*11.2 channels with both DSX and DTS Neo:X
In my opinion the initial concept of DSX was never meant to be 11.2. The best example being what Chris has always said: DSX only adds W+H channels...
Meaning though that if a signal (which is the case in 99% of cases) is 5.1, DSX only knows to process 9.2 (W+H). And if one wants the "full glory" of 11.2, this can only be obtained through a hybrid configuration, incorporating DSX associated with DPL IIx or DTS Neo... An experience that I personnaly made (when I had an Denon A100) and that I didn't like.
So this new DTS Neo X is really innovative per se, as we are now offered for the first time, a complete 11.x processing... And this is maybe why Onkyo limited its previous series to only 9.2 processing... But now with Neo X why not go further as this is a completely "integrated" (at least ?) 11 processing...
Now somewhere here on AVS, Roger D. has stated that the approch/process of creating the W+H channels is different between DSX and DTS. I'm though very interested to hear this new product, as in my opinion DSX 9.2 W+H gives a VERY impressing result (with the 5508), so let's see now what will be the DTS's added value with this full 11.2 processing.
