Yep - if you turn off all the other speakers and listen to the Atmos Red Bull clips - there is almost nothing at all in the overhead speakers. Not even in the tunnel. I actively seek out tunnels in...

I used to use PLIIz all the time. DSU is much better IMO. With PLIIz there was just 'ambient' noise in the Height speakers. With DSU there seems to be more content in the overhead speakers that...

Thanks. Lost World really does benefit from DSU doesn't it. I think all tracks like that will, where there is already an immersive mix. Enjoy Chapter 20 of TF4!

Yes, I think your original point was well made. Zones 2 and 3 are like 'units within a unit' and if left powered on are, in fact, powered on. So it's no surprise that a unit would get warm after 48...

I’d love to see their frequency response graphs and polar responses etc - at that price those measurements must be something very special.

That "in the movie" feeling is exactly right. When I watched Jurassic Park - The Lost World last night that is precisely what I felt. DSU has, so far, exceeded my expectations.
