    Official Atmos Home Theater Thread UPDATED With First Impressions

    There are multiple Atmos/X placements. On the wall above your main pair and rear(Google "Yamaha front and rear Presence") as that arrangement was used at one of the Atmos original demonstrations. That would be "my preferred choice" since SVS doesn't have in-wall/ceiling speakers. The two...

    Audyssey DSX is the "front wide". Since 5(+ wide).1.4 is 11 channels... All of the 11 channel options.

    Because, by default, every single speaker mounted to a ceiling... Is Atmos already.

    If Dolby "approved" in-ceiling speakers, I would die laughing. That would be a bigger joke than THX certifying computer speakers.

    Official Atmos Home Theater Thread UPDATED With First Impressions

    Hopefully the rumblings I'm hearing on the wholesale end regarding 4K projection, end up being native.Sad when a company rep sends you an email about upcoming 4K...and you shoot back with "Native, e-shift or upscale?"...And the response is..."Oh...uh...let me check..."

    I haven't actually read the release...I just know the "usual suspects" were included. No product itself was mentioned.

    Is the 7702 going to get the "DTS X" update? (Since the DTS press release was today)

    There are no technical issues.

    Official Atmos Home Theater Thread UPDATED With First Impressions

    In-wall/ceiling speakers should only be bought if they include a movable tweeter. For any application.My speakers will hang at a roughly 30 degree angle(from horizontal) pointed at a spot 40% from the front.Tweaking from that starting point.

    Official Atmos Home Theater Thread UPDATED With First Impressions

    Unless you are putting Atmos in an enormous room...the dispersion "issue" is being overblown. I haven't measured yet...but I'm guessing my 4 will be about an 8 by 11 rectangle. 4 BIC DV52, the speakers I'm going to use, will have no problem covering the area...and they aren't exactly "wide...

    There is a pair of SBS 01. Those are concurrent.

    Official Atmos Home Theater Thread UPDATED With First Impressions

    You kept talking about UHD combined with Atmos like they would only occur together.I see the white paper shows a typical living room layout that shows no resemblance to the ITU standard.But like I've said all along...Overhead speakers mounted above the corners of the seating out approximately...

    1. There is no "may" in the Christmas 2015.2. Why, by God why, is UHD/4K video even being discussed in this thread?

    Official Atmos Home Theater Thread UPDATED With First Impressions

    Nobody, anywhere, expects Atmos on DTS HD content.What's your point of the adoption rate?Dave(above. And too many other posts to count) blurts about needing an Atmos BD player. Atmos, nor DTS UHD, will NEVER require an upgraded player, PPEERRIIOODD.UHD video has jack shit to do with Atmos/DTS UHD.

    Official Atmos Home Theater Thread UPDATED With First Impressions

    How many times does it have to be stated...Atmos DOES NOT, AT ALL, require a new BD player. And apparently nobody remembers Onkyo firmware updated everything down to the 636(or was it 535...) to include at least 5/1/2 Atmos.

    That would make a difference. Still...the enabled weren't helped by the fluorescent fixtures.

    Hhhmmmmm...Those pics make it look like they aped Yamaha front and rear Presence.Is NYC the same speaker locations as Burbank?And the position of those fluorescent fixtures wasn't helping "the enabled"...

    Official Atmos Home Theater Thread UPDATED With First Impressions

    Correct. Extra speakers are required...just like they are with Presence*(which debuted 10-15 years ago?), DPL IIz, DTS Neo:X and Aud DSX.*Virtual Presence is a different feature.

    Official Atmos Home Theater Thread UPDATED With First Impressions

    Audio, since the dawn of Victrola, has had spatial cueing. Atmos(and DTS upcoming UHD) take spatial cueing a step further. That further is object based sound. You want 5.1 with no object based sound? Fine, skip Atmos/UHD. You want 5.1 with 2 or 4 object based speakers? Buy/install those...

    Official Atmos Home Theater Thread UPDATED With First Impressions

    Irrelevant question. Atmos, like DPL IIz/DSX/Presence, is an ADD-ON. The base, core, audio is just that. Your question is akin to... Which car is faster around a race track? A Ferrari or Nissan Leaf IF some 16yo fresh with his license is behind the wheel of the Ferrari, Michael Shumacher*...

    I'm irritated I had to miss out on the NYC demo.(work started a third shift and the logistics side, two of us, are training the 3rd shift. No "off-time" granted...).I've already used the whitepaper to "re-design" two in progress theatres. Thankfully both overall budgets are "blank check".

    I may wait on Atmos this edition...and it has nothing to do with Atmos.It is the projector front. It appears there is going to be a 4k projector at $500 above my threshold in cost(my threshold is wholesale, not retail).If this price I see is accurate...the AVR upgrade will wait(for full 4k...
