It's an even more unfair comparison because if you dig around way in the past to discussions of both that disc and the DTS-only version of The Haunting, they sound better not because they were...

I'm watching it now on the 2-d version and you're spot on. Right before the Pan logo appears, the theme starts playing in my left rear surround... Then a few seconds later starts in the mains. Very...

Yeah, my thinking was that if you had an object set to "snap to speaker" for a location where there is no speaker assigned, maybe it snaps to the nearest adjacent speaker in that plane rather than...

I may be off-base here, but couldn't the lack of imaging between TM and SB for that test tone be because that particular object is encoded to be exclusive, i.e. locked to that general channel...

I had front heights up from my previous DPL-IIz setup and added top mids in my room. When I changed to Atmos, I was afraid I would lose that big sound that DPL-IIz gave my front soundstage, because...

I'm running OWM5 speakers as top mids... which I think is a different situation than running them behind the MLP a bit as you are. They are essentially overhead enough that mic placement to keep...

I was never a fan of Neo:X because it tended to give things a weird metallic sound in the highs. It's hard to explain. They were just harsh, though if you're using THX's filter, maybe that...

I would say that yes, it will change the way you hear movies... but not just because of the overheads, because it isn't that simple. Part of it is that it sets the mixers free to place sounds...

When the movie is playing, hit Option, then Settings, then set Audio to Bitstream (Direct). See if that's the issue. Or if there is a setting for secondary audio, make sure that is off.
