Im glad you posted the link to the Dolby Atmos site - I found it very interesting, and am suprised you havent gone into more detail about it!

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the video tzjp, it was simply meant to be a way of highlighting an event we took the trouble to arrange for some of our readers. You can read all about Dolby Atmos here.

None taken.

Tell me, kind sirs of the prestegious What Hi-Fi mag, what sort of journalism is this? Is this an ad? is this an infomercial? Is this a new tech intro?

Where are you mentioning even in the slightest bit what in the world is Atmos? What editor is aproving these kind of articles on your website and gets to keep his job...

I swear sometimes reading or going through your articles/reviews throws a serious sense of non-professionalism.

Also, why is there background music all through your video when the accents of whomever you're interviewing are so thick, that even without the music it would be too hard to make any sense out of... Either put in captions or turn the "hip" music off, kindly.
