The physical location will be different for Auro than it is for Atmos. So it will need two separate calibrations. Dirac will of course have no idea that one is Auro and one is Atmos, but of the...

Fair enough. But how would you characterise the audible difference? Is it a dulling of the upper frequency or what? If so, by how much and above what frequency?

I am surprised that of the...

Same here. I will upgrade in fall 2016 and get the 'full house'. Meanwhile I will buy DTS:X discs, play them via DSU and then enjoy them all over again when I get the DTS:X-equipped AVR.

Yes.



The Anti-Mode, AFAIK, corrects only in the frequency domain. The 88A corrects in the time domain also. So it should give a better result. This ties in with my own experience where the 88A...
