Hahaha. It's somewhat at odds with my pragmatic, 'pro-audio' stance that I usually espouse and promote though. $2,000 HDMI cable anyone? ;)

You are right of course. Not to mention that Atmos plays right into one of the core beliefs of the entertainment industry: money. Atmos mixes are easier to accomplish, so take less time and thus cost...

Very true. I'd imagine that most people would put Datasat and Trinnov into the "high end" category and both are embracing immersive audio. Not to mention that, in addition to the "mainstream"...

I think you've made it very clear that you do not care for Atmos. I wouldn't try to persuade anyone to like something that they don't instinctively like. My point is that I am fairly sure that you...
