If the AuroMax home implementation really is a minimum of 20.1 speakers, how are they going to persuade any content providers to mix/master for it?

It seems to me that this is a solution in search of a problem. AuroMax is a rendering engine for rendering a proposed SMPTE-standardized object-based mix to an Auro-3D - based speaker layout. Since...

There was some early marketing spin that DTS:X was somehow entirely layout agnostic, but that has not panned out in the real world. The DTS:X layouts closely track those of Dolby Atmos.

24fps looks great at the local cineplex, and looks equally great on my Panasonic plasma. If a TV can't make a native 24fps Blu Ray look good I blame the TV.

Cable or satellite channels might degrade to 480i, but I thought the actual broadcasts were with 1080i or 720p? (1080p is not supported with current ATSC). Certainly everyone in my market broadcasts...

I have a 60" VT60, and I don't see myself moving onto something else for at least a year, maybe two. When local TV broadcasts move to ATSC 3.0, with some combination of HDR, expanded color, or UHD...

I don't think switching to an Atmos receiver will help - if you're still playing in 5.1 mode, then Atmos decoding won't kick in anyway, you'll still be playing the 5.1 soundtrack just as you are now....

You need at least one pair of height or overheards for Atmos to kick in; otherwise you'll be listening to the same 5.1 track that you'd get on any AVR that can decode the 5.1 codecs.

But even a...

If you're sticking to 7.1.4 you should also consider the Datasat LS10. It has *most* of the feature set of the RS20i but maxes out at 11 output channels; perfect for 7.1.4 setups.

AFAIK DTS:X doesn't have any added functionality over Dolby Atmos. I think DTS' sales proposition is more to the content producers: Dolby's is a very locked down ecosystem: mix your feature (or,...
