A World First and a World Class Home Cinema Demo From Krix
Following 2017's Melbourne International Hi-Fi Show, I sat with Scott Krix, the founder of the loudspeaker company bearing his name and over coffee, the seed for a genuinely world-class home cinema demonstration for the following year's show, was planted.
It was never meant to be this big. It was never expected to have so many channels. And as we'd soon learn, it might not even be possible.
But it was big. And it grew to a world-first, whopping 24.10.10 channels of Dolby Atmos, and in the end, it was more than possible. In fact, it was a staggering success.
But it wasn't without serious commitment; blood, sweat, tears, and ultimately a substantial investment from the South Australian manufacturer.
There were times where, as the organiser of the show, I wondered whether we could pull it off. Our reputation was riding on this. There were times where even the venue itself had concerns. Scott Krix was nervous.
But with absolute determination and the dedication of the entire Krix team, it all came together. All parties came together and worked harmoniously through the challenges. Krix can now proudly wear the crown as the first Dolby Atmos home cinema demonstration of this scale at a public show, ever.

On behalf of StereoNET, and the International Hi-Fi Show, I would like to personally thank Barco, Trinnov and Tom Garrett, and all the partners that came together to support this project. I'd also like to sincerely thank all the Krix team, especially Michael Cox and Scott Krix for believing in us as a partner and giving us the opportunity to present this demonstration to the public. It was a wild ride, but we'd have no hesitation doing it all over again.
