This technology will be your ticket to a movie theater in your living room. After you use it once, it will be impossible to return to the plain old audio since the difference is significant. This object-based surround sound technology is special because of its versatility. For example, you do not have to use a certain number of speakers. With DTS: X, you can arrange your home theater system speakers any way you want. Moreover, no matter whether your system has additional height channels.
