Can’t wait to watch it!

Blade Runner 2049 has far fewer moments of crazy bass, but when it hits it's nuts too. The Atmos in BR2049 is the best I have ever heard, and the picture quality is one of the best I've seen too. It is the only movie that causes one of my ceiling speakers to make the HVAC (that the speaker sits right next to) rattle, and it does it quite a few times which gives you an idea of how much more content is put in the ceiling in that movie. Annoying rattle though, I'm surprised that the over all bass has never caused that but a little in ceiling speaker does.



BR is the only time I have thought, wow those overheads are LOUD.



Check out the 4K of Fury. The cannon fire is insane and the bass combined with the surround field will make you feel like bullets are ripping right through you.



As for older movies, check out the 4K Matrix. The Atmos is top 5-10 ever, and if you turn up the bass a bit it's great too while the picture quality for an "older" movie is fantastic.



Terminator Genysis in Atmos is underrated, I don't hear it talked about much but lots of very intense sound and bass.



And then of course there are the classic 5 star bass movies...



Hmmm I seem to be focused much more on the sound here...


Which 5 are those?

BR2049 - watched a portion of this a few days ago. It’s the first movie that made me turn my system down. The opening was rattling my house a part.

My wife and I finally got around to watching A Quiet Place (with BEQ) and it reminded me why I stretched to purchase the Duchess of Boom (Cap 1400).


That was probably the best audio experience I have had in my home theater.....the Atmos was amazing (especially scenes where there were things happening above the characters)
The bass was superb with different textures especially in the latter portions of the story.
I was impressed with the punch of footsteps and gun fire and the floor shudder at times


My wife even said that was the best our theater has ever sounded and admitted that she was impressed


I had been saving for a long time to reach this type of performance from a sub and Jeff really brings the goods!


If you have not seen the movie, it was well written, great acting, and properly built tension throughout.....highly recommended.

Ahhhhh gotcha. HB2 is getting a 4k release soon! I’ll check those out.

I was just watching Suicide Squad. There’s some rumbling in there.

Some of the 4.75 rated movies are subjectively better than some of the 5.0 rated movies IMO so check out those too, especially the all time bass classic The Incredible Hulk. Other stand outs are the first How to Train Your Dragon, War of the Worlds (picture quality isn't good and it's not scope which sucks), Dredd, and maybe the best worst movie but amazing sound/bass/picture quality movie of all time: Jupiter Ascending.

Olympus Has Fallen has a scene (Washington Monument) that is the only scene ever that has tripped my breaker while NOT during a demo (including the intro to Edge of Tomorrow), just normal movie watching. It's because it's so long, that rumble just keeps going and going...

Flight of the Phoenix will open some eyes because while it does have great extension the most impressive scene IMO is the barrel roll plane scene which has a massive hump centered at 32 hz. Yes, 32 hz. It is my belief that many would think that the content would be centered much, much lower.

Watching the first race scene in Ready Player One was a religious experience. I’ve never felt ULF/LFE like that before and combined with the image, Atmos, and general mayhem - it was awesome. I was stunned.

What other scenes have visual and sonic impact like that? What else has the total package of

1. ULF/LFE
2. Stunning Image
3. Immersive Sound
4. Aggressive Sequence

Anybody? I didn’t even feel Jurassic Park dig as deep as the swinging cannon balls in Ready Player One.

I ran the sequence for my wife and her statement was “I can’t watch an entire film with stuff that intense.”

That’s a good word for it. Intense. What else is out there?

I’ve heard the opening plane scene in Overlord is killer. I’ll check it out next.

Great list updated almost daily and lots of data, plots and in-depth discussions about Movies with killer Bass content. Anybody with Subs like "JTR" makes needs to keep this Thread bookmarked.

I was getting 9db variation as shown in one of the attached pics, the other is what ARC doing its work on my subwoofers. In REW shown at MLP, the green line is peq only without any ARC. The blue is ARC and PEQ. And red is ARC and no PEQ. I wonder if I should let ARC just handle frequencies above my crossover point and let MiniDSP alone handle subwoofer frequencies. With ARC and PEQ’s doing different things to my graph, from what I’ve gathered, perhaps I should focus on getting my graph as straight as possible w/ PEQ’s alone?

It's time to learn to do a proper screen capture of the REW graphs...

Click on the camera icon. set the image width to 1000(what I use) and add a title to the screen. Then enter a save as name for the screen.

It's important to post graphs that are clear and to the point. Presentation is everything.

Thanks for having me and my wife over to experience your theater in action. Enjoyed listening to those dual S1s and that movie Overlord has tons of good ULF bass.

Last 2 weeks, I watched Pacific Rim Uprising, Mission Impossible Fall and Deep Water Horizon. I wasn't that impressed the first time (with regular speakers) watching them. This time it was much much more satisfying. I know you also have JTR 212 speakers.

Chucky, do you have access to a 4k UHD player that you could test physical media? I was wondering if you would get even more out of it if you experienced truly lossless audio from a very competent player (oppo, high end Panasonic)? I have done some back to back tests with stuff that is streamed and DL'd off the internet and the 4k UHD's blow them out of the water. I wonder if you are losing anything streaming from a computer/device??

I can’t imagine streaming media that’s not a direct rip holding a candle to physical media. Streaming media is often lossy, while physical media is lossless.

Greg,

I don't have a 4k UHD player but I did just get a media streaming player that can play 4K content.

The stuff I have, including the bass demo clips you heard while you were here, all contain the original lossless audio. In fact, many Blu Ray titles have the exact same audio tracks as the 4K UHD counterparts if they are both object-based surround.

Speakers: L/C/R: JTR Neosis 212HT. Surrounds: Jamo C103, KEF Q100, Polk Audio RTiA3.
Subwoofer: JTR Captivator 4000ULF.
AVR: Denon AVR-X4400H. TV: Samsung UN75NU8000FXZA.

I have the same bass demo clips and they aren't nearly as impressive as the real deal. Not sure if the Oppo-205 has anything to do with it, but I stream them through it anyways. I should have brought it over! I would love to see the real deal on that system!

I only own a couple blu ray discs cause I stream/use my cable provider. the paid for discs I do own are a good 3-6db louder and way better dynamically. streaming just isnt same as paid for recordings from the very small use I have.

I do want to point out that HT experience with HE speakers may be different from regular speakers. I found out about this after getting the JTR 212HTs... I have been re-watching the movies that I saw since getting the 4000ULF but before the JTR speakers.

Last 2 weeks, I watched Pacific Rim Uprising, Mission Impossible Fall and Deep Water Horizon. I wasn't that impressed the first time (with regular speakers) watching them. This time it was much much more satisfying. I know you also have JTR 212 speakers.

Click on the camera icon. set the image width to 1000(what I use) and add a title to the screen. Then enter a save as name for the screen.

It's important to post graphs that are clear and to the point. Presentation is everything.
Thanks, I didn’t know it was possible to take computer screenshot of REW measurements. Good to know, as I’m still a newbie at the software but I already find it indispensable!

The pleasure was all mine. It was a fun time indeed. Insane movie too (in a good way).

I don't want to get into the specifics. However, I know when playing the media with the Oppo 205 / HTPC / media streamer in a full fledged HT, the audio signal is bit-streamed (pass-thru) to the AVR to be decoded. Therefore, there isn't any audio difference as long as the media has as the same audio as the physical source.

A 4K movie streamed from Amazon or whatever does not contain the same lossless audio as the 4K UHD Blu Ray.

Yes the REW is indeed indispensable especially for those looking to take the audio in their HT to the next level. I think many HT professionals are losing business because of it

You can also install a screen capture software on the laptop/computer you use to view REW measurements. I use ScreenHunter 6.0 Free for that.

I like the green graph better. Which one is that? It also looks like the ARC is not doing what it says it will do on "Target"...

Let's look at it this way...

Playing Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon CD and a wav file of the same CD on a Xbox One S should sound exactly the same.

yep, as long as you have your device/player/software/settings correct, and the sound file data is set to 'passthru', then the AVR will do its job correctly. aka ATMOS/DTSHD will be the same as when coming from a 'physical' source/disc.
online streaming media is often re-compressed prior or realtime to adapt to user's bandwidth which means sound data as well can be degraded...

I’ll look into that tool too.

Thanks, the green graph is 3 PEQ’s I applied in different frequencies to flatten the curve. Right, it was dissapointing what ARC did to the response of the subs below 30hz. I may try raising ARC’s Minimum Eq. Frequency to 120hz so that would prevent ARC from applying any EQ. to subs. Alternatively I heard several suggestions of first running ARC while restoring MiniDSP’s configuration to default, as if I didn’t have a MiniDSP in my system. Then after ARC does it’s thing, I can apply any additional PEQ’s as needed. Then finally importing them back into MiniDSP. Then I can keep my MiniDSP settings without ARC trying to flatten the response. Theoretically this sounds good, just hope it works when I try it.

I’m still trying to figure out all these EQ software out. Wish there was a button to push to just get subs sounding perfect without stepping into a rabbit hole...

So many movies I'm putting on hold to watch for the first time because I want to get these subs first. I know Jeff is playing catch up since his return but my antsy pants made me send another email just in case the first one got lost in the chaos. My current subs had enough and want to retire but can't until their replacements show up.

Watching the first race scene in Ready Player One was a religious experience. I’ve never felt ULF/LFE like that before and combined with the image, Atmos, and general mayhem - it was awesome. I was stunned.

What other scenes have visual and sonic impact like that? What else has the total package of

1. ULF/LFE
2. Stunning Image
3. Immersive Sound
4. Aggressive Sequence

Anybody? I didn’t even feel Jurassic Park dig as deep as the swinging cannon balls in Ready Player One.

I ran the sequence for my wife and her statement was “I can’t watch an entire film with stuff that intense.”

That’s a good word for it. Intense. What else is out there?

I’ve heard the opening plane scene in Overlord is killer. I’ll check it out next.

You have received several great suggestions that I love as well!


Specifically, the opening scene of 2049 where K is landing his ship at the farmer's place. You can hear the ship circle around ABOVE you as it lands. Love that scene. The rest of the movie is a sonic treat in both bass and immersion as well.


Interstellar - good movie, great soundtrack. The Black Hole scene is incredibly immersive and will take your house down if you are not careful. Several other really immersive scenes in this one.


Hacksaw Ridge - not an outstanding ATMOS movie but the "softening of the ridge" scene is demo worthy. It illustrates the "violence" of JTR subs which I believe comes from the speed and agility of the JTR driver/Amp pairing.
