I found a few new ATMOS titles crackle when I send the audio via hdmi bitstream to my AVR. When LPCM is sent the crackle is gone. This means the AVR is not able to properly downmix or unpack some new ATMOS titles.

It sucks ATMOS is not fully backward compatable as promised, but time marches on. A new AVR is on the horizon I guess.

I have been doing some testing with a denon 3300 I recently installed in a setup. I might go back to mainstream AVRs, maybe a 6300/7400. Not sure I like the idea after having an Arcam. The new Arcam AVR supporting immersive audio is ridiculously overpriced.

In other news the completed towers are doing great. A wide dispersion setup like these are making me rethink my setup. Changes on the horizon.

I was also hurt when I found out that ATMOS is not fully backward compatable. But that's the way life is.

Not sure what isn't backwards compatible. Every Atmos track contains a Dolby True-HD (also capable with Dolby Digital 5.1) core track that plays if you don't have Atmos capable gear. If it playing with crackles in it, then it is a setup or gear problem. Maybe there is a firmware upgrade that solves the issue.

Mr Nick!

Glad you are still around. This should probably be my last post in this thread.

I'm not really in forum activity anymore. You are right, a software update may solve the issue. Unfortunately, my AVR is pretty tired and Arcam are not supporting it anymore in terms of new firmware.

Luckily the OPPO 103 will transcode to PCM properly (so far) so it is a viable workaround.

In the last couple of years I have left the consumer realm and have gone professional. I now co-own a firm that does custom installs and design consulting. Its tough going but rewarding.

Lots of math, drafting and hard work in the shop. I just don't pursue audio the same way I used to. Cheers all! Thanks for reading the thread. Hope you enjoyed the ride. smile

Yeah, I am still here almost every day. I just don't have much new to talk about.

I love the room.

This is really a nice software. Appropriately named too. Once you get past the learning curve, you can't live without it.

Yes, quite useful software. Also, the learning curve is not that steep.
