Can someone confirm for me if the 5.1.4 model has lpcm surround or not? I’d love to get surround from my pc and Nintendo switch.

So I just got off the phone with @VizioService and let just say that I'm highly disappointed. They had absolutely no clue as to what I was talking about concerning their sound bars. What makes the whole ordeal even worse is that the people that have been waiting patiently for this model number to finally arrive, are now told that it's still two month from actual retail sale. I am an adament vizio consumer, this whole botched rollout of you alls products this year has been absolutely horrible. The fact that your over seas out sourced call centers doesn't have the knowledge or the competence to convey proper marketing and sales information says a lot about you all as a company. I own an array of you alls product from the new flagship PQ65 to the crave 360 and have been happy consumer so far. With that being said I find it very disingenuous of vizio to pretty much fib to it's consumer base and act as if we don't notice the current mishaps of the company as a whole. This model was quoted for a late summer release, that would have put it between the months of late august to mid september. Know I see why some on this thread are jumping ship to other brands because they feel lied to and very disappointed with how this whole roll out was instituted. I will no longer defend you from people who have decided to hive a different product another try, being that you all as a company have hard time staying on target with the projected date of your product. Apologize for the rant but it's necessary that you know how some of your consumers and would be consumer feel about this irritating issue.

Wow, that’s a bummer. Not even in stores in time for Xmas. Ouch.

Good thing I just plopped down $1600 for a 3.1 speaker and receiver setup. Decided to skip the whole Soundbar thing since this was taking so long and we’d tried 3 other “high end” bars and been underwhelmed.. Very happy with my decision even though I’ll spend a lot more in the end, a Soundbar will never hold a candle to my full HT setup!

U know I'm beginning to feel that by the time u release the 5.1.4 - CES 2019 will arrive & all the big Major Companies such as $ony, Samsung & LG will release their new 2019 Dolby Atmos/DTS X soundbars!!! I don't understand why u've delayed this product for so long especially after Black Friday 2018/Holiday Shopping - Business wise it makes no sense? U surely must be thinking the same thing as I am? Your product might just fail
($$$) b4 it even comes out?

Folks, the Netflix App on ANY VIZIO TV DOES NOT output Dolby Atmos, Just the Vudu one. Are you guys buying it for what??

That article only talks about the 5.1.2. I really want to know about the 5.1.4. Hopefully now that it is available there will be more coming out about it.

That's my concern. I've been considering the Vizio system now that it's $299, but what if they come with something on CES that has both Atmos and DTS:X? I don't see that many options on soundbars with real surround speakers like this one that provide both Atmos and DTS:X for Vizio's price range.

Question: If I am using a PS4 in the bedroom to play BR discs and set it to Bitstream and it sends the True HD signal, can the soundbar decode it and utilize the Atmos effects or does the source unit have to decode for the 5.1.2 soundbar?

Nakamichi Shockwafe 9.2 at $1,100 is getting Atmos support by Dec 31st via free firmware update. Firmware also adds Dolby Vision passthrough.

I picked one up last night for 299$! For the price it sounds great. No issues getting an Atmos signal from my X930e Vudu app or the Apple TV 4K.
