It depends if you can localise frequencies at 120Hz or not. Personally I would never cross over that high. If you *have* to cross over that high, it implies that you might need to reconsider the...

Don't worry about it, or overthink it. Moving them inboard a little is fine. Try to get good separation between all the speakers in the room and you will be good to go. IOW, put speakers in spaces...

:) That is the working name of the project for the installers. It's not bad. I haven't really settled on a name yet and just use Cowshed because that is what the building originally was. It wasn't...

No, there is nothing random about it. All upmixers work to an algorithm. The algorithm 'looks at' what content is in the 'baked in' channels (eg the 5.1) and it then, in the case of DSU, extracts...

Thanks and yes it is. There's a link in my sig if you care to take a look. I believe you can browse without registering.

You seem to be getting confused by some of the terminology. You don't 'upmix' to Atmos 5.1.4. Atmos is 'baked in' if you will, just like DTS HD MA 7.1 or Dolby TrueHD for example. Upmixing is when...

Generally if you have to choose between speakers in front of you and speakers behind you, I'd choose in front. Our ear/brain is much more sensitive to sounds coming from in front of us. If you can...

AE speakers are very good, but if I were you I'd choose physical speakers if at all possible. If you really can't, then AE speakers will give you a better result than no AE speakers.

That setup is...

There were high hopes, at the beginning of the Atmos era, that this is how it would work - with so-called 'positional rendering'. Unfortunately these hopes were dashed and the AVR makes an assumption...
