Yes, unfortunately, but the All-16 does not sound as good as Storm to me and the All-16 lacks the flexibility of the Storm.
The Storm has more expandability but the Altitude 16 is arguably more flexible.
Does the information about Auro 3D V2 actually already exist? What has been changed or adapted?
What are you referencing regarding Auro3D V2? AFAIK
Auro3D v2 is simply Auro3D 13.1 and 11.1(7+4) which is supported by Storm. Can you provide a link?

All it takes is one source to start the rumor, and it will multiply. The power of suggestion and expectation bias. I don't doubt that
truly perceived a difference, because I did too... until I investigated further and it was psychoacoustics at play.
"And at double the price it should sound better." This may have been the start the narrative that the A32 was audibly superior/different compared to the A16.
Two dealers who have Storm and Trinnov also told me that. I also wanted to buy an All-16, the dealer told me, take off the Trinnov glasses and compare. So I came to Storm.
I can see the dealer preferring to sell A32s and Storms over the A16 as they are expandable and the A16 is not.
How does Trinnov explain the big price difference between All-16 and All-32?
Relative to the Altitude 32, cosmetics are simplified, with a lower cost front panel. It gives up little functionally - there's no channel count upgradeability, second analog input or digital outputs.
