I see multiple movies called "Firestorm" when I search IMDB. Which one is he referring to?

Yes, that is one scene in that movie where the overheads have clearly defined content that lines up with the on-screen action. I used that scene to evaluate efficacy of my "fake" Atmos modules.

Almost. The 11ch limit is a hard stop. You can't do 12ch with Auro + VOG. If you use VOG you are limited to 10.1 Auro (no S.backs).

The DOLBY Atmos amp assign mode is a limited subset of 11.1ch mode. There is nothing you can do in Atmos amp assign mode that you couldn't do in 11.1ch mode. But...

No, the "Atmos" amp assign is NOT for up-firing Atmos enabled speakers. It's for the "stock" Atmos layouts -- either 5.1.2/7.1.2 with Top Middle, or 5.1.4/7.1.4 with Top Front + Top Rear.

It's not "incorrect" per se, it's that the "Dolby Atmos" amp assign mode is inflexible. It locks you into either Top Middle (one pair of overheads) or Top Front + Top Rear (two pairs) and forces you...

yeah, obviously an explicit reference signal disc (e.g. test signals for pan around room, pan overhead, etc) would be the best case scenario.

I feel like this whole surround height issue is really a matter of degree.

I really think we need a few common "reference" scenes with Atmos native content so that we can compare notes and optimize speaker positioning. For example, if everyone agrees that a specific demo...

It looks like that iNuke has DSP controls for delay, EQ etc. so it should be more than enough to get a smooth blend of the two subwoofers and give XT32 a good starting point to ice the cake. From...

Yes to different Audyssey settings -- they are all memorized by input as the default.

No to bass management. That's a global setting, other than using 2ch vs multichannel customization.

You can't do that, at least without saving/loading separate Audyssey configs. And then you'd have to switch cabling since Sub2 output would switch from SW output to VOG.

It would be much easier...

Sorry, you're right, no actual evidence of bit depth truncation. It's really about the sample frequency.

The DAC's are 192/24 so I would imagine it's easier to process at 48/24 so it's an even...
