    Official Atmos Home Theater Thread UPDATED With First Impressions

    Speakers are one of the most important parts of your system so I would not go to budget on them. Speakers are very important as you can make a high dollar receiver sound bad but you can also put a great pair of speakers on a cheap receiver and make it sound good. I would recommend that you go...

    While Dolby Atmos is still something I am looking to include in my upgrade plans I can see a problem already! While currently Dolby Atmos is the only immersive object based audio format and Auro upgrade that can be purchased. We are also supposed to see DTS-X coming out this year even though I...

    Official Atmos Home Theater Thread UPDATED With First Impressions

    That was a very nice press conference and it was nice to get some information regarding what to expect upgrading to Atmos. Transformers being the first movie out of the gate in Atmos will be nice IMHO. But since I do not currently own titles like Gravity or Oblivion and since these will most...

    Official Atmos Home Theater Thread UPDATED With First Impressions

    Beside how reflecting sound introduces distortion and also soaks up certain frequencies I honestly do not see how bouncing sound off a wall sounds more spacious than a speaker aimed at the listener? Sounds like you had a great time at the Dolby Atmos Demo at CEDIA but I think I will stick with...

    Not sure when I will be able to upgrade myself. The last 5.1 receiver I used was my Yamaha RX-V995 which I still have, I used it for aprox 14 - 15 years before I was able to upgrade to the Pioneer Elite SC-05 7.1 receiver I am currently using. What I want to be able to do is to expand my...

    I am sure that I said nothing about needing a new bluray player for Atmos. Because Atmos will most likely be a part of any 4K UHD format that comes out so IMHO it is relevant.

    Make no mistake this is going to be an expensive upgrade for anyone that decides to pull the trigger. It will require the purchase of a new receiver and at least 4 speakers. I am sure that it will not take long for lower end product to come out and for those on a budget it will still be a big...

    All I know is that it is going to be interesting if I actually go through with setting up a Dolby Atmos system. My room has some issues regarding a window taking up a lot of space on one side of the room and a ceiling fan in the middle of the ceiling. I will have to move my surround speakers...

    I started questioning the THX home certification for gear when they certified the Kenwood pre pro that came out. It didn't help after Kenwood at the time did a tour with this pre/pro and after the demo was over and the people had left. The guy admitted that they where not even using the...
