I have a felling we will not see a lot of re-releases of Bluray's with Atmos or DTS-X as Bluray sales are low already and UHD bluray just about to come out.I am digging Atmos, but not digging at repurchasing "atmos" blurays movies to replace my blus I already got. Talk about getting pinched twice!
I can't see Auro 3D winning this Battle or even placing 2nd.My fear for auro 3D is that by the time it gets any traction, atmos and DTS-X will be the status quo, and there won't be room for it, and most people won't want to hear about "another" surround sound thingy. Tony, I would think it worth the upgrade, and almost a no brainier if you don't have to move a mountain to do it.
As far as I know DTS-X does not put speakers in the ceiling and Auro 3D only has One. Funny how a object based sound process has 3 very different setups.true, I think I would simply mount some good speakers in the ceiling above the seating and whatever format wins the speakers should do the job. I may hold off upgrading the receiver till some time next fall as by then hopefully something more clear will be in place.
