I was actually thinking of commecial theaters. To do Atmos would they need a Trinov processor, or are their commecial systems with similar channel management to our home units?

Good questions, I haven't seen clarification posted online yet. I would assume there are other brands/units available and most likely daisy chain able multi channel units.
Sounds like the Trinnov is limited to only 32 channels, including subs.
Commercial Atmos maxes out at 64 locations, not sure if that includes subs.
I wonder how long it will be before we see a truely capable processor with 34 outputs and LFE management.

My understanding is that the Trinov system is used a lot in post processing in the movie industry (think I'm using the right term).

Wasn't it Emotiva that tried to put the Trinov chipset into a pre-pro? It never made it to market.

I'm not sure how much of a market there really is for that many channels in a consumer market. Trinov processors are/were(??) expensive enough that I suspect most theater chains could not make a good business case for the investment.

So I got my four M3's installed and experienced my first Atom movie. Quite impressed. Although I really have to move my ceiling mounted QS8's now as its impossible to hear the difference between my QS8's or Top Rears from the MLP. The M3's sound really good for Atmos, but I can't help but think that aim'able tweeters would help even more.

So, now I need to find some older mounts for these QS8's TI's. Put them at ear level on the wall, run more cables....etc.
