It is unclear whether more manufacturers will seek THX certification, and whether or not consumers will care about it. I, for one, would much prefer to see a list of all models that fail certification, if any, along with the reasons for their failure, though that will never happen.
That is very interesting, a list. but, like you said, I do not see that happening. Though I feel having a standard, I always felt would protect the consumer, and promote good quality control from all the manufacturers. However, I have no documentation to prove that.
