Aha, there we go. No Slashdot Mars rover story is complete without a report from K'Breel and the Council of Elders.
Thank you for keeping this up, Tackhead.=)
Who cares? It means about as much today for the quality of the audio as UL certified.
THX wasn't even a technology, it was just a spec and certification - glorified QA with a big price tag.
The reason it's not relevant now is it basically devolved to big speakers and bass since that's all anyone noticed. Current theater effort like Dolby Atmos will provide *much* better audio quality, and still plenty of volume and rumbling bass.
If you manage to hit the camera square with a paint pellet, it already got you on camera...
