Dolby Atmos

I've recently upgraded to the Marantz sr7010 and here soon had plans to install 4 ceiling mounted speakers. After much research and some correspondence with Todd felt I might have a hole in the sound. So feeling as though I might as well go "all in" figured why not purchase 2 more rear speakers. On 4/18 I'll be completing my audio setup with 6 Klipsch rb-51 II speakers for a 7.2.4 setup. Here's to hoping for audio nirvana and impressions soon to follow.

Re: Dolby Atmos

Looking forward to this! How far are you from the back wall?

Probably way too close. I'd say about 6' away but this upgrade is more about what room I'll have in the future.

Re: Dolby Atmos

In my setup I find the Atmos channels fill the area better than just 7.2 does...it is not dramatic, but it is pleasing and subtle...well worth the mods to do it, IMO.

Re: Dolby Atmos

Don't see an issue there. I'm at 7' and it's great. I was afraid you were right up against the wall.

Coming from 5.2 I'm hoping for dramatic actually. I've read quite a few articles that said it's the biggest jump since HD. I guess I'll soon find out.

No, I've got some space behind our seating. While my room certainly isn't ideal I think it should work out fine.

I just bit the bullet and went to 7.2 up from 5.2 and watching my first 7.1 movie, Star Wars, I am enthralled. I am angry I waited so long and am now thinking of atmos...if I find any money for a new processor.

Ok, that makes me feel much better. My personal single greatest improvement was adding a real sub. I'm hoping for that type of improvement. Actually music sounds much improved from the 7010. Even low quality mp3's sound good now.

Add another sub or better yet 3 more, and you had better be sitting down when you hear it! It will absolutely blow your sock off.
