and this is exact what i mean, a bit shortsighted of Auro that do incloud a "ceiling" speaker in the setup as VOG, the TS, but left out the other ceiling speakers and so blocking the road for users with only ceiling speaker for immersive effects, that comes from the ceiling
I asked this because a co-worker has a TF and TR setup and wants to buy the Auro upgrade for the use of TS (VOG).
I told him this was not possible (at the moment) but would ask to be sure.
Now i am, but find this a strange thing in the Auro setup, not using TF and TR.
This guy is not willing to start using more speakers then he has now, as the only way the get VOG is put more speakers up there.
We can do a kind of combinations with a mix of Top and Height speakers a user want, exept when the TS comes into play.
Hope (for him and others) that Auro and/or D&M will correct this soon.
Think this will open the market for Auro a bit more......
