Some of us already have speakers on the ceiling, but without HDMI, getting it working with an AVR/AVP could be difficult.The only changes I see in the future will be a new DSP chip with a larger capacity as I can then clear out one minor shortcut we had to do. I am thinking of adding a height channel but its a distant maybe thought as I really do not thing many want speakers on ceilings.
I would think 7.1 output would be a logical next step given many AVRs over the years and some current like from Marantz still do. Logic 7 did 7.1 clear back in 1996, I believe. If the SM really is better than other matrix style decoders, shouldn't it support the full current 7.1 bed layout?
Easily tested if/when I get a hold of a SM.Has anyone tried the SM on ATMOS or Sony 360 recordings?
