    Upgrading to Atmos 7.1.4

    Thanks Al. Sorry I forgot I did try Fury Road and it's incredible, that movie is brutal on a system and fully utilises every speaker for a fantastic experience.I tired Fury yesterday and that was amazing and watched the first hour and a half of BR2049 and it's very immersive and I love all the discrete effects that are placed in the ceiling speakers like the advertising billboards in BR and how they move depending on the view on screen. I wish Avengers: Infinity War was mixed as well as these titles. IMO Ready Player One the car race and Fallout (pretty much everything) for the best Atmos experience, but only watched the first 10mins of Fury Road. The helicopter sequence at the end of Fallout out is a go to demo scene for any Atmos system if you want to show it off. My neighours must hate me now.

    Upgrading to Atmos 7.1.4

    It went smoothly. Audio Trends did the measurements and I was able to go .4 and stayed within the Dolby Specifications. I wanted to wait until I tested and listened to some Atmos 4K discs before posting. Suffice to say 7.1 is now a distant memory and can’t believe just how good Atmos is in completely enveloping the listener. I’ve tested Ready Player 1, A Quiet Place , Bladerunner 2049, MI: Fallout and Superman:The Movie. The last 2 I watched last night in their entirety. I’m completely sold on Atmos and look forward to future releases. No regrets 👍.

    Outdoor speakers advice - covered porch/large area

    I recently purchased these for Atmos (indoor use) but have heard great things for their use for outdoor (by design): https://www.krix.com.au/stratospherix-as/ Sold by Selby: https://www.selby.com.au/krix-stratospherix-in-ceiling-speaker.html I'm having them installed (pending placement and if they can fit) today. I got them on the Black Friday sale 20% off.

    Upgrading to Atmos 7.1.4

    “It” meaning implementing Atmos . These installers aren’t just in it for the money, it’s a business I’ve dealt with for over 15 years for various HT related things. It’s Audio Trends in Ringwood and I used to live 10mins from them years ago and would visit their store pretty much every weekend. The system will will be calibrated using an Anthem AVM-60 processor with Electra amps powering the whole system. So do you have an Atmos setup? Al if you could post pics of your room showing the ceiling speaker placement, might give me an idea where they should be placed in my room if possible.

    Upgrading to Atmos 7.1.4

    We will see. The installers have done dozens of Atmos installs so hopefully it can be done without jeopardising sound quality. Thanks for the input guys will post back on Friday after it’s been done.

    Upgrading to Atmos 7.1.4

    Ok thanks. From looking at the diagram it shows the front Atmos ceiling speakers to be in the centre on the room so if that's the case then I can place mine to the sides of the acoustic panels which will put them in direct alignment with the front speakers. The couch is approx 1m from the back wall (where the blind is at the back), as the wall directly behind the couch is where a fire place used to be so it comes out so that's behind the couch (less than 1m). I've added a circle to the pics to show where I think the ceiling speakers should go but I will talk to the Audio installers on Friday to discuss optimal positioning. I work shift work so I may be late in replying as I'm on Avo's today.
  7. Hi all. This Friday I'm having the ceiling speakers installed (4x Stratospherix krix) for a 7.1.4 Atmos setup. I would like advise please on their position in the room (refer to pics). Room is approx 5m long by 4m wide. I'm thinking the front ones can go to the sides of the ceiling acoustic panels which is pretty much the centre of the room and the rear ones in alignment but just behind where the projector is positioned to each side of the room. I did look at the Dolby Spec for 7.1.4 but I don't think I can get exactly what they recommend due to the room. Thoughts and ideas would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Subwoofer better than Submersive

    I went from 2 subversives to a PSA T-18. Awesome sub and very powerful. The submersives are awesome but I went a single sub as I needed some money at the time. I don’t miss the submersives since getting the T-18.

  11. I just bought Matrix-Reloaded and Revolutions and tested some scenes from both and Wow. Incredible wide dynamic soundstage. I’m just running 7.1 but every speaker gets used extensively with excellent separation and bass hits very hard. Just the credits at the start of Revolutions is excellent. Unfortunetly each disc defaults to the Dolby Digital 5.1 audio so you will need to change it to True HD to experience the full audio experience.

  13. I purchased this year a PSA Triax T-18 Subwoofer from Peter at DeepHz and it's awesome. I replaced 2 Seaton Submersives and it more than fills the room with tight powerful bass: http://www.deephzaudio.com/Power Sound Triax T-18 product page.html Worth considering Imo.

    Professional Room treatment Melbourne

    I used Gordan years ago from Accoustic Vision and he really did go above and beyond. Ending up purchasing 4 panels (2nd hand) and 2 ceiling diffuser panels. Changed the room for the better but my system has completely changed now so might have to rethink accoustics.
