    Iím sure you have heard 60HZ before. There are situations where noise cancellation makes for better sound. One area that is critical, is noise cancellation before digital compression.

    That track is rather unique in that respect.

    Dolby Cinemas have Dolby Atmos sound which blow IMAX away, for absolute quality and tight really deep bass (lower than hearing). I read this about the new Avatar:

    Many swear by IMAX, but if you want the highest quality and most consistent experience, you want Dolby Cinema 3D. Dolby screens all feature Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, widely considered the new standard for premium image and audio. For Avatar, youíll get to see the film exactly as it was intended: 3D, 4K, HFR, and HDR (the latter of which IMAX canít do). Dolby 3D is brighter and clearer than IMAX 3D as well, and considering Dolby is partnered with James Cameronís production company Lightstorm Entertainment, itís a safe bet that Dolby Cinema 3D is going to give you the most accurate experience to the directorís vision.

    Hopefully, Cameron spent a bit more on the script this time around.

    I donít expect good scripts on movies like this, because people donít like them, and shock and awe rule!

    "Movies like this" wouldn't have to be "movies like this" if the script was at the same level as the special effects.

    This new Avatar will based in an underwater environment. This way, Cameron can claim he didn't artistically rip off a different aspect of Roger Dean's work.

    I though it was a rip off of Beany and Cecil

    you're right. The first one was proof that you can obviously rip off one or more well known story tropes, flagrantly rip off a well known artist's life work (admit that you may have done so but still refuse to credit said artist) and most won't care as long as it looks cool.

    So let me get this straight. You're saying the script in a special effects movie is as extraneous as a script in porn?

    Apparently The Pineapple Thief (TPT) has reworked songs and rereleased them in Atmos or 5.1. That would indicate that Bruce Soord of TPT has demoed his capability with Ian Anderson, leading to getting this new JT job.

    TPT ‘Give It Back’ will be released as a 2 disc CD & Blu-ray (Audio - Hi-res Stereo/DTS-HD MA 5.1/Dolby Atmos), CD, black vinyl LP and digitally and is available to pre-order now.


    Bruce about his studio:

    ‘When I’m not working on The Pineapple Thief or my own solo material, I like to work with other artists – both emerging and established. I’ve mixed bands from all over the world and because of that, sessions are usually completed remotely. This isn’t as detached as it sounds though. I keep in touch throughout the mixing process and mixes are nearly always signed off with only a couple of revisions.

    I work in partnership with Steve Kitch, who takes care of all my mastering needs.’

    The studio setup to mix in full range 5.1 surround and 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos. The room has been calibrated by Dolby.

    Dolby Atmos is supported by Apple Music, Tidal and Amazon Music HD.

    5.1 Surround mixes can be supplied in downloadable ‘Flac’ format, or in DTS authored to DVD-V.

    Music is / has been a single source / dual source (mono / stereo) medium for well over a hundred years. The availability of playback systems that "come from everywhere" will not change that.

    Would you buy a color TV set before they started broadcasting in color?

    Dolby Atmos is a wonderful thing in theaters. For home stereos however, I'm not sure there's enough good content to justify the expense?

    Ridiculous, ignorant, pretentious and arrogant. If you havenít heard it, all of those adjectives apply.

    Insults don't address my central point. Is there any multi-channel material out there that isn't just a gimmick?

    And now you play victim. When are you going to contribute something to this thread? Why don’t you describe in technical detail what you have listened to in multichannel, system and content? There are details that have to be done correctly for imaging to benefit even for two channels, not to mention more channels. There is a huge benefit to having 3 channels, with bass allocated to a subwoofer and dedicated amplifier. Speaking of stereo, read this review of the Polk Legend model 800, with advanced SDA. People have referred to it as a gimmick, but it points out the natural problem with listening in stereo.

    Went here with a friend last week to pick up a piece of equipment he bought. It sure makes you feel like a little person walking through all the rooms there.
