Hello CV,
I discovered that concert a while ago and it remains one of my favorite Blu-ray concerts!
Hope you enjoy it as well. Would have loved to have been present for that performance.
I have not heard it as a Atmos presentation only stereo. Please get back to us with your impressions of that format.
cheers,
Jeff

How does that work? Can you still get that style of Codec through the LFR? Or does it make more of a stereo presentation.
With pretty much all channels of an AVR/Processor going in to the speakers. Do say the rear of the speakers do the surround duty or vice versa?
Would you use zone2 for surround?{13} cannels.

I don't have a full Atmos setup yet. That won't happen until I get a new processor. My existing receiver does technically decode it, so I'm assuming there's some difference in the presentation, even if I don't have my ceiling speakers installed and in use yet. As it is, I'll get a 7.1 approximation (oh, actually 6.1, since I traded in my center channel as part of the upgrade to the Actives) of the Atmos experience.

I will try it both in stereo and in Atmos and see what I can pick apart.

Hey, sounds pretty good. I think someone recommended Dresden Dolls to me before, but I don't know if I ever made time.

It came today, so I listened to a bit, switching between Atmos and PCM stereo tracks. While the Actives achieve an amazing stereo presentation, having the surrounds going elevated it to the next level of engagement. It felt like I was in the middle of the audience. The difference wasn't subtle, so 1) I'm glad it justifies the presence of the M5HPs as surrounds, and 2) I wish more concerts were released on Blu-ray/UHD Blu-ray.

CV,
I have a copy of both the Blu-ray concert and the cd. Funny but I find the stereo mix of the cd to be more enjoyable than the Blu-ray stereo mix. To my ears at least, it sounds like on the cd more attention was paid to individual instruments when there was a “solo” or passage highlighting a particular performer. Even so, I like what Zimmer put together. Journey to the Line, Interstellar, Inception, Crimson Tide /160 BPM, all good. I must find an opportunity to hear the Atmos.
Cheers,
Jeff

Recently picked up a copy of the remastered Chicago Symphony Orchestra performance of 6 Rossini and 1 Mozart overtures directed by Fritz Reiner. The original recordings were from 1958/1959, Sony did a fine job with the remastering. A great disk for introducing someone to classical.

What a Wonderful World, Chris Botti with Mark Knopfler. What a complimentary pairing of talent.
