If you have a standard 7.1 speaker layout, then an AVR or pre/pro with Atmos decoding and the DSU upmixer doesn't do anything for you - Dolby TrueHD Blu Rays will just play back in standard 7.1, and...

Is there perhaps a movie mode that will properly anchor the dialogue to the center channel? It would be rather a shocking oversight on DTS' part if Neural:X does not properly handle matrixed...

The restriction lies in the Analog Devices DSPs that power the RS20i - that chipset (like every other currently available DSP solution) is limited to 11 channels of Atmos processing. If/when DSP...

Thanks for the correction, I forget that on most AVRs DSU replaced PLII.

Does DSU have a music mode as PLII did?

We should amend your question to be: when umpixing stereo to 7.1, what sound...

I would save the $200 - it makes very little sense to use Auromatic in a 7.1 system, the focus of all of Auro's R&D is on immersive sound using the height layer of speakers. 7.1 content you should...

As GXMnow mentioned upthread, it's a mono VOG speaker, not used for Atmos playback.

A few years back there was an experiment with using Dolby Surround EX to matrix an extra channel for the...

The only idea I am hostile to is the claim that all post-conversion 3D is somehow "fake 3-D" and should be avoided at all costs. If Robert Zemeckis spends as much time as he did preparing the 3D...

That really is a judgment call. I really love the music content available natively in Auro-3D, and Auromatic is really lovely as an upmixer.

If I had the budget to sustain a Trinnov Altitude, I...

Not the day I was there - they had an Auro-3D 9.1 setup, with the surrounds positioned at about 110 degrees and the SH heights directly above the surrounds.

It did sound great, though.
