I'm curious about the upmixer for DTS:X, but I'm certainly happy with DSU as well. Ignorance is bliss for now, I suppose. I haven't found a need to double dip. DSU has been stellar save for a few...

I'm keeping faith in the notion that they'll provide all the features as promised. There are, what, less than a handful of titles in DTS:X right now anyway? And how many more by the end of the...

I also really enjoyed the movie. I did have to watch it over the course of two nights, though, because I really can't stay awake for that long after the kids go to bed. As far as Deadpool goes, I...

I'm pretty sure the 1120 is the same as the 720 WRT subs - it treats it as one signal. I level matched the subs using an spl meter, switched the phase on my iNuke and then ran ARC. The sub...

I watched it last night. Maybe it was because I had really low expectations, but I actually didn't mind the movie. The latter half of the movie was quite enjoyable, tbh. I will attest to the...

I'll get it because I have the other two, but there's nothing awe-inspiring about these movies - they're rather meh and don't engage me enough to foster much of an emotional response. I'm not...

Here's something else to think about. If I could do it all over again, I'd more than likely go with pro cinema speakers. Realistically, they are very competitive price-wise with medium-high end...

That amp definitely won't cut it for the 603 speakers. It's a 16 ohm speaker, so you need double the watts you'd need for an 8 ohm speaker. It may be OK for the 601s, but I guess I'm erring on the...

I sometimes forget to change configs for when I am watching alone vs having friends over to watch a flick. It is a bit of a pain in the crack, but when you set up ARC, you can uncheck the box for...

I beat it, but it was after many attempts and memorizing boss patterns and doing the bomb/pause cheat on some of the bosses. You have to go in to the final boss with a fully charged gun or you'll...

It's interesting because I feel like this movie has amazing surround sound. It has visceral bass in the opening scene and the bike chase scene is just ridiculous. However, this judgement is from...

Sweet. Let us know your impressions. I'm sure you'll find it will make your setup sing.

A great movie for a tester and one that has a good Atmos mix is Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.

Like I said in my earlier post, if you got the 720 (~$2500) and the Inuke Nu4 6000 (~$350) you'd be sitting at less than 3K for a sweet setup. It's like having your cake and eating it too. :)

I'm watching it this weekend in 3D. I'm not an expert, but I do own a fair amount of 3D movies and will give it a subjective impression relative to the others in my collection.
