Dolby Atmos Home Theater System

Hi,


I am looking to buy a home cinema system.


I am interested in the Dolby Atmos 5.1.4, 7.1.2 or 7.1.4 setups but have a budget of $800.


I'm really looking for the cheapest option that will give me one of these setups, preferably 7.1.4 though.


I would also like the system to include a 4K UHD Blu-Ray player, the back (and side) speakers to be wireless, and have no tower speakers or overhead speakers (speakers would be upfiring/Dolby Atmos enabled).


The system would mainly be used for TV & movies but some music as well.


The TV room is quite large and is open to the kitchen. We would often turn the TV to face the kitchen so would need to turn off the home cinema system then.


The TV we have is a Philips 4K 49" Ambilight 49PUS6401.


I do not currently have an AV receiver, amplifier or Blu-Ray player.


I am quite new to this so it would be helpful if you could not use any technical terms or just explain them to me.


Thanks.

Not trying to be a negative Nancy here but you're going to have to up your budget considerably to achieve what you're looking for. The 4K UHD player alone is going to set you back around $400. That's before purchasing the AVR and speakers.

Should get Philips home theater as well so that you can use one remote to control both TV and home theater

Re: Dolby Atmos Home Theater System

I agree that the list of constraints is going to be tough to meet. Affordable wireless speakers will also take a big hit in quality, I would suggest not using wireless speakers. You may also pay an extra price premium for "Atmos enabled" top-firing speakers.

You could get an atmos receiver, and then get any old 7.1 speaker set, maybe with an extra a pair of matching surrounds, to configure how you like (5.1.2, 5.1.4, 7.1.2) and skip the top-firing stuff. Even going the affordable route likes this, you'll be at $600 range just with the speakers, no atmos AVR or UHD bluray player yet.


Also note that with universal control enabled via HDMI CEC, not everything has to be the same brand and can still work seamlessly.
