    Advanced Atmos Configuration Help Needed

    You're confused? The "many reasons" I was trying to avoid talking about are because I could go on and on... Until quite recently I had two separate sets of 4 speakers mounted on my ceiling for a while. One set was 4 rather good largish speakers that I mounted up there, driven by two separate...

    Advanced Atmos Configuration Help Needed

    I am the wrong guy to ask about this, for many reasons, but one of the main ones is I don't know what's "best". The other side of it, and you'll see/hear this a lot, is that it's really hard to do Atmos poorly. It's pretty friendly really, though all the official data etc. might seem...

    Advanced Atmos Configuration Help Needed

    I doubt you will have volume problems with the SVS Elevations, especially when they're used for height/ceiling Atmos speakers. They are not "cheaply-built" speakers just because they're small. AFAIK, SVS offer some form of in-home trial in the U.S., with return privileges. I'm in Canada, may be...

    ^ I can't even stand a coffee table in between me and the movie. Some (most) people are less fussy...

    Advanced Atmos Configuration Help Needed

    The OP might want to take a look at the SVS Elevation speakers. Read what SVS has to say for some ideas for them. The format of the Elevations really helped me a lot for surface mounting, and it was the only reason I picked them (though I have other SVS stuff I like). I have 9' ceilings but...

    "From the Earth to the Moon" on Blu-ray July 16th

    Maybe from that point of view. But from a practical POV, like acquistion and actual watching, it's not the best marketing IMO. For things like this, getting the year right is usually good enough for marketing. That's why I suggested the BDs may not have been planned until "recently", when they...

    "From the Earth to the Moon" on Blu-ray July 16th

    I just finished watching this again (Signature DVD). About half way through, I thought I should get the BDs and watch those instead. Imagine my surprise to find there were no BDs yet. Who thought a July 16th release this year was a good idea? I mean, 50th anniversary, you have 50 years to...

    Cyberpunk 2077

    Morgan: what brought me to say the 2020-21 timeframe is I had read reports (from inside and outside the developer) that they could barely get something "good enough" together to meet the E3 deadline. Lots of chatter about what's going on inside CDPR with employees...of course I know nothing.

    Cyberpunk 2077

    Now that I've played some TW3 I get the excitement for a new release from these guys. I had no idea we were talking 2020-1 for a release date, sounds like PS5 territory. I wonder if this game would be big enough for a tie-in?

    VR discussion: Oculus Rift, Vive, Morpheus and more!

    ^ I get what you're saying, but you may (or not...) be surprised by the number of PSVR users who had never heard of 3D BD (which PS4 plays). It had no market penetration into the age groups that marketers covet. The demo who don't play BDs. So that (partly) explains that. And the people I was...

    VR discussion: Oculus Rift, Vive, Morpheus and more!

    Funny...my main original "deterrent" to VR was I don't like wearing stuff on my head. Especially something like a tight/heavy "helmet". Of course it's nothing like that, but that's what I had in my mind. Not only do I barely even notice the headset, I have also started wearing the odd hat. VR...

    VR discussion: Oculus Rift, Vive, Morpheus and more!

    Every (consumer) VR manufacturer I've read about has been disappointed with sales. Even the ones that sold a lot of units, by my judgment of "a lot", said sales were below expectations. Development costs must be high. I think that's partly why we're seeing so much stuff thrown out there, to see...

    VR discussion: Oculus Rift, Vive, Morpheus and more!

    Actually, at this stage I'd say people are tired of new VR hardware. The marketplace is fractured, unprofitable, and has surprisingly little interest for the majority of gamers. [At least, *I* am continually surprised at how little interest people in the 25-35 y.o. demo seem to have for this. I...

    Retro gaming

    Is there such a wireless (wifi or BT) controller that will work with the Nintendo NES/SNES Classics as well as the PlayStation Classic? I was thinking it might have the SNES form factor, and have analog sticks too, like some of the 8bitdo offerings. I realize I'd (probably) need separate RF...

    What are you playing right now?

    ^ I've heard of that! Man that Platinum slot looks lonely for my PSN trophies...not that you'd exactly stumble over the pile of Golds either... I play until I'm done. I can't say at what point that'll be, because even with a game I really like, I can feel when it's time to move on. Like for...
