I just did the same test with Freedom '90 with the same results. All speakers set to large and barely any LFE. Changed speakers to small with an 80Hz crossover and the bass kicked right in.very interesting findings, Dan T
i just ran a basic little experiment, set all my Speakers to Large, kept the Sub On and had a flick through all the new George Michael Atmos songs.
the only songs that had an active LFE channel (as distinct from Crossedover content when running Speakers set to Small and the Low Bass content redirected to the Subwoofer at a given crossover) were on the Patience album from 2004.
all the other albums, including Faith, Older, Listen Without Prejudice, the covers album and the Symphonica Live album had absolutely nothing that i could detect going on in the LFE at all, with all Speakers set to Large and the Sub On.
i then set the Speakers back to Small with a global Crossover of 80Hz and wow.. all this lovely deep, warm Bass kicked in!! ✌
I love the mixes, but I too noticed the weirdly anemic bass, unless I use Bass Management to get stuff to my sub.
Low frequency content in the heights is fairly uncommon, but you do see it on occasion - there's a track on Tom Petty's Angel Dream where a big timpani drum appears entirely isolated up there!fwiw, i noticed there was even Bass in the Front Heights on my system in some of these George Michael Atmos mixes...
Freddie, in the past this post has helped me with my system, mostly about oppo players, but see if there's anything in there that might help out-i must be getting the wrong end of the stick, i don't know how to setup a Sub in a Surround system without some kind of Bass Management going on?
fwiw, i noticed there was even Bass in the Front Heights on my system in some of these George Michael Atmos mixes that was low enough it was beefier in-room when crossed over to the Sub @80Hz than when those Heights were run "Large"/Full Range, so i think maybe the expectation on the Atmos Engineer's part may have been for the end user to be running a Bass Managed setup and so the Engineer consequently mixed low Bass into all the Full-range channels and nothing in the LFE

The savings in jitter are only a few picoseconds (3.15ps to be exact). Using the 1080p video HDMI clock, its jitter measured 53.82 ps, excellent in its own right as it represented just 8% of one-bit clock period. Using the new jitter reduction circuit with a more pristine clock, measured jitter...www.avsforum.com
Have any of the mixes turned up on Tidal by any chance?
Wow, thanks a bunch! Downloading now. Guess I know what I'm doing tonightIgnore the weird unrelated quoted text in the link below.
The link points to a post with the answer to your question.
This forum software does some odd stuff to URLs.....
Trying to find this (Bowie Space Oddity) Atmos mix on Tidal and the above link gives me 'Oops We couldn't find the page you were looking for' Is it just me? I can't seem to find it by searching I can't no longer find it too, see only those 6 titles in 360 format now. :(www.quadraphonicquad.com

What is it with Tidal hiding some releases from the Atmos hub/artist page?
Couldn't find those anywhere!
No kidding, halfway through Faith now (5.1 core only), sounds great!Cool, you're gonna love 'em, they really are great mixes, I was surprised.
Yeah Tidal really are clueless as an organization in so many ways.
There have been tons of important Atmos releases that have never made it to any of the new or recent Atmos releases lists/pages.
Without users like us constantly scouring and searching and talking we'd never know about them.
There have been gross errors with things they do put on those pages and they just ignore it when you tell them about it.
Then on top of that they charge double what Apple does and it's really just laughable.
