Great post, I saw a version of the Occulus last year at my job, that was cool but still needed a lot of work. Mostly it was the huge pixels that bugged me, and I did feel some nausea but I'm looking...

Pretty sure that all center channels which are horizontal are sub-optimal. It's just physics. And geometry. Vertically aligned speakers are best, and having all front 3 speakers being identical is...

Very cool. Atmos seems like it could achieve a similar result, building on that. But it would have a very tight listening sweet spot. It would have to be toggle-able to when you have lots of people...

What difference do you believe 96hz provides over 48? Other than a placebo effect, that is.

Atmos seems like an actual, worthwhile improvement. I hope it succeeds. 24/96 is totally pointless...

Big question is, what...

So it's got a different physical diffusion pattern? I wonder how they're going to sell that, for speakers that also need to sound good on non-Atmos material, such as 99.999999999% of the world's...

I also code videogames (including audio), and think Atmos is probably the best thing to happen to movie audio in a long time, possibly even since the advent of surround sound.

If you open up a 100k speaker the wires inside are probably 1/10th or even 1/100th as thick as the silly wires that people plug into the other end of the terminal.
