You showed me photos of your "little" speakers/subs at the Dolby event. How are you not deaf by now?? :D You didn't get to the Steinway demo? That really was 9.1.4. You could easily tell. And...

All in-ceilings will not work with Atmos.

I didn't say the surrounds had to be EXACTLY 100% the same as the front LCR. Unless you have a huge room, that would be impracticable. They should (and the best demos I heard bear this out) be...

It's $100 now. Drat. Are there ever any coupon codes like CEDIA has? It also asks for industry affiliation qualifications. How do you get around that?
