Ass-u-ming that these aren't considered 'features' by DTS rather than rendering or upmixing bugs. Although YMMV, the lack of bass was one of the reasons I disliked Neo:6 vs. Dolby PLIIx back in the...

Don't worry, you'll get UHD Atmos of this new trilogy in progress sooner or later....like 2019 or 2020, when there's more a critical mass of UHD TVs and Atmos soundbars in Best Buy America :eek:

I read the Denon manual and it does say that for a two-channel source, it was possible to have up to "9.1 playback". However, does the same apply for a 5.1 or 7.1 source, even if there's signal...

True, but they're only rated to 80 watts. FWIW the Imagine XB are rated to 150 (which might come in handy if I ever crank up the opening scene of Unbroken), and have a flat top. They're also more...

So they're designed to top off the Imagine XB, based on the picture? I wonder if the towers in that shot are X2Ts. Looking forward to hearing some reviews of the XAs vs. the KEFs or Triads in the...
