Ahh, just when I'm being forced into the market when my Yamaha 3800's HDMI died. ......... Atmos comes along? It'll be some simulated home theater new upgrade in the next few years I'm sure
Then again, barely anyone has 7.1.. Who would have a speaker ring? Or will that just be fancied up and given the atmos name for homes?
The audio is insane too. It really blows away the HD DVD, although I only had the xbox addon for it. The video is also somewhat cleaner in season 1. Season 3/4 look very VERY good. A noticable upgrade from season 1/2.
All I can say is wow I'm so happy now.
A lot of stores in my area are already starting to push Blu-ray really hard. The front 2 rows at Fry's are Blu-ray. Best Buy is also putting Blu-ray up 'front'. I'm also noticing there are more people browing them than DVD's now.
The tide has turned for sure.
I don't think it's that bad at all, I notice a TON of detail that's simply not there on the DVD, and the color definition wow.
Also, the sound is far, far better. I can make out much more with the lossless than on the DVD's, or even when I saw it in the theater.
