The advantage to atmos, beyond more channels, is how sound is handled. Since its object oriented different room configurations can play the sound from a more appropriate channel. It also significantly reduces post release dvd production time.

Re: Atmos/ DTS-x, really worth the upgrade?

I just recently went to 11.2 sound using Yamaha's proprietary Cinema DSP HD3 technology (Aventage RX-A3020). I currently have no desire to go Atmos now that I've heard what the HD3 tech does!!! I had a DSP-1 in the late 80's early 90's - I loved that processor but it lacked a center channel - this one has everything I need and creates a very immersive atmosphere !!!!

Once tweaked - it has some of the best surround modes since Fosgate Audionics model 3A 70mm mode! It will handle 192khz/24bit on all channels and modes so it works great with Jriver. Yes Atmos and others have actual object based surround, but for me HD3 is immersive enough indeed. When I can follow the crow from "Brave" from my surround rear left, over my left shoulder go slightly to my right and settle at my center channel in one smooth pan.....that's good enough (let alone the quiet outdoors scenes)!!!!
