However, it's clear those two studios are waiting...

It won't be.. and I love DSU.. but I like a more discrete sound from my up mixing... it seems many do not.

But as confirmed in the podcast, Neural:X only works on 5.1 and 7.1 content.

IMAX resets all their rooms remotely to reference every morning.

Those two films are quite loud. I don't think Scott's findings are abnormal.

Not true at all.

If you don't have greater than 5.1 or 7.1 DTS:X doesn't add any "benefit."

Just like Atmos you will get the core 5.1 or 7.1 encode.

That was one of the most far fetched things I've heard on AVS in a long time.

DTS bought SRS a while ago. It has taken them a while to figure out what to do with MDA.

Everyone mistakenly believes the prevalence of DTS on BR is a "win."

It is only a win if the only metric you judge by is title count.

Since there is no licensing fee paid per...
