Re: Dolby Atmos

7.2.4 is what I'm planning as well. Have you looked into which AVR to get?

Yes sir. Already added the Marantz sr7010 and loving it. I'll also add that going 7.2.4 narrows your choices a bit.

In anticipation of my Atmos/DTS:X speaker install I thought I'd print off the user manual for my Marantz sr7010. All I can say is WOW! 375 pages and ran my printer out of ink.

Have you started looking and researching? I see you currently have a Yammy. The Yamaha Aventage 3050 was a really tough out for me and I almost went that direction. Glowing reviews!

Re: Dolby Atmos

Haven't started seriously looking yet. That Yammy did get a great review here (HTS), I'm just a bit torn with the YPAO. I'd much rather have Dirac Live. There aren't a lot of options for 11.2! Will probably give A4Less some business. More than likely Marantz or Denon.

You need to take your manual & have it bound!

Funny you mention having my manual bound. It just so happens my wife is taking it to work to have that done. As far as Dirac Live I'm with you in wanting it! The Anthem 710 would have been my choice had it been able to do 7.2.4 but it can't. My final 3 were the Marantz, Denon 7200, and the Yamaha 3050. I think any of the 3 would be great choices but the Marantz sounds so good especially with music. In the beginning it was hard for me to tell a difference between it and the Onkyo. My hearing isn't what it once was but everyone that comes over for a demo said movies sound better. When I ask them in what way everyone says it sounds much "fuller". I'm guessing that is the warmer sound that people describe with Marantz products. To be honest movies sound the same to me. Where I here a difference is with music and it is flat out night and day better. Even lowly MP3's sound great!

Today is the big day. I've got all six speakers mounted up and ready to go. By the EOD I'll be ready for some Atmos action tonight. Pics to follow.
