I have a room (the "man-cave" sheet metal poster on the door shows a hungry grizzly threatening unauthorized intruders--my wife's best friend gave it to me), so I'm lucky that way. Time is what is in...

I voted according to my anecdotal experience (most people haven't heard MCH music before), though any of the options merits consideration.

I arrived at a MCH setup for movies, but quickly jumped...

I use my headphones often for music when working at my computer (as I am doing right now), but as a substitute for HT sound, I voted "occasionally" (though even that is inexact). I never use my...

At 1080p, the BD is showing you a down-rezzed version of the image captured on either 35MM or IMAX film. The IMAX film is a much higher resolution source than the 35MM, so even though the final...

A few days ago, I sat with my son and introduced him to some classic Yes (The Yes Album on Blu-ray in lossless MCH). It was a blast. I'm listening to the same album now (the 2014 Steve Wilson stereo...

Can you get your hands on a copy of one of the latter two Nolan Batman films on Blu-ray? You won't get the full effect (IMAX is 1.44:1 and the BD expansion is confined to 1.78:1) but it'll give you...

Predictable. And I don't have to "speak for you". All anyone needs to do is read the posts you've already made. Easy enough to draw conclusions from them. And "clue", it's not my preference for MCH...

So, in each case, MCH (combined) is a clear majority--and bigger now than in 2011. Good to know.

A discrete MCH release is mixed into 3.0, 4.0, 4.1, 5.0, 5.1 or something else--no algorithm. However, he was asking if there's a difference between a discrete MCH mix and a 2ch mix sent through an...
