I do agree. Can't stop progress.

Beyond adding processor|firmware capable of decoding Dolby Atmos (or Auro-3D and|or DTS-UHD ...?) it's not clear how much more would be needed to turn this existing 2014 model year HTiB -- LG BH9430PW 9.1ch 3D Home Cinema System (link) (MSRP $799) -- into a competent Atmos 5.1.4 audio platform.
That's a nice looking system and a fine promo for it. But no, I was thinking about what the least capable AVR could be like and still be consistent with what has been promised for home-Atmos. I know people are expecting an extra 2 to 4 height channels in the AVR, but of course that would be expensive to make, and Atmos doesn't have height channels, anyway. Suppose there were no extra amplifiers, and only a little extra processing to merge the height sounds into the channel outputs of existing AVRs. Then you just need some way of getting the height sounds to come from up high, and we know at least one way they plan to do that -- tilt the tweeters. So there you go. Atmos on the cheap. Yes, some high frequency material on the same channel that shouldn't come from a height will also be reflected off the ceiling, but maybe that could be sold as an Atmos enhancement to ordinary 5.1 sound.

Maybe at cedia someone can ask the pioneer guys if the new sc series atmos receivers, can output 7.2.4 or 9.2.2 with external amps.
I really want the pioneer, but want to use my 9.1 setup with also new ceiling height channels.
So want to do 9.1.2.
The denon I beleive can(can use normal 9.1 config with front Heights) and add the extra ceiling height channels.

at what angle are these reflected speakers set at? Im guessing when it comes to overhead sound, we are not looking for pin point accuracy just a general flood of overhead sound or else you would have to be able to adjust the angles to make sure the reflection point hits where the listener would be located at...

Amazon's latest model of the Kindle Fire 8.9", due out Oct. 21, is advertised as having Dolby Atmos. It has only stereo speakers, so I don't see the point. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HCNHDN0/
