not completely. I'm working on the speakers, but I'm waiting for more Atoms/DTS:X 11.2.4 receivers to make it to the market that don't cost me my first borne son. right now onkyo has a 5.1.2, one for only $600, that supports both, but I'm not a wild fan of Onkyo
I hope you meant 7.2.4 receivers. If you're waiting for affordable 16 channel boxes you may be waiting a long time! Emotiva is supposedly working on one, but other than that you're looking at five figure pre-pros for the forseeable future. It looks like we won't even get 9.1.4 receivers for 2016, which is a bummer.

lol, you're right. 7.2.4 is what I meant... 11 channels for the main speakers was going through my mind, and then herpa derpa came out on the keyboard... durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... 11.2.4 would be insane

"Safe" with Jason Statham. This film has riveting suspense, almost non-stop action, an excellent plot... And they really make you hate the bad guy!!! Downside: soundtrack has mediocre quality all around (surround effects, sub-bass, low volume/muddy speech, etc). But still intelligible during quiet scenes. To give you an idea of the difference: I normally watch movies at -32 to -30dB. I watched this one at -24dB.

.
I try to be as good as my dog thinks I am

I imagine Denon will have a replacement for their X5200 unit (which should be 7.2.4 and have DTS:X) by CEDIA (which is in October this year). Yamaha will likely have their 3050 out by then too. My eventual goal is 11.1.4 or 9.1.6, but I'll settle for 7.1.4 for a while.

Get Hard was pretty good. Not Kevin's best but good.

Watched Zero Motivation on Netflix last night. I just took a chance on it as I'd never heard of it before. I really thought it was great. A+

Saw Spy with Melissa McCarthy and thought it was good. Saw Hercules with the Rock and wasn't impressed.Saw Battleship again for the second time and I enjoyed it a lot more the second time around. First time I saw it I thought it was trash but now I like it.

I REALLY enjoyed "Spy". Jason Statham stole every scene he was in!


Battleship is trash, but it's ridiculously fun trash. I actually really like it for some reason (Besides Rihanna's horrible acting)
