Seems it can handle the formats fine: they're either operational (Atmos) or being worked on (DTS:X). They wouldn't be working on implementing the impending DTS:X format if the DSP chip couldn't...

Return on investment is irrelevant when there is no investment to begin with. And the reason studios aren't putting Auro mixes on Blu-ray is because there just aren't enough consumer Auro decoders.

February or later? So some of the 2015 DTS:X models won't see DTS:X in 2015? The higher end models must be using a different DSP solution than the lesser models.

Sony Pictures is releasing a few catalogue titles in October re-mixed in Atmos. Wouldn't be unreasonable to ass-ume that this could coincide with Sony Electronics licensing Atmos for their receivers.

Absolutely. 80Hz has a wavelength of about 14 feet. IF that is the crossover point, then delaying the sub by 7 feet (from its current setting) will put it out of phase with the main speakers at the...

I'm not there to see how you have things wired, so I cannot determine whether there is something amiss with your AVR or your measuring kit or whether it is operator error.

Since it had already been established that sub/speaker interaction wasn't responsible for the modal dip at 58Hz, why did you think that adjusting the sub/speaker interaction would change it?

That's the way I understood that statement. In the 3 years that Atmos has been in theatres, one of the byproducts has been more aggressive/adventurous mixes (not to mention more 7.1 Blu-rays). So...

Pretty good list for such a fledgling format, at least compared to the competing immersive formats. Seems the pace might be picking up, with 3 releases in October and another 3 in November.

Does the cinema version merely have more pre-determined locations to choose from or can the cinema calibrators enter the azimuth & elevation information of the actual speaker locations?
