Lol I’d like to look at it as loudness tool, makes the sound track louder, that’s about all there is to it...

Unlike dtsx pro, or dtsx, that’s a different ball game...

We are not second hand dealer , all items we sell as used are tradedin from our customer and we don't rate it condition but for the buyer to decide on it own.
From time to time we may sell off some New but open up used for rental/standby/loan items and to ensure they cant be sold as Brand new , we will dispose off the box.

IMAX and DTS X clever idea to make you upgrade your AVR.
Even the pros are not taking about it.

DTSx is different league, definitely much better that DTS-HD MA...

DTSx Pro, the trinnov guys gets it first..... havent heard it so cant comment

IMAX looks like gimmick to me, personally im not convinced with IMAX

There isnt much content in IMAX anyway, nothing really clever about it by the AVR makers introducing IMAX for sales, i definitely dont see it as a feature that can generate revenue.......

This reminds me of the Lexicon and Oppo debacle couple of years back.
Surprisingly manufacturers also scum to such tactics........ and it boils down one thing only MONEY every thing else is disregarded.

Think, we should just look at it like the past .
There are  AVR with THX cert and without, what is that all abt? you guess.....
There are two camps Dolby vs DTS , the rest is not a format , as far as I know is Enhance that is all.

Dolby is no saint herself...recall the time that it forces upon manufacturers and consumers with their unilateral decision to force their proprietary DSP mode - i.e. Dolby Surround Upmixer (DSU) to only be able to work with Dolby content and not with DTS. This created an uproar and backlash which Dolby later relented and continue to allow cross upmixing of DSP with DTS content as well. This is Dolby being a bully. Anyhow Dolby is indeed a force to be reckoned with after so many years in the cinema and home theater sound mix.

For myself, DTS always sounded better than AC3 on my setup.  I dunno why.
