They would be an improvement in terms of envelopment as they are bipolar wide dispersion surrounds, but I wouldn't expect an improvement in sound quality per se. The synergy series is Klipsch entry...

No. There are no non apple devices that can do video mirroring. If that's important to you pop $100 on an Apple TV.

Thanks for the education Marc (and Roger and Sanjay too!).

What is/was the reason for the 3dB lower surround calibration? Headroom concerns? So the surrounds would only be asked to play up to...

OK, final question since we are kind of OT anyway. I've never exactly understood this "surrounds are 82dB not 85dB in cinemas" thing.

Does that relate to how the soundtracks are mixed, or how the...

Ah, thanks Marc. So the concept of bass management (meaning redirected bass, not the .1 LFE channel) until now has essentially been unique to home theater processors? So you as the mixer know...

Think of it this way: incoming content will either be native Atmos, or it won't be. If it's NOT native Atmos, then it's standard 5.1/7.1 type channel based material. If you want this non-Atmos...

Note that you cannot use "Dolby Atmos" amp assign mode though, since you are using Dolby enabled speakers (ironic but true). So you do need to use 9.1ch amp assign mode and then tell it you are...

First off, just so we are clear, the X4100 only has 7 amps built in. So in order to run 5.1.4 (9 channels) you need at least two external amp channels.
