"This mix utilizes each speaker as its own entity."Just got mine today. I'm only 3 songs in and I can tell it's definitely a 10!
The mix is so immersive
There's no front/rear/left separation as a traditional 5.1
This mix utilizes each speaker as its own entity. You are in the middle of a fun listen
Get this one! It's absolutely worth the price of admission
Yes, Big Boy's Blues seems a good 2-4dB lower in average volume to me too. I regularly turn that one up since it's probably my favorite tracks (that one almost machine-like sound 2/3 the way through flies straight over my head from the center channel speaker into the back of the room. It's freaky (it's in the lower ear level speakers even in Atmos; it's not a ceiling sound). There are lots of other sounds on the ceiling, though you'll find if you go Atmos.Electronica isn’t my normal cup of tea, but even in mere 5.1 Dolby TrueHD, this is a sonic fest deluxe! Some of the low end excursions literally cause my clothes to vibrate and shake.
Question - does Big Boy’s Blues sound lower in volume than the other 12 songs to anyone else? Really seems to be the case to my ear, but I figured I’d check with others.
I’m voting a 9 upgradeable to a 10 if and when I go Atmos.
