Also, maybe the sound designers decided that doing too much from the overhead speakers would come off as gimmicky similar to exaggerated 3D effects in movies. You've stated in the past how amazing...

From my talks with them at CEDIA discs with Auro that are being released later this year are embedded into a DTS-HD Master Audio container.

I was referring to my current setup. It has taken years to get what I have and dial it in to the degree I have. So essentially just walking away from stuff like forums and just enjoying what I have.

I thought the movie demos for Atmos were a joke at best. The only exception was the Harmon demo, which I feel wasn't a realistic home theater demo by any stretch of the imagination. The only...

What do you mean by setting it up?? Seems simple enough, basically 4-5 new channels. Doesn't seem any harder than Atmos for setup. Or are you talking about capture?
