The old PS3 "fat" did not support bitstream, but later models and the PS4 definitely will.

Make sure you are set to output bitstream, *not* PCM, and also make sure you have secondary audio set to...

Acurus was showing a 7.1.6 channel system at CEDIA, so at least one DSP manufacturer has bumped their architecture and firmware up to 14 channels. Hopefully that's a sign of good things to come...

EDIT - I see that people are reporting from CEDIA that the Acurus box is supporting 7.1.6, so at least one DSP manufacturer has moved on to 13 channels. Good news!

Not to be pedantic, but there's not really such a thing as a "7.1.4 encoded soundtrack." The mix may well have been monitored on a 7.1.4 system, but the Atmos encode is agnostic with respect to the...

This is such a frustrating advertisement from IMAX. WB *could* have released the movie in 1.85:1 (flat) in normal cinemas, but they chose to release it in Scope. They've just letterboxed out the...

I know it's at a radically higher price point, but the Datasat RS20i supports 5.1.6, despite being a DSP-based solution. So this is possible, though there may be practical cost constraints for the...
