Bouncing sound waves off a ceiling.. doesn't this just seem silly altogether?

Just seems so gimmicky.. worse than 3D.
Really depends on what kinds of sounds are being reproduced. Sounds with lots of detail in the low end of the spectrum are going to be problematic...no doubt about it.

Yeah, but it might still be better than not having Atmos at all if you can't have in ceiling speakers. Are there not special filters to sought out the low end.

You're correct...in fact, word on the street is that the industry believes most Atmos at-home deployments will involve module type speakers (not ceiling mounted). I don't think you can filter the low end...that kind of filter will need to happen at the encoding stage. Thus, the real question is what kind of content movie houses choose to encode in presence channels. More dynamic content would involve sounds that reach into a wide spectrum of sound (and benefit ceiling mounted speakers)...while more limited range (higher-end) content might play better to module based systems.

We won't know what direction they choose for quite some time.

I can't twait o demo both versions. When all the press was talking about demos at Dolby labs, a lot of them said the up firing presentations were at least as good as the in ceiling ones. I still wrestle with this, and maybe I just don't want believe it, but it seems hokey to me. Dubious even. I can't discredit their claims however, as I've not heard either version. I do know that atmos "core" tracks seem to render more realistically. Not sure why, but I'm sure its scientific. Lol Fwiw, I think x.x.4 content is above 180hz. This might be only in "module" systems to combat localization though.
