FWIW, I watched 'Blade' last night with DSU. Once again, it sounded fabulous - better than I have ever heard in my room. The immersion is just so exceptional with those 4 overhead speakers. Every...

Dropouts (On Total Recall 2012). It seems to be player-dependent. My Oppo 93 (latest FW) will not play the disc, yet my ancient Panasonic Dm35 (ancient FW) plays it flawlessly.

Sure - I will give Neo:X a try if I do install the wides and it would be a good test to compare that with DSU. I have nothing against Neo:X - it's DSX that I really don't like.

Dolby have never supported Wides so don't hold your breath for it. The 'wides' that are used with Atmos aren't the 'wides' that DSX and Neo:X use, but more like extended fronts.
