I haven’t worked for them for three years so please get your facts straight before accusing me of something. This worked extremely well with any content, providing a simulated surround experience that was nearly as accurate as a discrete mix. You certainly made sure to plug your own article in the process so maybe people should question just who is doing something for personal gain here If one sits in the sweet spot, vocals come from the center anyways. As a self confessed two channel audiophile, based in valve and vinyl most of the time I used to think NO processing was always best. DSU flawlessly reproduced the imaging of a large auditorium.

Nic Rhodes , Jan 2, Jan 1, at 2: This type of audio will be detected automatically by an AV receiver if it has an onboard decoder. This can be a big plus for music recordings in my opinion, I don’t like what PLII does it really alters the presentation a lot. My main complaint was how it handled single pairs of overhead speakers, especially a single pair of top middle speakers. Nobber22 , Jan 3,

DSU impressively preserved the integrity of the original surround mix, objects panning from the front channels to the rear channels in the original surround mix followed almost exactly the same pattern in the upmix. The scene that conema caught my attention was the Millennium Falcon taking off from tatooine.

I have a yamaha so it is very easy to switch configurations without losing the EQ. To start off, I used Star Wars: X, it would simply collapse in the fronts with no height channel usage unless the object moved towards the middle of the room directly overhead.

So, if you have height or upfiring speakers connected to your AV receiver, then you can enable this on stereo or standard multichannel soundtracks.

The sum of the left and right channels was mixed into the center, and the spatial timing differences were routed into the surrounds. I only use it for two-channel sources, though.

You will pay the same. It can also create a 6. Thanks for sharing this. The height speakers can be ceiling mounted speakers or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers which fire the sound upwards.

When switching back to stereo, I instantly felt like the sound stage seemed flat and lifeless when compared with DSU. I don’t use it for listening to music as it suggests, I prefer no DSP effects at all, although I don’t listen to music in direct mode because it would bypass bass management.

So, if Roger Dressler no longer worked for Dolby ppl2 was out of the industry but posted here that Dolby Pro 2 wipes up Circle Surround in his opinion, you think it should not be said and would be inappropriate for Sanjay to say-“don’t you work for Dolby”?

To test the performance icnema two channel content, I used both movies and music. My receiver does not allow me to cross mix between codecs, the only way to choose either one is to use a PCM mix, at the time of the demos, I did not oedr a BDP capable of decoding audio into multichannel PCM. I am giving my personal opinion now. In diesem Modus wird der Ton von der Eingangsquelle ausgegeben, wie er ist. NewburyBerkshire Ratings: A Dolby Digital EX enabled receiver can decode this type of codec and accommodate an extra surround speaker for a 6.
