    Some people are happy with 30+ year old speakers, I don't know if stuff ages bad but at least it doesn't really get obsolete, the same way a 100-year-old table or chair is fine.
    The bigger (and possibly unfortunate) issue is often room accoustics or size.

      DM603 S2 is a big floor speaker and played with more power. DM 601 S2 is a small desktop speaker and is used like studio monitors and played with a low power. No cracking.

        Just for the record: somebody came up with a patch for this sound issue just yesterday. I have tried it and even the current/more advanced audio formats are finally working now!

          A couple of notes inspired by your writing. Do not shout in the internet, do not blame different opinions as trolls, show the WWW link the magical patch so that others can use it, list the titles that have multi channel audio sound effect tracks.

            The patch is in the bug report that this Phoronix article is about:

            https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101900#c31

            And I cannot list thousands of titles here. To give you an overview, this is a list of movies with 7.1 tracks:

            http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/search...rtby=relevance

            -> 2393 MATCHES

            Movies with 5.1 tracks:

            -> 17241 MATCHES

            Of course these numbers only include the bigger international movie productions, which are in that database.

            So multi channel audio system is useless at home.
            When saying that the numbers above are only very few movies and that multi channel audio is useless then this is pure trolling. Nuff said.

              Titles like Wonder does not have multi channel audio sound effect tracks, background music is not sound effect. List movies like star wars where you have 3d audio explosions and vehicle sounds.

                ... and there goes the trolling. I bet you haven't seen any recent movie in the past years. Of course there are no explosions in movies like Wonder, but there is certainly more than just background music as you call it. A sound effect can also be the steps of someone coming from behind the audience. You'll loose all of these simple effects on a plain old stereo setup and you certainly won't get the level of immersion that the director intended. And since you have cited Wonder, this is what the review says about it's sound quality:

                The film also utilizes occasional source cues [...] which also utilize the surround channels effectively.
                Source: blu-ray.com

                You might not like these effects, that's a different story. But saying that multi channel audio system is useless at home is just pure trolling. That's why I said that I won't feed any trolls (which in fact I just did, sorry for that).

                  OK, Wonder is bad example, I did not check, but in your list most of the movies do not use multi channel sound effects, one example is Sound of Music 1965. Listing all 7.1 and 5.1 audio movies does not prove nothing, so list the titles that have multi channel audio sound effect tracks.
