Except for the SBA, which is pretty straightforward, I didn't see any acoustical design in the diagram. I'm guessing that once the system is up and tuned, Mike can start playing with panels to see...

Yeah, and once you get used to it, feels kinda odd without it. That was used by Walter Murch for his Oscar winning mix for Apocalypse Now, in the scene where the tiger jumps out of the bushes. Right...

Those locations place the subs in modal nulls. You can't excite a room mode when the source of bass (subwoofer) is in a null. If you want to try something simple with a pair of subs, place them at...

Keep in mind that his entire back wall is a giant absorber, which will eat up a significant amount of bass. If he had done a double bass array, he'd be using half his drivers to actively cancel bass...

Yup, loved how the soundtrack would switch from a normal sounding mix (when he was home) to an immersive bubble of sound (when he was deployed), which made me crave going back to the combat scenes. I...

Right, whatever the current state of consumer AVRs and pre-pros, that's what DTS:X will be locked to (just as Atmos was last year at launch). Once chipmakers/manufacturers are able to implement...

Even if they do include positional rendering, I'd be surprised if they didn't present some sort of speaker layout, even if it is only intended as a starting point (rendering assumptions).

Since when has this hobby been about "need"? The option to add speakers is just that, an option. If you believe that going beyond 2 or 4 height speakers puts you into diminishing returns territory,...

Of course, I was joking. But if you're not, then you just made my day. Good luck on the new venture. Looking forward to launch (and eventual open house).

No. I had gone up to Ray's place a few weeks earlier and one of the things we spent time attempting was subwoofer optimization using REW and a miniDSP 2x4 and lots of trial & error. The 5 subs were...

Depends on who you asked at the meet. Several of us heard immediate and very noticeable improvements, as though details snapped into critical focus. Couple folks were straining to hear differences.

Calling it "rumored" isn't acting asthough it was true; quite the opposite.

Thanx for the info. I was using the word "rumored" just to be extra careful, but good to see that it confirmed (at least for Japan).

Folks were asking if Dirac did before/after measurements, like you can with your video calibration tools. The answer to that question isn't REW, the answer is no (for understandable reasons).

Did someone from Denon confirm to you that offering a DTS:X firmware upgrade would be a net revenue increase for the company or did you come up with that on your own?

PLIIz is surround processing technology. TrueHD is lossless data packing technology. They're unrelated.
