Comparing the Yamaha DSP on the straight 7.1 track to the Atmos decoded version was about as much of a no-brainer as you'd expect. The HD3 DSP may be amazing at pulling the height of the soundfield...

I don't know about 11 channels, assuming you mean of amplification. I personally wouldn't want all 11 in one amp, much less a receiver's amp, anyways. I imagine we'll get more and more...

What I really want to know is exactly what metadata is in the Atmos-enabled TrueHD streams. Those papers SoundChk gave me will at least lead me in the right direction if not answer that question...

So far I haven't seen anyone explain anything about how the technology actually works. I've mostly gotten "no, it can't do that", "that's not how the codec works", or "there's no point in having...

What kind of speakers are we talking here? In-walls that have a built-in sub? Or are you talking about a stand-alone sub?

Eh, maybe. I think AVS is too unorganized for something like that. It's more for general discussion than it is figuring things out. It's a pro and a con though. There's a good atmosphere, despite...

Weird. I seem to recall a setting on the 2040 to have power for the USB port either only on when the AVR was on or on all the time. Though I can't recall if that was only for the rear USB port,...

You guys think angle incorporation wouldn't make a difference, more power to you. All I'm trying to figure out is, specifically, what metadata is in the Atmos enabled codec.
