Dino roars often pierced the room in sonic clarity
Is there any bass to the roars in this film? That's always been a major disappointment for me in most of these films, that the tyrannosaur roars and other large animal sounds don't seem to engage the subwoofer.

I watched the DVD of The Ghost and the Darkness a few weeks back, and the growls of the lions were really noticeable in the sub. Giant dinosaurs, not so much.

But my 3D blu arrived yesterday, so I guess I'll find out shortly.

I somehow haven't ordered this yet, will have to grab a copy. I liked it in the theater, but agree it's pretty empty. Definitely lags once they get to the mansion, there's no timer running the melodrama! If it's got Dinosaurs and Atmos I am all for it tho. Wait, what? DTS:X only? Bleee.

Isn't X the DTS equivalent of Atmos?

DTS:X

Rather than define a fixed number of channels, one for each speaker, DTS:X allows the "location" (direction from the listener) of "objects" (audio tracks) to be specified as polar coordinates. The audio processor is then responsible for dynamically rendering sound output depending on the number and position of speakers available. Dolby Atmos uses a similar technique, although the speaker layout employed by cinema DTS:X is the sum of Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D.
