Is Hsu going to address the new Dolby Atmos standard?

Dolby Atmos is a software/encoding/decoding standard... don't see what HSU would need to do other then sell you more speakers to you for the extra channels present in Dolby Atmos.

I know maybe you are referencing the funky speaker pods some manufacturers are implementing to stack on existing speakers (to bounce sound off your ceiling) (though I believe the actual implementation is true over head speakers).

Right. All of our speakers can work with ATMOS, but if you're talking about the ceiling firing speaker, we're probably not going to make that speaker as it is dependent on the type of ceiling you have any your seating position in room. Also there are still omnidirectional properties to bass and we've heard instances where that muddies up the front sound stage. In terms of in-ceiling, you can use the HIW-1's for that or wait until we release an in-wall version of the CCB-8's.
