    Ok ok i know it's not out yet!.
    But does anyone know when/if this is going to become true?
    Are Dolby working on anything after 5.1EX?
    or DTS 6.1?

    Dts have (quite a while back) announced a high resolution 24/96khz (presumably 6,1 compatible) format.
    Dolby (quite sensibly IMHO) are quite happy with the current status.

    DTS can IMHO go up to 12 channels, it was designed that way. But I assume you are aware that Dolby is not related to that!?
    Dolby has recently released DPL II but so far I heard nothing about any future (discrete) formats, besides, do we really want another format? Me not.
    MPEG-MC (multi-channel) was BTW designed for 7.1 (2 add. side speakers).

    .
    ...me, I'm holding out for the new, soon-to-be-thrown-on-the-market 12.4 'STUPENDO' octophonic sound system - which will leave all currently available and planned-for-the-near-future versions of both DD and dts in the dust... mark my words!

    Oh, I thought it's 10.2 "only"!? Speakers in front, behind, beside and above you ... where will this end?

    Time to go and buy a new house or a warehouse loft. :D

    Huh - the "STUPENDO" octophonic format is yesterdays news i'm waitng for the new "DO.ME.A.FAVOUR" 24/96khz 21.7 set-up, i heard one at Richer Sounds and the man said sherwood were releasing a new 21 x 300 watt (with 7 discrete sub outputs) next week and they would definately definately have one on thursday for £150 in the shop or £140 on the net or £135 in What HiFi (but it will probably be out of stock) or £250 if he doesn't like the look of you.
