I'm confused, is the soundtrack on the 4k disc better than the standard Blu ray ONLY IF an Atmos setup is used? 

4k discs has the atmos 3D audio one. the blu-ray that accompanies has only 7.1 one :) both are excellent ! :) 

 

if you dont have atmos and play the 4k uhd disc you will just get 7.1 :) if you have atmos capability you take advantage of that.

Right so the bed channels 7.1 are the same quality whether it's the 4k Blu ray or not.

 

I'll obviously choose the 4k for HDR benefits then.

"Oblivion's Dolby Atmos soundtrack is highly impressive and features several fantastic, reference-worthy Atmos moments. This review is based on a setup with seven traditional front, center, and surround speakers (plus subwoofer) and four "height" channels. The Atmos effects begin almost immediately. Jack calls in on a comms check which is heard from Victoria's perspective; the sound literally seems to emanate from directly above the listening audience, the voice saturating the top end of the stage. Such effects are heard more than once, and they're impressive each time, presenting realistically and balanced, with no sense of forced or gimmicky sensations. Other Atmos effects are splendid. Rippling cables can be heard reverberating like guitar strings overhead around the 17:45 mark. The sound pulses through the top of the stage as if the audience were seated below in the environment where Jack finds himself. Drones and ships zoom from side to side and front to back, often with a noticeable, but more finely integrated, overhead effect. General sonic details are impressive. Gunfire is punchy and zippy. Explosions pack a healthy wallop. Music saturates the stage with seamless spread and depth around. Low end accompaniment is always deep but balanced. Dialogue is clear and well prioritized with a natural front-center positioning. This is a marvelous Dolby Atmos track with several demo-worthy moments. "

The bass is a fair bit better in the 7.1 DTS HD track (about 10- 15dB louder bass under 30Hz) This will be most evident in scenes like the stadium landing. The Atmos track looks to have a pretty steep filter at 30Hz

 

 

( the DOTTED lines are the tracks on the discs, the solid lines are after adding EQ filters to boost the low bass)

I purchased Oblivion yesterday and Ralph Breaks The Internet (for my daughter). Looking forward to watching Oblivion again in 7.1 for the first time.

Was able to enjoy a few hours alone tonight so decided to put on Oblivion. What a great movie, I saw it when it first came out but didn't remember enjoying it as much as I did tonight, might be the surround sound improvements.

 

I definitely noticed the rear surrounds especially at around the 9 minute mark when the bubbleship turns around and the sounds follows it's movements.

 

Awesome!

 

Now I've realised the 2 weak links in my system.

 

1) the subwoofers

2) 65" tv is too small

Bang for buck, hard to go past Power Sound Audio subs. I'm running a couple of S1500s - very tight and musical, as well as slam for HT. Peter at Deep Hz isn't carrying much of their range at the moment - hopefully will be getting in some of their updated subs soon. FYI PSA is owned by one of the original founders of SVS.

Yes I am aware of PSA and when the time is right will contact Peter. Out of interest did you consider the ported V1500 or even the V1800?

 

Would love to hear PSA in action but won't waste Peters time unless I am ready to buy.

I didn't look at the ported subs as I didn't want anything that might have port chuffing - don't know whether PSA vented subs are susceptible to chuffing but it's one of my pet hates. I did consider whether to go a single S3600 (now out of stock) but was concerned about getting a smoother in-room response from two smaller subs.

 

The ported subs have better mid-range slam, but don't go as low as PSA's sealed subs.

I'm definitely looking forward to a demo one day to compare it to my twin m&K subs
