Oh ISWYM. The general delay induced by the 88A... are you sensitive to 16ms of lipsynch delay? 1 frame is roughly 40ms, so we're talking of a potential error of less than half a frame (at the...

OK - thanks to everyone for the replies. The point you make above is interesting and would steer me towards the smaller Di5s since good directionality is important with Atmos. However the point made...

Dolby themselves say it is hard to get Atmos 'wrong' and the fact there is such a wide range of permissible locations plays to that I guess. If you position your speakers anywhere within the...

That's related to the upfirers. Physical speakers are suggested to be 'full bandwidth'. Of course, in a bass managed system with competent subwoofers, 'full bandwidth' can mean a response of...

Two 88As is still a huge bargain when one compares their cost to the next equivalent 16 channel unit with Dirac Live though.



I can see problems with that - bass management for example.

More information is needed. How are you connecting the 8802 to the 88A and on to the amps for example? Did you set up the 88A correctly with the utility tool? Have you run DLCT yet?
