Haven't seen it yet, but The Peanuts Movie is also being released on UHD Blu-ray. No specs. on the audio from Fox yet. I'm hoping for Atmos on all of them.

How the heck did you get free shipping? Did you order more than one?

Listen up, studios! Dolby Atmos Lite™ print-outs must stop!!

Thanks @tjenkins95 !

Sucker for Life of Pi. Really too bad there's no 3D 4K as the 3D in that movies is great. Better yet would be an Atmos mix. $18.19 free shipping.

Looks like they only had about 12 UHD discs on the site. I clicked through all of them and searched for audio. Many do not have the UHD disc audio labeled. You could also run through the Blu-Ray disc (in the triple packs) and view the audio. All that were listed were DD 5.1 or DTS-HD. None were Atmos.

Thanks for the link still!

Hi all, I'm trying to setup a atmos 7.1.4 at home and after blowing my budget on my receiver and fronts I'm left with a very limited budget for the atmos positions. Secondly I have a vaulted ceiling so my only choices would be to mount them high on the side walls for all 4 "atmos" speakers.

My question is:
1. How important is the quality of the 4 atmos speakers? To give an idea of what I'm working with this is my current 7.1 setup.

2x energy rc-70 (lr)
Energy rc-lcr (c)
Polk rti8 (surrounds)
Klipsch rs 3 in (back surrounds)
Outlaw x12 ultra sub

As my budget is destroyed I'm thinking of getting some cheap satellites to mount, maybe some harman kardon as they are very cheap. I know this won't give the optimal experience, but given that it's mostly for ambient effects would it be serviceable? Or would it detract away from the experience?

2. I know wall mounting speakers isn't technically atmos "spec". Will I get the desired effect from wall mounting 4 speakers relatively high up (12 feet ish) and pointed down? They will be mounted about 45 degrees forward and 45 degrees back from the seating area (unless there's a better arramgement)

Thanks for your help atmos gurus!

Well IMO I think as long as the speakers you use for the height channels are powerful or resilient enough to keep up with the rest of your system at the same maximum output levels you intend to listen at then you should be happy with them. I would just look for a speaker with a decent mid/high and power rating for what you can afford. Remember they're going to be smaller speakers no matter what so your sub is going to take care of the low end for them assuming you have them crossed over high enough. I have a friend I help set up a system for who blew all his change on his receiver and bought some $50 no name outdoor speaker pairs for his height channels but his stage setup was pretty solid and quality speakers and honestly I thought it really didn't sound that bad at all. Not saying buy garbage, but it's probably not as critical as you think. I would say the placement is probably a lot more important than anything.

That being said, even though you have a vaulted ceiling it could still be possible to mount the height speakers in an optimal location if you don't mind getting creative. Whether it works for you or not is totally an opinion (I know my wife wasn't happy at first when she saw them haha) but I just installed my height speakers on my ceiling by hanging them from threaded rod so they all are hanging level. My room is also a little unorthodox since it's very short and my couch has to be up against my back wall so don't mind the placement as much but you can get the idea.

Wondering if I could get a few suggestions for (non-Atmos) movie scenes for use to test-out different surround L/R speaker positions, in advance of getting my Atmos equipment setup.

I'm switching my side surround speakers from dipoles to directs, and have a couple of different side locations (neither ideal vs the guidelines) to try out in my 7.1.4 setup. I"m not asking for placement suggestions, just good content to use for comparison of new side positions in the 7.1 subset.

thanks in advance

Of the titles they listed the audio of, none were immersive. They had other titles that had no audio listing at all. So there's a chance those will get the immersive love.

It's beyond me why Dolby doesn't offer these test tones as a download form their site. Can't imagine someone holds the rights for those pink noise mixes.

If those non-immersive titles were immersive in theatrical release, then that doesn't bode well for Fox's UHD launch titles. I'm typically not a pessimist, but I'm going to assume Fox is (again) holding back on releasing their Atmos mixes until I see otherwise.

Because they also don't want to provide tech support for a download.

It's offers no benefit over the pink noise in the AVR.

It does because the signal goes through the decoder and renderer. The AVR test signal does not.

It's not anti consumer Markus.... The comment "ugly" customers is an unfair descriptor for how they view their user base.

You know as well as I do that if they provide a download link for a file and customers can't get it to download, or burn a disc, or properly format a USB drive....... Why open yourself up as a company to such headaches.

Doesn't matter.

The files and discs aren't available to the general public.

Being critical of them as a company doesn't change the fact that 99.9999% of users have no practical utility for such tones in proper setup of their rooms...

If devices were bug free and users wouldn't make mistakes in setting them up then it wouldn't matter. We both know that this is not the case. That's why having test files matters.

In that case there shouldn't be a support nightmare waiting for them by making those test files available to the public. Again, for the remaining 0.0001% of users (in marketing speak called "multipliers") they could make them available through a 3rd party that also does the support. I'm pretty sure AVS or similar would host the files. Support is available through the forum.

The purpose of the point panner is to calculate a gain coefficient for each speaker in the output speaker layout, given an object position.

With regards to speaker layout, the point panner requires that the following conditions are satisfied in order to be able to accurately place a phantom image of the object anywhere in the room:
-- The speakers must be grouped into one or more discrete planes in the z-dimension.
-- The speakers on each plane must be grouped into one or more discrete rows in the y-dimension.
-- There must be two or more speakers on every row and there must be speakers at ������=1 and ������=−1.
-- Every speaker location must lie on the surface of the room cube, that is, either on the floor, ceiling, or walls.<<

This is in response to ITU-R BS.2076 Audio definition model, to the loudspeaker configurations described in Recommendation ITU-R BS.2051 Advanced sound system for programme production.
How could applying 1) one discrete plane in the z-dimension, with 2) one row in the y-dimension, consisting of 3) two speakers opposite of each other, enable a pointer panner to accurate place a phantom image of the object anywhere in the room?

I would say that the second condition needs to demand for at least two discrete rows so that the minimum lay-out consists of four cornered speakers in one plane....?

Edit:

And even then, does 'one plane' qualify as a 'room'? Shouldn't you have at least two planes?

Or do these conditions assume a minimum ITU 5.1 surround layer as starting point?

A good idea and understanding lies at the base of every successful project.

There's a press screening in London in early February but I am not sure I can make it. I will attend if I can and report back to the thread. It looks to be a pretty stunning presentation.

Seems a strange decision though on the face of it. Holding back while waiting for UHD made sense - kick off the new format with amazing PQ as well as amazing SQ all on one disc. But what could they be waiting for now?

As long as Dolby continues to create Atmos Demo Discs, there is one thing that would be super great for me: Instead of pink or white or some other kind of test signal noise, a full frequency sweep would be awesome for all channels. There is currently no easy way to run sweeps through the height/ceiling speakers as REW only provides 8 channels of sweeps. It would facilitate pre and post room correction analysis, accurately setting of PEQ filters where that is an option, running signal sweeps comparing all channels smoothed responses for much more accurately setting trims than using the traditional "noise" on either the current Demo disc or traditional AVR's/SSP's.

If I can dream about winning the $1.5 Billion Lottery, I can dream about this as well. And no, I did not win the Lottery because apparently you actually have to enter to win - only very, very slightly increasing the probability that actually you would win.
Dan Hitchman and dvdwilly3 like this.

Man I really did win the lottery last night.

I'm going to pickup my $4 this weekend.
I think FilmMixer probably has a better lottery than that!!!
