I went to the ADA room at the Hyatt and ADA was running a Marantz SR7009 with a Datasat amp and IIRC 5.1.4 Triad speakers. The point of the demo was more a personal presentation of Dolby Atmos by Richard from ADA than anything else, to show that the technology was "revolutionary" and could sound good even in a rather ordinary, untreated hotel room with "expert consulting help" to set up the room, as Atmos put the listener "back to basics". No Audyssey, no TEQ running Trinnov - I was told that Audyssey was a machete, and their ADA TEQ that could run Trinnov wasn't appropriate for the Atmos configuration. In fact, no REQ at all.
We did get a fair amount of exposure with the Dolby Surround Upmixer, which did offer a nice expansion of the stage to get a sense of envelopment above the listener. He played BluRay cuts from the Rolling Stones and Yanni, of all people.
FWIW, Richard did say that they're working on a Class D 16 channel amp producing 150W/channel at 8 ohms, but I don't think it was in the room.
