Jim thanks for the info. Regarding Atmos and DTS:X, if WAF is a huge problem, you don't have to go all out and add a bunch of speakers, IMHO just adding two to the top, 5.1.2 or 7.1.2, is already a...

This is a good move, but then don't you now have such a potpourri of speaker drivers in this Quested room: conventional dome for the ceiling, ribbon for the surround, and AMT for the front. 3...

Sure. The room is super important, primary reason being the room modes in sub Shroeder (lower) frequency. Big speakers in small rooms with resulting boomy bass is BY FAR the most common problem I...

Phono as in a turntable, I assume? If so, good for you ;). Comparison is a lot of fun and always so educational. Another fun one is 5.1 HD versus 5.1 upmixed to 7.1. See what happens to overall sound...

This might be a good point that I don't necessarily disagree with, but it strays far from the original topic of discussion, which is, is DTS:X more layout agnostic? And the answer is, if such and...

Maybe the better word is "layout agnostic"? Anyway this is what I meant:
1. Auro 9.1 for example specifies a specific speaker layout.
2. Atmos 7.1.4 specifies a specific speaker layout, different...
