    Is THX still a thing these days? Used to be back in mid 2002 than it was first release. Plenty of receivers, aidop equipment and DVD (mainly Lucas Film and Disney) were THX certified and had THX soundtracks. Now you don't see it much at all and most of the AV equipment you buy doesn't handle THX.

      Thought it was more of a certification to say it can produce certain quality sound.

      Also I find video has improved a lot over the years, but sound in some ways hasn’t. It reached great quality decades ago.

      THX Loudspeakers certification

      AXIAL FREQUENCY RESPONSE

      This describes a loudspeaker’s ability to reproduce audio accurately. Our test confirms the axial frequency response is balanced and flat.

      VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL DISPERSION

      Not everyone gets the middle seat when watching a movie. So we test the off-axis response to make sure it is smooth with no audible comb filtering, making every seat in the room the sweet spot.

      OUTPUT VERSUS DISTORTION

      This test ensures the speaker can reach the high volumes necessary to achieve THX Reference Level without creating audible distortion or artifacts.


      (Artifacts? How about arsefacts, THX.)

      Doesn't seem too rigorous a programme. You just have to engineer the dispersion patterns to THX specs, and I don't know a single speaker designer who doesn't aim for the lowest possible distortion and the highest possible output anyway.

        "OUTPUT VERSUS DISTORTION" - They're talking about signal to noise ratio.

        THX is still a guarantee that it reaches a certain quality level.
        IE: if Logitech could label their whole speaker range THX they would, but only the top of their range meets the THX standard.

        Once you get into audiophile territory THX is pretty meaningless, but for consumer level audio gear I would 100% go for THX over non-THX all things being equal.
