    Good article in the NewYork Times about Dolby Atmos

    Here's another good take on Atmos from an engineer's perspective. We have a 5.1 system we like for the TV. But I like quality wired headphones plugged into the receiver even better, as everything is so clear, especially dialogue. We are never, ever going more than 5 speakers + sub in any...
