Interesting.

 

On the above link to the Pioneer..."The Elite-series receivers will be Dolby Atmos upgradable via a firmware update due by the end of the year, the company said."

The Elite series in the UK are the SC receivers...fingers crossed for an upgrade for those models too Smile

Forget that.

 

I just re-read it and it looks like this applies to the 2014 receivers as they won’t be Atmos enabled at launch, but will be after the year end firm ware update…if I’m reading it correctly.

The story was under a strict embargo which some of our rivals - ahem - chose to ignore. You do the decent thing... :wall:

From the press release:

"As you may know Dolby has its Atmos announcement scheduled for 7pm (9am Pacific Time US launch).
And remember... no going live before 7pm!"

RE: Why is this site like a pub on the Moon?

How can they be launching it tonight if we were talking about it (and hearing it) months ago?

RE: Why is this site like a pub on the Moon?

Atmos is the worst kept secret, ever. I knew months ago too and prepared my room for it.

This type of news will always leak and before you know it, its all over the web.

It's not the launch of Dolby Atmos as such (that's been around for a while), but rather the announcement of the hardware partners who will be bringing it into domestic AV products.

As for home use JD, well it's just an excuse to cram even more speakers into your living room Wink

Atmos wasn't a secret. It already exists in some cinemas. And as some have already pointed out, we've been writing about it for months. What we couldn't confirm, until now, was which of the hardware manufacturers would include Atmos in their 2014 models.
