DTS:X is ready to take on Dolby Atmos

10 Apr 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

Dolby recently started rolling out Dolby Atmos that can position audio in three dimensional spaces by using “object-based” technology. After some delays, DTS is now ready to take on Dolby Atmos with DTS:X.

DTS: X is object-based audio

DTS:X uses object-based audio technology, too. It is not tied to prescribed speakers but instead mixed for a three-dimensional space around your listening position for a better surround experience.

DTS:X supports up to 32 speaker positions and will support up to 11.2 speaker output channels on the first products for home use. DTS:X is also backwards compatible with all existing DTS systems.

DTS:X will start rolling out this summer in movie theatres and home audio products. A movie theatre in Las Vegas has already had the new system installed. DTS says that nearly 90 percent of AVR and surround processor manufacturers have agreed to integrate the technology.

Receivers with DTS:X
  • Denon - AVR-X7200W available now / DTS:X firmware upgrade later in 2015
  • Integra - launching several models by Fall 2015
  • Marantz - AV8802 available now / DTS:X firmware upgrade later in 2015
  • Onkyo - launching several models by Fall 2015
  • Pioneer - details to follow
  • Steinway Lyngdorf - P200 Surround Sound Processor available Summer 2015 / DTS:X firmware upgrade in Fall 2015
  • Theta Digital - Casablanca IVa available Summer 2015
  • Trinnov Audio - Altitude32 available now / DTS:X firmware upgrade Summer 2015
  • Yamaha - launching DTS:X ready models in Fall 2015

    Dolby previously said that Atmos is coming to Blu-ray and streaming services. DTS has not confirmed the exact details but says that DTS:X can be supported by DVD, Blu-ray and streaming services. We assume that DTS:X will also be part of the new Ultra HD Blu-ray standard. The first players are expected to launch in late 2015.
