We watched it last night with the Yamaha CX-A5100 in Atmos (surround mode), and it was great!:T:T

This movie re-affirmed (to me) how great DTS-HD tracks sound. I've always felt that DTS-HD MA sounded better than Dolby TrueHD --- with DTS have a much smoother (less edgy) sound. Perhaps I'm crazy...but that's what my ears tell me. I'm really looking forward to DTS:X rolling out and hearing how it compares to Dolby Atmos.

As soon as we get the firmware upgrade for DTS-X... I will watch it again to see if it sounds different (better, worse, or the same).
