    I've been looking at moving to an Atmos setup, but was wondering how that would work out with the nanoAVR HD, since it can only handle 8 channels and I would be running 10 channels (9.1 setup). I haven't actually implemented the nanoAVR HD in my system yet, though I already purchased it, and...

    Hello, I've not been on the forum for a long time and sort of lost track of the newest tech. I've come across this new Atmos offering where speakers are being placed in the ceiling. My question to you all is does there exist a decode format that supports the Height, Wide, and Atmos at the same...

    Hi, Complete novice here, and know just enough to be dangerous. Looking for a receiver that will do the following, and i'm having difficulty wading through the sea of receivers with multi-zones that I don't need. I basically want a 7.2.2 setup (I think). To me, that means Left Front Sub...

    Went to see the Kingsmen in Dolby Atmos and comparing it to my home theatre set up which is 9.2 with wide channel ..... Not that great.Why? When I listen to normal Dolby movies in theatres I feel like the center channel always over powering and the rest of the channel having strong mid and...

    Object Based Audio is one of the more exciting Home Theater tech advancements in recent years. Not only does it add a sense of dimensionality to sound that we’ve yet to experience, it’s also adaptive to varying setups. Because Atmos and DTS-X code sounds as objects (as opposed to assigning...

    Hey all I am wondering if there is an ideal volume for a 6.5" in-ceiling speaker backer box. My joist space will be insulated and drywalled long in advance of knowing what speakers I'll end up with. Budget focused on building right now. So far I am planning on 1 cubic ft. The box dimensions...

    As I continue to plan my home theater system, an epiphany struck me. The Marantz SR7009 I am purchasing is Dolby Atmos certified. In addition, the Kliptsch Reference RF-7 5.1 system can be configured with an additional two Atmos enabled speakers bringing about one of the recommended Atmos...

    Hi folks, recently I've made the upgrade from a 7.1 to an Atmos 7.1.2 system, by integrating two new Atmos-enabled speakers into my existing 7.1 system. I'd now like to optimize placement of the side and rear surrounds--bringing them down from their current locations closer to ear level, per...

    Well I've decided to give Atmos a try in my HT. For reference, here is my existing HT thread in the finished rooms forum. It's never really "finished" though is it... I have used various combinations of Dolbly PLIIz including front height and front wide channels, and so far I've been happy with...

    I know there are a lot of bright people on this forum that are into making their own speakers... So since Dolby Atmos is the latest, and requires special speakers for the height channels... I decided to put this thread up to see what designs people are thinking of building to make their own...

    How's it going gentlemen? Was wondering if any of you have built any speakers or repositioned any for Dolby Atmos? Recently ran across a pair of R series Uni-Q drivers that are the same used in upcoming (may be available now) KEF R50 that sits on the towers. Trying to avoid ceiling speakers...

    I have been looking at the Dolby Atmos stuff. That's a ways off for me, but it got me thinking. They have speakers that aim up to reflect off of the ceiling to simulate ceiling speakers. I have a Denon 2113 that has the Dolby Prologic 2z. I'm in a rental right now so I don't want to mount the...
