I agree with you. I have never once said that people should not use dipoles if they prefer them for their surround speakers. I am sure they will continue to work well with Atmos (at the sides but...

When the mixer wants to place a sound solely into the left surround channel, that is what he does. Of course, when it is played back in a commercial theater, it is heard from multiple speakers at...

Fair point. I should have said "neither unit has a functioning automated room EQ system". Emotiva said in mid July that Dirac would be implemented in 60 days or less. So we can expect it in the next...

Almost, but not all, units with XT32 have SubEQ HT, which is the bit that sets levels and delays separately for 2 subs.

I don't think I am. If people want to use dipoles, then so be it. It's their choice. And when the mixer decides that he wants to put a single sound directly into the left surround speaker,...

But they are only mixed that way because that is what is in commercial theaters! And what is in commercial theaters is there as a forced consequence of the room size not a desired objective.

And I said a while back that dipoles would be fine for surrounds with Atmos (but probably not for overheads) if someone was already using dipoles for surrounds and liked them.

Sanjay and I deliberately left Atmos out of it I think, because of course it doesn’t have what was effectively a left surround split into multiple speakers and ditto a right surround.

Can’t argue with that. But you could buy the 636 and a miniDSP 10x10 and still have about $1,000 in hand compared with the XMC-1.

The 60 day window for Dirac must be up soon I’d think. Can’t...

Ah yes - good catch. I'd forgotten that!

So if the XMC-1 could be upgraded to Atmos, it'd be competing with a unit that costs about 600 bucks... ;) And includes 5 amplifiers. And Pandora,...
