Yes, Audyssey works the same way. If you run Audyssey and then try to use the (crude) GEQ found in some models, than Audyssey is disabled.
I (wrongly) thought Emo might allow for some PEQ on top of...

I said that I was only applying a small amount of PEQ, not a small amount of overall filtering. ("my PEQ work is just tweakery...")

Yes, not disagreeing here at all. Just as a general principle I try to use the smallest number of filters that gets the job done. Bluescale had 4 covering just a 14Hz spread and I think he can...

I don't. I mean so long as he is aware, in general, of the issue of headroom when using boost filters. 6dB at 20-odd Hz is a quadrupling of power at a frequency where power is simply gobbled up, as I...

Or he could designate the front pair as Heights and the rear pair as Top Middle, which is a permitted combination.

How about "color/timbre" AND precise location? He says this as though they are mutually exclusive. The more I read stuff by Van Baelen, the slipperier he seems to become.

Is it really shot 'flat'? I don't think Michael bay has ever shot a movie flat in his life, so that alone calls all those specs into question for me.

While I agree with you, I'd expect, just from a marketing POV, that they'd have an Atmos sticker somewhere on the packaging.

OK - but you know what filters you are using I guess - their frequency, Q and level? I assume the XMC-1 will tell you this?

Maybe - but chances are it will cost as much as an Atmos AVR, so there's not much to be gained.

You'll have to ask the manufacturer if they don't publish this information on their website or in their speaker literature. Good luck! ;)
