Height channels placed high on surround walls. The information could be phased so that the image sounds like it is placed anywhere in that upper acoustic area. This is why higher surround speakers...

Actually, if you don't want XT-32 for all channels but want an EQ for the subs I would recommend tracking down an Audyssey SubEQ (standalone unit) or the SVS version of it. The SMS is good but the...

I'm just hoping the DTS:X announcement has more than one title to announce come game day. That was the biggest thud for me when it came to Dolby's announcement and here we are almost 8 months later...

Thanks. I did a few weeks of A/B'ing the Parasound amps and the Emotiva amps and couldn't find any reason to keep the Parasounds over what I was getting with the XPRs. I hear a lot of complaining...

We had a day of mourning to give it a good send off. Such an amazing processor. Still love it, but with this job I have to stay near the bleeding edge to test out new stuff so its time had come.

This doesn't work because the EQ solutions out there are not doing separate EQ'ing for each measurement spot. They are looking at the cumulative data of all the positions you measured, weighing them...

I think the reason is pretty simple. The solutions are all using multiple measurements to calculate what type of EQ'ing they are going to do over a given area. So the only way to have a reliable...

Lets hope it is a faulty unit and not a bug that is in all of the 8802's because that will be very disappointing.

No, I tried that as well. The only thing that completely eliminates it is turning Audyssey off.

So it turns out that the noise in my processor is due to Audyssey processing. I can eliminate it completely by just disengaging Audyssey. I think the reason I wasn't hearing it as much last week is I...

Not sure you're right on the 10-bit thing. Depends on the color space and frame rate. For UHD Blu-ray at 4:2:0 (most likely) or 4:2:2 (possibly) at 24p, you'd be fine. HDR standards are still in...
