When will we see some proper information on how DTS:X will be integrated into the hardware and how we can translate it into our speaker set-ups?

You are probably right. The Panasonic PT-AT6000E as it's called in EU can be had for €1,500 these days. Lens memory is definitely nice to have. It's the main reason why I would not consider the Sony...

I don't know, Keith. The speaker from THX also claims Top Front + Top Middle is the preferred x.1.4 combo, more than Top Front + Top Rear for instance. If only one could choose this setting... As we...

We have been here before and I keep repeating that small rooms need small speakers, not less speakers. A small room has exactly the same amount of degrees as a large room, ie, 360 on the horizontal...

There you go! Many words are almost identical. One of these days, I will take some lessons in Swedish and amaze the heck out you Northeners! Though I bet most of you speak English anyway.

My $500 UMC-1 worked flawlessly from day one. It was one of the last, admittedly, but still. I am keeping it boxed now until my HT is ready for the XMC-1 I have connected since 2...

1 That's not what it said. They wrote that because it sounded nice, but it's marketing BS. Measuring speaker angles and elevation is not "moving sound". I agree it's a very good idea for the AVR to...

You do need ceiling or elevated speakers for 3D sound. What it means though is that if your speakers are in somewhat awkward positions, DTS-X will recalibrate it's parameters to make the best of it....

Well, +1 I guess.

I want 9.1.6 Atmos and I want Dirac. Dirac won. I could have delayed my buying decision between the AV7702 and the XMC-1 since the HT is still a few months from ready (the DIY...
