DTS Neo:X 11.1 Surround Sound Format Debuts


If five speakers are not enough to satisfy your surround sound needs, DTS has developed a new surround sound format to separate sound into 11 speakers, plus a subwoofer. The new 11.1 surround technology is called DTS Neo:X, claiming to be the next-generation of immersive 3D entertainment for home theater enthusiasts and industry audio professionals. For cinema, music or gaming entertainment, DTS Neo:X provides a semi-spherical sound field using an 11.1 speaker configuration adding height/wide speakers to create a natural, immersive, spacious and lifelike 3D surround soundscape.

You’ll definitely need a room large enough to accommodate 11 speakers. If the photo demonstrates an ideal room it would seem you would need a rectangular room at least 20 feet by 30 feet. Even with a theater of that size, why only seating for three people on the couch? Kidding aside, you’ll need a rather large, dedicated home theater room to reap the benefits of 11.1 surround. Then again, I may have said the same thing about 9.1 and 7.1 surround not too long ago.
