  2. Audio Processing
    Is it good to use THX processing for example with TrueHD, DTS HD MASTER, Atmos or is THX processing a thing of the past and while some modern receivers still carry it with todays new codecs is it best to leave it OFF?
  3. Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    Dolby Atmos and DTS:X have been simmering in the back of our minds for quite some time. In fact, it’s easy to call Immersive Sound both ‘old news’ and ‘the hottest topic’ in the home theater world. While it has infiltrated some homes, many enthusiasts have delayed buying an Atmos enabled AVR...

    Looked around a bit and didn't find exactly what I was looking for, so here it goes; is there a disc; Blu-ray or simple DVD, that contains all or at least most of the THX Trailers? Seems to me somebody would've put something together by now. Just wondering if such a thing exists that is for...

  8. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Which should I go with for my LCR? I've got a dedicated room for a HT, which is just under 3000 cubic sq feet. Planning to run off of my Denon 3312 due to their sensitivity, but may eventually try a 3-channel amp.
