Then of course you have people kinda hesitant to leap too early, and so a Poll was asked concerning this latest audio technology push.

Is Now Too Soon to Upgrade to Dolby Atmos?
  • I'm taking a wait-and-see approach for at least another year or more. (49%, 169 Votes)
  • I'm not interested in new sound formats anyway. I'm happy with what I have now. (23%, 78 Votes)
  • I was planning an upgrade, but now I may postpone it. (13%, 46 Votes)
  • I'm planning an upgrade soon and still intend to go through with it. (9%, 31 Votes)
  • I've already upgraded to Atmos and I have no regrets. (4%, 15 Votes)
  • I've already upgraded, but now I wish I'd waited. (2%, 3 Votes)
Total Voters: 342

I find the lack of interest or hesitation to be quite evident.
True - I'm on the hesitant side myself - waiting for PC support.

But that could soon change, now that Denon has just announced a firmware upgrade for its AVR-X4100W and AVR-X5200W AV receivers that will add Auro 3D capabilities to their already-impressive list of features, including Dolby Atmos. The upgrade will be available in December for an undisclosed fee. (Sorry, it won't be free.
Sucks that it's not free! I might as well wait for next years AV receivers since they'll come with both formats, plus DTS UHD when that becomes available. Seems like Dolby Atmos and Auro 3D might become this generations Dolby True HD and DTS-HD-MA.

Well I already have a few Auro 3D soundtracks plus a few movies in Dolby Atmos so I'm good to go for demo material!

I will get the upgrade as soon as it's available. Yes in this day and age it should be free. Maybe it is something to with licensing?

On a side note. My Projector is getting a hardware upgrade next week. New HDMI board. HDCP 2.2 or something like that. Is suppose to do 3D 4k at 60hz (no software yet altho I've been told that frame interpolation can be used). So hardware flown from France to New Zealand, plus technician time and the cost is zilch. Nothing. Now that's service.
Source: iPod 160G in Arcam DrDock, 2x Oppo BDP-103D's (Blu-ray, CD, SACD and DVD Audio), PS3 and PS4.
Amplification: Marantz SR7009(Atmos), 2x Marantz MM7055's (10 amps bi-amping 5 channels).

You have a few movies in Dolby Atmos? There is only one blu-ray that's encoded in Dolby Atmos right now, and it's Transformers: Age of Extinction. Other titles will be released soon.
