  4. Issues to look for with Dolby Atmos playback thru PC 8 channel sound-card then back thru Dolby atmos Pre/Pro

    Audio Processing
    Issues to look for with Dolby Atmos playback thru PC 8 channel sound-card then back thru Dolby Atmos Pre/Pro using Digital Coaxial RCA's. Is the Sound room mixing lost or is frequency steering of the Dolby recording algorithms recaptured in the final Pre/Pro processing?
  5. Dolby / DTS 5.1, 7.1, 9.1, 11.1 encoding

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    How many bluray movies are discretely encoded in anything above basic 5.1 surround? Very few that I can find. Only one title in my collection is in 7.1. How about TV broadcasts? Anything above 5.1? Do the processors just do a matrix / synthetic up scaling to 11.2?

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    I already have a 7.1 setup and want to go to 7.1.2 but the 4 surround speakers are already high in the corner of the walls and ceiling facing to the optimal seating. So is it even worth installing the ceiling speakers? If so where to install to take advantage of them?

    Speaker and Subwoofer Reviews
    When Dolby Atmos for the home was first introduced, options were limited and the cost of entry was high. You needed and expensive AVR and very few options when it came to speakers with Atmos-enabled capability built-in. Now, the cost of entry for an Atmos-enabled system is lower and the choice...

When it occurs I have to keep selecting different modes of Audio, Pro Logic, Dolby 3 Stereo, Stereo etc and then it pops back in. Sometimes it occurs when I hit pause...

    Let me start by saying I know the room is WAY smaller than ideal, but I have no other options.

  17. AMC to Speed Up Dolby Cinema Rollout

    Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    AMC’s new line of commercial theaters has certainly caught the attention of nit-picky home theater enthusiasts that, for years, have shunned the standard (and, admittedly, middling quality) movie theater experience. After all, it’s tough to wander away from the friendly confines of a finely...

    I've recently upgraded to the Marantz sr7010 and here soon had plans to install 4 ceiling mounted speakers. After much research and some correspondence with Todd felt I might have a hole in the sound. So feeling as though I might as well go "all in" figured why not purchase 2 more rear speakers...
