+1 but ;), these new object and multi-channel layered surround sound formats make M/C music listening an amazing "in the concert hall" experience that stereo simply can't replicate. Spending the...

No, they didn't send it but to be fair, I did not request anything but the Auro 3D Demo. I do find it amusing that Ass Whoopin was done by a Finnish woman ... :confused: :p

That remindes me of the...

What is wrong with you Nalleh? The ever evolving "test protocal" is to listen to the entire film with just the height speakers engaged. You are to note what is missing by observing what is missing,...

Yes, they are very accommodating. On the demo disk try out the Passing Tractor clip and the Jennifer Batten song. Actually, it's all good. :)

I am envious of your new Sony PJ but I'm too cheap to pay the current toll. 4K and 3D audio have quite a bit in common and it's all about priorities. Both are sparse on source material but can make...

HDMI bitstream the audio from the Bluray player to the AVR/SSP. The processor decodes the Atmos/Auro. Atmos/Auro capable processors also use DSU (Dolby Surround Upmixing) and Auro-matic (Auro 3D) to ...

I don't believe that surround backs are a good idea unless you have enough space behind the back row of seats. I did not have enough space because my back row is only 2' off of the back wall. All of...

I appreciate the comments but honestly think that would be a negligible gain move. I have used very capable surround backs for years and always felt they were unnecessary. Eliminating them sealed the...

My room is aysmetrical and so the surrounds (center of the coax) are approx 4ft below and 8ft and 3ft respectively inboard of the surrounds. No, I don't think the distance is perfect but it is good....

Of course it's 7.1.4 max. In a room the size of mine (3600 CF), more than 4 ceiling speakers is (IMHO) excessive. Also, for music having capable speakers that are a reasonable timbre/efficiency match...

I had a 7.1 setup prior to my Marantz AV-7702 Pre-Pro. I went to a 5.1.4 Atmos setup as the limit was 9 channels (or 10 if using Auro Center Height VOG). I believe only one Denon and one Marantz...

Thank you :)

The only "good" answer for multiple rows is more height speakers. Until more affordable ;) SSP/AVR's support more channels, I'm afraid it is a heavy lift to properly outfit for...
