I run 4 Polk V60 Slims that I got off of eBay. They work nicely for Atmos duty and match well with my bed-level Polk speakers.

Does it mostly happen with older titles that were converted to 5.1 from stereo mixes? I wonder if it's because they're mirroring the dialogue slightly in the other channels and the upmixer sees it as...

Don't worry, I got it... But I live in a one-story home, so I'm pretty sure those sounds were in the movie. Or there's some crazy s#!t going on in my attic. One of those things. :D

I haven't stressed over it too much, because every other track on that demo disc has cohesive pans through those speakers. That's the only demo clip that doesn't sound as perfect as I'd like with...

My 4 overheads are at pretty much dead-on perfect angles per Dolby's guidelines and that helicopter demo still seems to snap between speakers rather than smoothly pan between them in a uniform...

Oh, quadraphonic placement was a different animal, and I think we'd all agree on the speaker placement for that. But we were specifically talking about Dolby/DTS 5.1. It just spun off into its own...

Finally got around to picking this up. Fantastic Atmos track! Great use of objects all around the room for discrete sounds and for ambience. I was very impressed!

If we added 10 years, that would be before the existence of digital 5.1 in theaters (1992). I think Dolby's 1996 diagram for the home is pretty clear proof that there are not now nor were there ever...

And initially was done with matrixed solutions like DD-EX and DTS:ES. This argument was always semantic. They're on the side walls in the theater... And the home was never any different.

You just proved my point exactly. 110 degrees isn't ON THE BACK WALL... especially when he said he has two rows of seating. Look at the guy's diagram! Back wall placement doesn't fit the angles of...

What people DID and what they're supposed to do are two different arguments. There are no rear surrounds in 5.1.

Exactly. And Dolby's original 5.1 guideline diagram was as attached. You could pull them slightly behind the listener, but never on the back wall. There are no "rear surrounds" in a 5.1 setup.

Since when? Dolby has always dictated that surrounds in a 5.1 setup go directly to the sides of your listening position.

Ugh... No Atmos on the Blu-ray? I wish they would stop doing that. I don't want to buy a UHD player just to play tracks that fit perfectly well on a Blu-ray disc.
