Yamaha has just announced that a DTS:X™ firmware update is now available for several of the company’s notable AV Receiver models to enable the latest three-dimensional listening experience at home.
The Yamaha CX-A5100 AV Pre-amp Processor, as well as the company’s AVENTAGE RX-A3050, RX-A2050and RX-A1050 AV Receivers all currently support Dolby Atmos® and are now more versatile with the addition of DTS:X for home theatre use.
DTS:X and Dolby Atmos are both object-based surround formats that place and move sounds freely in a three-dimensional axis, including overhead, as movie mixing engineers intended. These new sound technologies are designed to engage the audience by creating realism through a lifelike multi-dimensional audio experience.
With the CX-A5100, Yamaha enables CINEMA DSP (a proprietary sound field processor) to be applied to both DTS:X and Dolby Atmos during playback. By applying CINEMA DSP, the user will be immersed even further and feel as if they are right in the middle of the scene.

DTS:X is the next generation object-based, multi-dimensional audio technology from DTS. Unbound from channels, DTS:X conveys the fluid movement of sound to create an incredibly rich, realistic and immersive soundscape – in front of, behind, beside and above the audience – more accurately than ever before. DTS:X offers the ability to automatically adapt the audio to the speaker layout that best fits the space, from a television’s built-in speakers to a home surround theatre system to a dozen or more speakers in a commercial cinema.
