On my setup when Atmos is selected the tonality, and soundstage both change, with the front stage moving farther away from the MLP.


Ron, I'm curious to know if you know why that is. To my understanding, the bed channels are not effected by the atmos decoder.

Having a non atmos system, I can't compare directly, but it seems to me that even core 7.1 tracks are quite amazing. Panning is smoother, stage depth is deeper, and everything just seems mo-betta. Those are back end things I'll probably never know about, but the front end is most definitely improved.

I don't know the answer but it happens with Atmos and non Atmos movies if I choose the DSU.

The last two of my Atmos/DTS:X speakers arrived today. Now the anticipation is killing me!

It is a little darker sounding than without... I want to say that without using the DSU the sound is clearer, sharper, but not as enveloping as using the DSU. I am anxious to hear what your results will be.

Congratulations! Did you get the upward firing Atmos speakers or the ceiling type?

I'll be installing 4 in the ceiling and 2 for the rear. All of which will be bookshelves pointed at the MLP.

Listening in Atoms Up Mix using a non Amost media produces mixed results.

I have also noticed that some non-Atmos movies sound better without up-mixing.
