As has been reported on this forum and AVForums, the STR-DN1080 does not allow DTS-X to play properly if using Atmos upfiring speakers with the FD setting selected. Some have recommended either manually changing to FH when watching DTS-X content or leaving it on FH. For those who have done the latter, have you noticed any significant quality differences with setting the upfiring speakers to FH? Should they be recalibrated after doing this or leave the existing calibration settings as is?
Lastly, I do like how the Dolby Surround setting fills the sound field with non-Atmos content. My favorite thing about Atmos isn't the specific height sounds (although those are great), but instead the feeling of being within a 360 sound bubble. If using the Dolby Surround setting, does it have any negative impact on DTS-X mixes or does it turn off for those?
I appreciate any feedback.
