It's interesting that Samsung so far refuse to add support for a sound format like DTS-HD Master Audio.

 

Perhaps Samsung doesn't think it is used enough to be worth the time to add support.

 

I mean, it has only been one of the most used sound formats on BD-discs since 2010....

Any more updates Samsung? Keen to learn when we can expect the new firmware update or confirmation at least that DTS-X support is possible and being considered?

It has been a few weeks, so I wanted to update this blog.

Please Samsung send out the next firmware with a DTS-X/HD!

I have been very excited about the possibility of the DTS-X/HD update coming very very soon but... Today I talked to their customer care specialist only to hear that the upcoming firmware update for K950 will NOT bring DTS-X. So we might need to just wait for N950 or N850, which comes in Summer Smiley Sad

I'm not really bothered by the lack of DTS:X since I understand that Samsung need something that will make N950/N850 sell better. I get that.

 

But not updating with DTS:HD Master Audio is just...just....it's such a letdown for everyone with a HW-K950. A nuttkicker of gigantic magnitude.

 

And don't get me started on LPCM or RGB....

Its so disheartening to see samsungs promo guide on the front of avs fourm front page still promoting dtsx as one of the features now and for the last several weeks. Almost illegal miss representation wouldn’t you say?

It's a bit disapointing when Sony adds DTS:X support back in september for their atmos soundbar but Samsung doesn't...

I agree. Please add DTS X to this system.

Just adding myself as another user waiting for a DTS X update, samsung now has the only Atmos soundbar that has not been upgraded to add this feature

Just Incase you guys don't remember some mentioned this

This is from another firmware thread on this forum where a user has been in contact with support:



”New Firmware coming soon if you ask Samsung support. Hope it will arrive very soon and soon not equal to Q4 2018”



Very interesting! And fingers crossed ... again.
