5.1, 7.1, 11.1-channel systems as adopted in conventional home theatres involve electronic component and speaker wiring that has become discouraging. Adverse effects due to excessive lengths are apparent. The increased popularity of Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro 3D configurations incurs a far greater number of loudspeakers. For instance, Dolby Atmos can support an enormous AV system of up to 24.1.10-channels. One can imagine the complication if conventional interconnects and speaker cables are used throughout. This does not only incur the cost of theatre construction and the difficulty in adjustments and calibrations but also causes inconvenience in repairs and maintenance. The issue has been frustrating home theatre construction personnel and owners alike.
