It would be more fun to have 11.11.6 with 11 subs (OK, maybe not your clients). Imagine some one with 11 Seaton Submersives and a 40x35 room...:cool:

I think it would be funnier to have nine subs and four heights :), That room would have enough bass for even Scott Simonian LOL. Imagine if they were Seatons...

Hi everyone,
Been a while, but I was talking to Sanjay (sdurani) from the very active LA Home Theater group, and it got me thinking about the idea of possibly setting up a local event for Chicago...

Jeff,
I'm in downtown Chicago but if you decide to have a get-together in your theater with the Datasat after the Atmos upgrade, I'd be interested in possibly doing a drive to check out your...

Getting to this a bit late, but I wanted to point out that Pioneer had their Atmos Enabled speakers from Andrew Jones at their demo at the 2014 CEDIA as well - I believe they used their Elite towers...

I've been following this thread and the Atmos thread almost since the beginning, and IMO there's a few (obvious) reasons why there are different camps rather than the choice of 3D audio being as...

IIRC seamless branching wasn't an issue for the 103 but it was on the Oppo 93. I want to say that it was a limitation of the Mediatek processing chip used in older Oppos - wonder if it's the same...

At least with Atmos, I wonder if this is related to seamless branching? I'm going to use an Oppo 103 for BD content (I'm also working on getting my DVD collection onto a NAS Drive for DLNA playback)....

So basically these are like DefTech Supercube 2000 or 4000, except that the specs are more reliable for -3 db :), and you don't have the pretty wireless-based display. Still, I wonder if they'd come...

I've been happy with my PSB Imagine S surrounds to date, and have used them in dual mono mode for a 7.1 configuration. However, after doing some spring cleaning at home, I'm...
