From Tony at Audioholics, "The big question is the new 360 Spatial room correction. Dirac has their spatial room correction solution
, which abandons the old method of correcting one channel at a time, instead using every speaker in a system simultaneously to optimize the reproduction of each input channel. Trinnov recently released...".
I didn't realize that the Sony room correction may go beyond Dirac Live, Audyssey, etc.'s Room Correction and be closer to Dirac's new ART and Trinnov's equivalent. This would corroborate Andrew Robinson's glowing review without going into detail, other than it sounded better than systems he's used with traditional Dirac. Very interesting, I can't wait for the upcoming detailed review.
It seems everyone is jumping into spatial audio, including Sonos with their leaked new Era line. Too bad Sonos and Apple are not getting along and Apple Music won't work on Sonos Atmos, and Denon and Sonos are not getting along.
All I want is a room-corrected, multi-independent-sub-bass-corrected, spatially-audioated, 7.2.4 atmos system with a Samsung Frame art exhibit look, that I can pipe to (Airplay) or from (various TV content like concerts) so I can have an audio art room plus home playing in high-fidelity, loss-less, spatial audio. With the tech right there, why is this so hard? There is good reason people give up and stick with vinyl two speaker stereo and crappy portable bluetooth speakers.
