Free is always good. :D

At CEDIA. They mentioned that a 9.1.4 rendering block was being worked on when I asked. I would assume for future generation products.

Any particular reason why you...

Studio 20's for the back surrounds. Most definitely.

You don't want to have overly diffuse speakers with the new sound formats. Times, they are a-changin'. :D

That, plus a 7.1.4 vs a 5.1.4 config, etc. For instance, if you have rear surrounds or not.

It would be interesting information to find out, for sure.

I remember people that went to see T4 in Atmos said the mix was pretty unhinged. I think something isn't right with either the discs or the hardware... or maybe both.
