Spent quite a bit of time looking at possible upgrades to the Micca speakers, and I kept coming back to the Klipsch KS-7502-THX Ultra2's.

They list for $1000 each, which I know is crazy expensive, but it turns out NewEgg is running a shell shocker price on them of "just" $349.99 with free shipping right now. I stared at the screen for what seems like an eternity and finally caved and 4 of those suckers are on the way. I'll be sure to report of how they sound compared to the Micca's.

My wallet is really hurting right now. I'm going to step away from Amazon and eBay for a while now I think...

Not sure where to ask this (sorry if wrong place.)

I am finding it hit or miss in getting Atmos and DTS:X blurays from Netflix. I added a bunch of movies that are listed as blurays that have Atmos or DTS:X to my queue but only about half of them, so far, actually have had it. For example Goosebump had Atmos, but Hunger Games Mocking Jay part 2 did not. Crimson Peak had DTS:X but America Ultra and The Last Witch Hunter did not.

On the ones that have worked, my AVR actually listed Atmos or DTS:X as the source, so I do not have a set-up problem.

Are there different versions of blurays and perhaps some rental disc do not have it or are the bluray lists for Atmos and DTS:x, like http://www.dolby.com/us/en/experienc...streaming.html wrong on some listings?

If the studio is Lions Gate then no lossless audio on rentals.
So yes, rentals are different than retail for some studios..

Thanks. Do you know of any lists that break it down to which studios would or would not have it in the rental discs?

What do you guys think is the best bang for the buck receiver for atmos right now? 7.1.4 powering only the ceiling speakers off the receiver and using outboard amps for all others. Using mostly for movies in a dedicated room.


I have been looking at the yamaha a3050, but open to other ideas.

Thanks, looks like lots of options. This will make it tons easier in the future to connect the speakers to the AVR. I always hate doing it when I change receivers.

I use these BFA banana plugs:

12 pairs:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=sr_1_1&sr=8-1

7 pairs:
http://www.amazon.com/Eastone%C2%AE-...%AE+EB534AE%2C

They have plastic handles so a dangler can't short, they won't become loose in the socket like some banana plugs, they're easy to install, they ship quickly, and their very cost effective. Also, the plastic handles are a smaller diameter than some other plugs, making them easier to grip among a whole line of them on the rear of the avr.

I have no association with the company other than as a customer.

Can anyone recommend an Atmos encoded BluRay movie to test out my new Marantz 7010 and 7.2.4 setup?
Preferably action or good sci-fi and one I can get at Bestbuy?
Thanks.

John Wick
Mad Max Fury Road
Roger Waters The Wall
People here say that "In The Heart of the Sea" has a good Atmos mix. The movie itself got pretty mediocre reviews, though.

You can rent the Atmos version of Gravity from 3D Blu-Ray Rental. It's called the Diamond Luxe Edition.

Mad Max Fury Road -have not seen one that tops this for overall Atmos effect

Goosebumps - best for height effects

It sounds like Deadpool is an Atmos winner, but only the UHD Blu-ray has an immersive track.

I'll echo Goosebumps and, of course, Gravity... Gravity (in the now hard to find Diamond Luxe pack) definitely is one that should be used for any friend or family demo. If they can't tell it's in Atmos, they are deaf. It also utilizes the Front Wides to great effect with off-screen dialog placement as well. If you fail in your quest for the Gravity SE, then I'm sure Warner Brothers is prepping a re-release for UHD Blu-ray with Atmos.

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

Can anyone confirm this:
If we have a 4k disc, played in a 4k HT system sans a 4k display, I will still enjoy the same sound quality, Atmos and all?
That may be one incentive to get in on the 4k scene, even though I don't have a 4k display yet.. there seems to be a push to equip only the 4k discs with Atmos / DTS-X.
Cheers

Pete, the short answer is, "Yes."

The K8500 will put Atmos out over either of the HDMI outputs. I believe that will be true of the other UHD players as well.

You just need to be prepared for a different color space on your 1080 display.

I had the K8500 and did not care for it. I found that there was a black crush that I could not get corrected.

As always, YMMV...

My understanding is yes, however the studios have the ability to prevent there from being playback. I expect they will exercise that power in the future when there is wider adoption of 4K displays.

I agree, I paid more for this title since it's an import but didn't regret it one bit because the Atmos track is so good.

Why would they? It limits sales. No one ever implemented the flag that prevented Blu Ray from being down-rezzed for output to an SD display.

100% goes to DeadPool...


Even the opening credits have insane Atmos! The drywall is flaking off the ceiling! I'm only 10 minutes in and the PQ and SQ are phenomenal!
Forget about Gravity for Atmos and Life or Pi (or worse yet Revenant) for HDR.....Clear winner right here!

Before anyone even asks. No I have not checked the BD to see if it's Atmos.
Ha! Good to know!... the calibrator just left and I am all set up for 11.6.8 Atmos with Trinnov Altitude. Have not watched an Atmos movie yet... this looks to be #1!

Goodbye to a great audio and video genius and writer... JOHN GANNON. I enjoyed your friendship, wit and a nice long run we took around Indianapolis at CEDIA years back... and for buying my Runco 980 Ultra years back... you saved my ass! Rest in peace.
