Voice of god speaker are for those wonderful narrator moments where Morgan Freeman tells you what is happening. Because he is pretty much the golden standard for those things. It is mounted directly above the primary sitting position and intended to make you feel like he is talking directly to your soul. :P Too bad it has to be recorded as such. Else, we could go back and watch all of our favorites in a whole new way.

Sadly there are psycho people everywhere. They read all the media forums and it turns them into radicals psychos. Then they just lose it and go crazy.

Thanks for the information. I wonder if DTS:X needed to do VOG (Voice of God) using the 2 or 4 Atmos speaker layout, could it send VOG to all 2 or 4 speakers in mono and have the same effect?

That said, if someone were deploying ceiling speakers for Atmos, would it really be all that difficult to include a 3rd or 5th (center ceiling) speaker just in case multiple surround formats could be used (Auro)? I don't think that would add much to the overall cost of a home theater deployment, even if that speaker were largely unused. After all, the rear surround on a 7.1 setup were rarely used at the beginning stages of the 7.1 adoption, and are still not often used in most movie soundtracks.

These are other reasons why I'm waiting to deploy immersive sound - we just don't know how this will flush out yet.

Ya this hasn't really been flushed out. Really though Auro has almost no chance of success. It requires a completely different speaker layout than ATMOS. DTS:X works with ATMOS layout. So its two giants vs one with a lot less support. Logically speaking a receiver could handle all three with 7.2.5ish, but the other issue would be that the surround positions are also different in Auro. I don't know anyone building an Auro home theater at this point. That is a good early sign of its demise.

Keep in mind these are guidelines for best results. The vast majority of people will not be able to perfectly match guidelines anyway. Only the select few with dedicated media rooms can really go directly off these guidelines. Auro will still play on an ATMOS layout. It will just be less than optimal and the effect won't be as immersive. This is a bit of a passion for me hence why I am spending 10k on speakers and over 20k for the room as a whole. I am still a beginner compared to some people, but I read a ton of articles and stay up to date on all new releases.

The biggest issue I have run into is everyone's opinion on perfect sound is different. Some like direct fire side speakers so they can pinpoint things coming from the left behind them. Others like speakers that spread more and blend together. So you know a general area, but not exact position. Some people like theater sound to be bright and loud. Other like it to be smooth and to be quality even at lower playing levels. There really is no such thing as a perfect speaker or layout. Its all a matter of what you like. I know so many people in love with Klipsch sound. Personally I hate it for voices (talking mainly).

Absolutely, Murphy. Between the lack of content and now format battles, it feels like the industry is purposely trying to set up immersive sound for failure... Definitely have my plans for an upgrade on hold.

Cheers,

While I agree and I don't mind spending a little bit to be an early adopter. I would say ATMOS and DTS:X both have a good chance and will probably both be around for a long time. Personally I think DTS:X makes the most sense. It mixes much easier and uses a single stream to accommodate a huge array of setups. I highly doubt that all of these formats are going to just die. This is not like 3D where you have to pay more for it. Its just something that will be included with movies and if you have the equipment to play then great. If not then you just don't get the immersion. 3D failed because it costs a lot more and required a lot of extra things (and god awful glasses). I enjoy passive 3D on a good tv (LG 4k OLED passive 3D is amazing).
