the crossovers for the overhead speakers at 90Hz or 100Hz or even 120Hz. Let the sub do the heavy lifting here.

By coincidence that was last night's screening here. I agree entirely with you. Oblivion has a fabulous soundtrack and it is hugely enhanced by DSU.

I hope you are right. But just because YPAO 3D can be used during an Atmos setup is not the same thing as saying that the unit will use the information to calculate speaker positions and then pass...

Dolby has already 'come out' with a 24.1.10 configuration for the home version of Atmos, so I don't really understand the talk about 9.1.4. It is entirely up to the AVR manufacturers how 'much' of...

As as has been said - 5.1.4 would be better than the other configurations. 4 overheads enables front to back panning as well as left to right. And it will give a more immersive experience too.

OK. It just seems way too far from the screen to me to get full immersion, but if you prefer it that way, that's all that matters.

No - it's not an issue of the overheads being too quiet. It's an issue of them being mostly silent.
