DTS:X Pro impact on a native 16 Channel MX170/MP-60
With an SSP like an MX170 or MP-60, which is capable of 16 discrete channels, or a combination of discrete and matrixed channels (not to exceed 15 plus LFE)... what does DTS:X Pro bring to the table? The configuration may be 15 speakers consisting of a traditional 7 channel base layer plus 2 wides, 4 atmos/ceiling speakers placed a bit wider than typical, and a Center Height and Center Height Rear.
The wides may end up being matrixed with the Lyngdorf algorithm, which has been reported to be quite good, with the option to go discrete wides. I don’t believe there is much discrete audio info sent to wides these days. The big question is, will DTS:X Pro likely make it worth the installation of the Center Height and Center Height Rear? What sound will DTS:X Pro likely send to the CH and CHR speakers? With a large room and tall ceilings, I would think the middle two speakers (CH/CHR) would fill in the sound field centrally. With such little reported on DTS:X Pro, I realize some of the replies may be a bit speculative.
