DTS:X automatically adapts audio to existing channels and speaker setups, so no specific speaker layout is required. Upping the ante, DTS Virtual:X adds nuanced, three-dimensional sound without height or rear speakers. Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer also allows you to experience immersive sound without the additional speakers. So no matter which format your media uses, you’ll get the enveloping sound experience.
