John lived in Detroit about 30 minutes away. Just a nice guy. I'd see him now and again and chatted via Facebook.

He passed from an acute asthma episode... and donated his organs.

In the pic you posted, 5.1.4 as that's all the speakers you have. 7.1.4 is max native for DTS-X and Atmos is maxed out at 22.1.10 native (I believe)?

You need to add more speakers~
