The right amount of power is a different issue, but all the units mentioned have roughly the same power output anyway. And they will all drive cleanly reasonably sensitive speakers to the SPLs most...

As far as Bluray players are concerned, there's no such thing as Atmos. Just TrueHD. And it is inconceivable that the new units with 2.2 will not handle TrueHD properly. So I can’t personally...

I've used that dodge before with no problem. It really does seem so very very simples to me.

There must be something wrong with me - I thought T4 was pretty good fun. And I am sure I will enjoy Expendables 3 too. It can’t be Lars Von Trier and Ingmar Bergman every day of the week!

Same here. Until recently I was using M&K SS150 Tripoles and was 100% delighted with them. (M&K S150s for LCR). I only sold them because I wanted to move my surrounds to 110° (from 90°) as this would...

Hi guys. I wonder if someone could give me a heads-up with this question: I have an Oppo 93 and it feeds an Epson 5030 PJ via a Denon X5200W. In the Oppo settings I can choose 4:4:4 or 4:4:2 or RGB...

Your setup looks ideal for Atmos if you use upfiring add-on modules. I can see easily that you could accommodate one on top of each front speaker and you probably can do the same on the surrounds....

I bet you would. Did you level match the units to ±0.5dB for the test? Did you use the same content? Did you know which unit was playing at the time of the test? Were you able to switch...

Other than room EQ and any deliberate use of DSP, it is very unlikely you will hear any audible difference between the units. The amp sections can be discounted in this regard: amplifier design was...

Agreed. It seems that the superior mixing capability enables the mixers to achieve this. So even for those who don't upgrade to Atmos, there is a benefit.

What do you think is causing this? The content is PCM. It is compressed either by DTS or Dolby, losslessly. That is to say, when uncompressed, you get all of the original PCM content. So how would...

OK, I'll bite. What makes you think that a soundtrack compressed losslessly with DTS will sound any different to one compressed losslessly with Dolby? Is one 'more lossless' than the other? ;)
