I was flipping through a home theater magazine today (Im sorry I can remeber which one but it was yellow and had a picture of Penelope Cruz in the TV on the cover) Anyway, there was an article about Tomlinson Holman and his new sound format. I didnt have time to read the article thuroughly, but I beleived it said that he recently made a new sound format that supports 10.2 channels. CENTER placed directly in front, LEFT and RIGHT placed 30 degrees from the viewing position. HIGH LEFT and HIGH RIGHT place 45 degrees horrizontally and 45 degrees vertically from the veiwing pisotion, SIDE LEFT and SIDE RIGHT, SURROUND LEFT and SURROUND RIGHT placed 110 degrees from the viewer, and SURROUND BACK dirrectly opposite from the CENTER. Plus 2 SUBWOOFERS place in opposite diagonal corners of the room. I really wish I had time to to really read the article but I had to leave becuase my brother and I had to get home very soon. Anyways, if anyone has any more info on this, Id really like to hear about it Once again the Magazine was yellow, had a picture of Penelope Cruz on it and featured another cover article called "Best ome Theater for you $$$"
