booth had a fantastic demo for both DTS:X and Dolby Atmos, but it was the DTS that really got our attention. They played a music video from Cymantics
, mastered in DTS:X and it was transcendent—it was everything immersive audio could and should be. That clip along made us converts to DTS:X. And we’re looking forward to more content becoming available in this aurally exciting format. Of, course the fantastic quality of the Klipsch in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, plus a very capable sub-woofer, helped a lot. The demo was as much an impressive exhibition of Klipsch’s legendary speaker quality as it was for the DTS:X format.
AV receivers are now widely available that can decode Dolby Atmos as well as DTS:X. DTS:X can use the same speakers and configurations as Atmos, so a any home theater that can do Dolby Atmos, can do DTS:X (with a DTS:X enabled receiver). The new new Ultra HD Blu-ray specs include both formats, and more and more online content distribution services are including immersive audio formats as well. DTS:X has been struggling to gain market share, hopefully things will turn around for them. Having multiple immersive sound formats is a good thing. And now we are longing to experience more content as immersive as Cymantics on Klispch speakers in DTS:X.
