when I get motivated, I can't be stopped. 20+ hours this weekend into installing my new ceiling speakers, Denon 7200WA and the Onyko 5010 2 channel amp for my rear ceiling speakers. Running the wire and cutting the MDF to hold the speakers took a good bit of time.
This is my config below except I have 2 subs.
Onkyo 5010 is a highly rated, afforable 2 channel amp for driving the rear TRR and TRL speakers.
I spent a few hours with a basic tune and jumped right in with some of the Dolby ATMOS demos. Wow, really impressive sense of 360 sound, I have the ceiling speakers in a very good location in proximity to the seats.
'The Encounter' audio demo is amazing played at reference level. Also very impressed with the Star Wars Battlefront ATMOS soundtrack, this is a 3 minute demo of live footage from the game. sounded and looked amazing.
Just in time for Pacific Rim UHD SDR BT2020 with the ATMOS sound track. I still have more work to do, but it's nice to finally have a full 18Gbps capable AVR so I don't have to keep splitting the signal on all my sources.
