No, a fellow member of AVS, can't remember his name.wow that far back eh? where'd you get that spreadsheet? dealer intel?
Dolby has a new mandate, that forces the manufacturers to upmix Dolby soundtracks only with a Dolby upmixer (Dolby Surround upmixer / DSU) or with a manufacturer's proprietary upmixer, but DTS Neural:X and Auromatic are no longer allowed to upmix any Dolby soundtrack.beyond atmos+allm i haven't really read up on many other things. what's the deal with upmixing for newer model vs. older models? what's changed?
Upmixing is not a new format that came after Atmos, is not better than native Atmos*, but can be used when a native 3D soundtrack (Atmos/DTS:X/Auro-3D) is not available but you want to use the overhead/height speakers - those would go silent if no upmixer is used.as i understand it after atmos came along everything is now "dolby surround" including all upmixes into height channels right?
*there are exceptions...
