I don't have a very large room and my seating is only 36" from the back wall, so I'm initially planning on mounting two ceiling speakers right above the seating ( middle top height ) and seeing how it sounds using my current front height speakers, which are mounted right up against the ceiling and pointed right at the main LP, as front height for Atmos. Hopefully, the Denon X7200 will be able to switch from Neo:X to Atmos without having to change amp assigns or bi-wire.
I also have a pair of speakers mounted just like the front height but in the back corners of the room which I no longer use. They were part of my old 5.x setup before I put in-wall speakers behind the seating and put the old JBL towers on the sides. I wonder if I could use these as back top height for Atmos if I can get a 13.1 capable receiver with pre-outs.
