That is good, and I am genuinely pleased that you are happy with it. I still consider it to be DOA though, for the reasons (often) stated. But, so long as you keep your current unit, or Auro...

Fair enough. (Although I did spend more than 1k - a lot more - for subs from the 'must have' brands :))

Precisely. They lead to people wasting their money. That's one of the things I'd hope to be able to prevent.

No hardware support at all for Auro from Onkyo, Yamaha, or any of the other main stream manufacturers in their 2015/16 lineup. And only from D&M if you pay $199 for it. Doesn't really seem as though...

5 new Atmos movies on Blu-ray in one month isn't too shabby.



I agree UHD will be a catalyst but the very notion that a studio will release with audio in Auro cracks me up. Auro is the format...

Brian you are trying to defend the indefensible. Controls should do what their labels say or their labels should describe what controls actually do. No other position can be defended sensibly.

Brian - the whole premise of Tom's (and yours) is incorrect. DL does correct below 20Hz. I can see it in every one of my own calibrations (my subs play flat to 10Hz) whether the auto curve or a...

Interesting point. Otherwise, how do you actually get the 150Hz filter? Why would the control say 150Hz if what it means is 'Bypass'? :confused:

Indeed - and I believe he has been answered well: his idea isn't really feasible. Hence the suggestion of a 12v trigger idea that is ;) The other possibility is USB powered fans.
