Referring to the audio format support, or what? I'm just now starting to read around, found this saying that there are patches coming soon to enable atmos and dts-x

not just the audio stuff. right now the software for playback is pretty buggy and people are reporting crashes left and right.

Re: Star Trek Beyond - 4K Blu-ray Review

Just got done watching the Bluray version... I have to admit the audio was great, but the lack of below 40Hz was very disappointing. I looked at my SPL meter and it was 20db below the 60Hz signal. I also was shocked that at -30 on my Yamaha I was hitting 120db on peaks! I have figured out that Yamaha doesn't equate the volume in dbs though, as when I had it at -20 it was hitting 123db. It was a little to loud for me at -20, so I turned it down to -30 and watched the whole movie. I am glad I bought this one as I will be watching it many more times...especially for demos.

yeah I noticed the same thing. really REALLY high peaks in the midbass range, but drops like a ROCK after 40 hz...

Re: Star Trek Beyond - 4K Blu-ray Review

I watched it last night, wasn't too terribly impressed. I've injoyed other ST movies much more. The whole progression of the plot was just not realistic. I could never get immersed in the movie because I kept realizing that things could not possibly happen that way in a real life rescue! Maybe it was just me, but I think it was about the worst one so far! Totally miss the bass.

This high pass filter business is really annoying, and I have to ask why. What's the point? If you're trying to protect theater equipment, that's not valid IMO. The theater should implement their own HPF based on the known capabilities of the equipment. Is it a director decision because he doesn't like the feel sub-40 Hz sounds give his film (hard to believe . . .). I just don't get it. Then there're films like Edge of Tomorrow which has potentially sub-destroying ULF in the opening seconds of the film. Weird.

Does anyone know why?

We watched the 4K version last night and had a blast with it. Maybe I'm missing something but I don't get the audio complaints? The Atmos track was incredible and literally created a bubble of sound that had us enthralled. While the bass may have not flexed my walls it was impactful and sounded great on my setup. Video was also outstanding and the HDR/WCG was at times awe inspiring. IMO with a proper setup to showcase 4K and Atmos this is demo worthy. I'll be watching this again and really enjoyed it.

The audio is great except that they filtered the bass. If you use a SPL meter that shows the frequency's you will see that there is a 20db drop from 60Hz to 40Hz.

yup, I'm especially sensitive to a drop under 25 hz... a 40hz drop off is almost felt instantly. LOTS of bass, just doesn't drop down low.
