Also, I am working on finalizing a purchase of a 32 channel Trinnov Altitude processor, along with JBL inwalls and revel inceiling speakers to complete a 19.1.12 setup for optimal Atmos/DTS-X playback. Dts-x pro is also expected to be released for the Trinnov later this year, so the limit of 7.1.4 for DTS-x will hopefully be a thing of the past!
Hey, I've often noticed you and I have been cycling through many of the same processors so I thought I'd try and give some peace of mind.
I've only had my Trinnov a week. Received last Friday. I absolutely recognize and relate to the fact that, in many cases, we are talking a drastic difference in price. I think in a room that allows for optimal speaker placement and acoustical treatment you would be hard pressed to justify the extra money required for the Trinnov. I don't believe there is enough of a raw acoustical benefit. However, where the Trinnov shines and where it has clear acoustical advantage in my opinion is in a room that needs help. Which, in my experience is most peoples rooms including mine. Speakers aren't/can't be placed optimally including Atmos and subwoofers. Room isn't acoustically perfect or designed to be. In those cases the optimizer and remapping features as well as the bass management tools are far and away above anything anyone else does. In addition, the fact that as codecs and enhancements change many are just a simple feature upload from Trinnov is a tremendous bonus. For example, they came out with a new audio curve that I heard about. All it required was an email to Trinnov support and leaving my unit on for a few hours and bingo they uploaded it. They also can see and make changes/suggestions to your config on the fly, any time, any day. All that means a lot to me as far as not having to buy a new processor every 2 years. It took a bit of blind faith to finally make the investment but I have absolutely no regrets.
