I suppose it depended on where the bass from those speakers was going WRT the remapping, from more to less bass capable speakers (and the target curves getting screwed up on the bass might have done...

As you might remember, I stopped by the Alcons room at 2 AM, and heard the results after Mark S. tuned the target curve upon diagnosis of the problem. The lack of proper BM would screw up the sound...

In my humble opinion :) you'd be overspending, unless you're planning to do active speakers, absolutely have to have a multiple speaker array for applying upmixers, or are one of those guys that...

He could also buy a used class of 2014 (pre-DTS:X) or 2015 AVR or pre/pro that hasn't gotten the DTS:X upgrade, and use it as a dedicated processor to force a DTS-MA soundtrack to ignore the DTS:X...

I have no idea how many Datasat processors have been sold, but based on what I've heard anecdotally, probably something like 400 to 500 Trinnov Altitudes have been sold since their initial release....

I slightly regret not pulling the trigger, but I had an offer on a very lightly used RS600 that was too good to refuse. Regardless I'm glad you were able to find a buyer.

Good thing you have an Altitude. Trump promised high tarrifs on imports from Mexico and China. I hope he doesn't apply it to products from France. Imagine the Altitude at a 45% tariff :eek:
