Re: Re: Dolby Atmos
I think Bose doesn't want to pay the Dolby ATMOS licensing fee, there are plenty of titles available and there are streaming titles as well, plus older titles can be remaster for Dolby ATMOS. So to say Bose is waiting is a silly excuse, as just about every other company is not waiting. Also, Bose likes to makes things simple for the customer, 5.1 even with Bose is still a lot of set up, it takes a few hours at least to get everything set up correctly and neatly. Then you need to learnt the new technology. Now if Bose comes out with a 5.2.1 Atmos Life Style system, we have at least 2 extra speakers, that theoretically should be on the ceiling, which means putting speakers on the ceiling and wires (even the wireless speakers have wires, and an outlet). imagine Bose telling there customers they need to have electrical outlets (2 of them) on the ceiling. This is the problem I think Bose is running into the most for there LS systems, that and the licensing fee they dont want to pay. Another poster mentioned a BOSE sound BAR with Atmos which is probably the most likely out come. If Bose wanted to they could Add atmos to the LS 650/600 and then sell people 2 extra speakers for the system. Anything is possible, the question is, is it the most cost effective way to go, probably not, they probably will come out with a LS 700/750 with the same speakers and add 2 extra atmos speaker for a 5.2.1, and the customers who own a 600/650 can trade there console in for the new console for a fee. I would love to compare an atmos system in the same room I have with the Bose system and see if it really adds that much more entertainment value.
