It was an 11.2 system I believe with the Triads.
Yeah, I am not knocking the processor, really can't tell from the demo. The demo was horrible! Though I heard good demos elsewhere, so there was no limitation on Datasat.
However, it is also not the Dirac, though they are still using the older version which processes at 48kHz - they are planning an upgrade sometime next year (from what I was told). Dirac properly used is fantastic, and by far my favorite room correction system to date - so I doubt it was that.
The engineers I spoke to at the show were not very knowledgeable either. The smart guys must have stayed home.
I did spend some time with Theta and the new PR3/Dirac and liked what I heard. Then again it was two-channel and on the Aerials.
Would need to hear more from the Datasat to comment, though I did think their choice of material to show was also REALLY bad. It started out with a very poor "pop" recording which was horribly compressed in dynamic range. The piece from Prometheus was horrible. The piece from Skyfall was better, though the bass management of the system was really way off and very poorly integrated with the other speakers.
I think their design philosophy was fine, though the execution a bit ham-handed.
Just my 2 cents from a 15 minute demo and 20 minute discussion with the engineers at the show.
