It's based off pct. So 1 TV out of 20 is the same as 5 TVs out of 100. They're both 5%.

Any mention of how CS handled the problems?
Most of the Samsung gripes I've read about were related to Samsung refusing to honor a warranty issue. Does the article address that?

It might work the way you describe but I think you're missing an important point. More likely the sound is cancelled during the DSP phase and not cancelled by the speakers. The cancellation occurs in...

I've had setups with matching subs and mismatched subs and it didn't make much difference. Subs aren't the same as other speakers. Exact matching isn't critical. I think what's more important is that...

For music you don't need a ported sub. The ported subs you're considering are tuned at around 20 Hz. Which basically means they'll give a boost at around 20 Hz. For music, you're typically looking at...

By same source, I assume they were both playing 1080 content. Not really the best way to judge a UHD TV. It's like testing a HDTV with SD content.

I agree it would be a good idea to wire for middle ceiling speakers, but if the wiring needs to be done according to code, it will almost certainly need to run into an electrical box. You can't coil...

What I stated is true. Tweeters require less power than midbass and midbass requires less power than woofers for a given spl. This is why I find highly sensitive speakers to sound shrill. They tend...

It's actually the opposite that's true. Generally speaking, sensitivity increases with frequency. By having a powered sub deliver the lower frequencies, you take a lot of the load off the mains and...

You're going to have to power them one way or another so you'll need to either run speaker wire or electrical. Maybe some can be battery powered, but I would guess they wouldn't be much use.

I would get the onkyo expecting to replace it in a few years once 4K becomes common place. None of those receivers are equipped to handle the full 4K spectrum.

Along with the top of the line Intel processor you would need liquid cooling for the processor and have to install cooling fins and a fan on the back of the receiver.

I was thinking the same thing. The only thing is it can support multiple speaker configurations on the fly. I think eventually it will be much better.

I'm surprised that their AV business was only 1/5th of the company. I don't follow car audio, but I never would have guessed that it was 4x larger than their home audio business.

I don't know if it's fishy, but I do wonder why Denon didn't support this. It seems, in theory at least, that Atmos should be able to handle every speaker configuration.
