Uhh! Four days from posting and no comments yet.... That seems glorious days of THX into theaters & Home Theaters had been forgotten so fast!

My receiver Pioneer LX87 (European version) came with THX processing for audio, something which (IMHO) adds an extra feeling in surround sound. There's a true fact: since the arrival of object based surround sound, THX leave his interest on surround sound hardware, giving the only preference on certification business... So far any project for post-processing Atmos or DTS:X sound has been introducing yet. That would be interesting to see some THX touch on future Atmos based sound components (Processors/receivers) or just to see THX specifications to get the best Atmos speaker layout in a home theater room. Maybe in the future.....

I actually didn't realize until a few days ago a that the THX sound modes are not compatible with Dolby Atmos or DTS:X on home audio receivers. Quite shocked to hear this actually since I have pretty much exclusively used the THX sound modes on my Pioneer Elite receivers since the late 90's. I wish this question would have been asked in the interview as the THX processing cannot be used with any 3D or immersive sound modes. Also can these receivers be FW upgraded when THX processing does become compatible with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X in the future?
