Good luck with enhancing this and figuring out what this genre is.

Most of remasters are not good, but 40KB AI script is better :D You clearly have a deep understanding of music and algothms in general I see.

DSEE is an upsampler and no person that cares for audio quality uses it.
There are many gimmick upsamplers on the market - Dsee is just one of many.

360 audio is great, but it's essentially just a binaural audio we have for decades - it's nothing new, I have some recording in this format and it sounds good, especialy it helps to reduce listening fatigue.
Unlike other solutions Sony does not implement headtracking, so their 360 audio is half baked anyways ...

Once you "co... moreDSEE Ultimate was created to improve the quality of all digital music utilising AI to automatically improve audio frequency and bit rate in real-time. Both high and low ranges are improved taking each track close to High-Resolution Audio quality. It works with wired or wireless headphones, on local files and even streaming services. By this technology the COMPRESSED audio quality can upscale close to high resolution audio. For example, the LG 3D Sound Engine is an audio processing recognizes the type of content and optimizes the sound accordingly for a "MoRe cinematic" quality, it is NOT restore the compressed audio near "high-resolution"! Can't you see, the LG doesn't restore compressed audio near high resolution audio, it only optimized for cinematic audio!

Not only that the Xperia 1 II has 360 reality Audio and it was designed for 360 Reality Audio with unique HARDWARE decoding to optimize sound quality when listening to music on Tidal. Not only that it also coupled with Dolby Atmos sound for cinematic audio.

How's other. ..

Fearghast, 22 Mar 2020Oh believe me, the "eye things" are my favorite subject to resea... moreThat's because this forum isn't about toilet paper. I do that on a seperate forum. As for brand loyalty, its good to have loyalty as long as its not blind. I stick to brands I trust as it saves me time to decide on prodicts. Also, certain brands have better eyhics in place for manufacturing. As for refresh rates, Its as ll about convincing yourself you cant live without that rate. Most people wouldn't notice an issue (and haven't) until companies starting fighting for the highest rates. 120hz is going to look like garbage in your head once they tell consumers how buttery smooth 240hz is on a phone. Its marketing just like the 4k display, 108mp camera, 100x zoom, 8k recording.There are lots of psychology papers on these marketing ploys you praise/ discredit. People will become less happy with what they have once told its inferior to the next thing. Once purchased, its impossible to get an unbiased review because people tend to justify their purchase.

Senseurheart Kimochi, 22 Mar 2020Looks like you never know what is DSEE Ultimate technology. ... moreyou have been brainwashed by sony's bad marketing.
Once you "compress" the audio, there's no way to get the original quality back (especially mp3 files).
DSEE and the similar kind of upscaling techs is not more than just adding artificial fake effects to the already-worse audio.

Must be interesting to be a fanboy and meet a man, that does use Sony products but he does not praise them.
I wonder what it feels like ... I guess I never know.

Crystalizer? or other crap. Does it ring any bell?
I have Sony WH and WF headphones, Xperia 5 .. .and DSEE disabled ... what do you expect? It magicaly ad bits that sound good?

BTW: I read that page before, many times actualy, what do you need to explain?
Marketing indeed works on some people ... at least it seems.

Please learn more, I can't explain to a Sony hater, meaningless. .. all your negative comments show you don't get any news from Sony. Maybe all the news on internet are priority flooding with those "Marketing leaders" information.

I found someone are busy share their negative comments on Sony thread, is it the shady marketing? They even can't give a flagship to makes comparison and just giving a bunch of negative comments, that's must be have agendas!

[deleted post]TBH no real user is caring who made the screen, battery, charging port etc. only fanboys care for that to brag about it.
I as a user care not for a "Sony display", I care for a "good display". It's like hearing some sheeps "But Samsung did not make the display, Apple had to say the them how manufacture the best display!" ... laughable at best and sad when you realize another human typed that sentence.

Anything above 60 is great.

Anonymous, 22 Mar 2020You clearly have very little education on how the eye works. May... moreOh believe me, the "eye things" are my favorite subject to research.
Especialy when a lot of people tend to praise 24, 30 FPS in past as more than enough for human eye. Guess what, there are clinical and military papers proving them otherwise - even stating 300+ FPS still has a benefit for most of the healthy humans.
Same goes when someone is citing my other PR BS named "retina", that should be more than enough ...
No brand deserves my attention, only final, real products on the real market do. Being loyal to a brand is sign of a weak mind not being comfortable with changing perspective (that's my personal perspective and I know a lot of people are loyal for some reason, but that is not my thing and I really do not like when someone is defending a brand, just because it allowed a user to buy their product). I don't see you praising your manufacturer of toilet paper.

Maybe you arent brand loyal because you can't comprehend enough to research each brabd. You waut for a pretty advert to point you in the right direction

Creator mode can't match offering by LG V series with their manual mode (not that I care for it).

Sony did not pioneer on entertainment ... their last decent entertainement adition was LDAC. It's glorious and it already has two alternatives with same results.
If you think CDs, Walkmans, old Bravia glory days ... don't care.

For capturing user content 21:9 is pretty much useless - most, if not all the sensors are 4:3, you can crop your 21:9 if you want.

I don't use gestures on my Swift, I am much ... swifter ... with normal typing (haptic be damned).

+ I don't care for big phones, if I would maybe Galaxy Ultra would look like a decent device for my needs ... it doesnt and the size in one of the reasons why. I need a phone, camera and multimedia device in pocket, I have 5 tablets in my home ... to do tablet things, not to mention laptops and desktop PCs.

Not to even mention limit's of one eye ... eye is much more capable to enjoy 60-300+ Hz than 300+ PPI. You really sound like "blind" fanboy :D that's one thing I never be for something as worthless to me as a brand.

Fearghast, 21 Mar 2020Good luck getting anything on the left top side of the Xperia 1 ... moreThe phone size become larger these days, most of the phone you can't getting the left top side with one hand, so your negative comments apply to all big phone, even I use a 19.5:9 ratio phone and 18:9 ratio phone as examples, my thumb still can't reach the top left side! What I prefer is the width of a phone, much slimmer and narrower phone must easier to grasp in one hand and the proper key size are almost the same, but if you get wider keyword mean your thumb can't easily reach the left side of the phone. I am using SwiftKey and it is fine I adjust the keyboard size slightly taller for better typing experience, even it is a default size I found fine too. What word misspelling the SwiftKey automatically correct the it, but I think the hardware keyboard must have better haptic than on-screen keyword and less misspelling than on-screen keyword, but SwiftKey come with gesture typing provide the typing more efficiently and much easier. Therefore 21:9 nailed it, because it has more space to keep everything in one notchless beautifully screen.
21:9 ratio in real web pages (Desktop site in Chrome Browser ) are great too because 21:9 display keep more content than the shorter phone, it has more content shown, when using the on-screen keyword the taller phone has more web page content, scrolling left and right is much easier to reach because the web page width doesn't longer than scroll down or scroll up. For zooming it is ease of use, even you pinch it to zoom, for huge zoom-in just pinch up and down, it zoom much quickly than chubby phone.
I use split screen and floating window, therefore I can say both are need more space, especially when the on-screen keyword use up half of the screen...
For capturing, 21:9 ratio get more content and user can do photography composition much easier than how busy you helter skelter.
Sony pioneer on entertainment, this Xperia 1 ii has 4K HDR display and creator mode, you can't find on other competitors. Even the Samsung Z Flip come with 22:9 display ratio or S20 20:9 display, some China phone with weird ratio 19.5:9 are totally far behind Sony. The cinematic standard 21:9 display ratio plus the Dsee Ultimate audio technology will have the Greatest immersive experience!
