That's part of the reason I am not up to date on this like I used to be. Using Mezzmo as the server and XBMC for the client I just stream all of the embedded subs. There are still a few times when I prefer to burn the forced subs over foreign speaking parts then I don't have to mess with it.

That's excellent. Usually rentals get DTS or DD with some movies. I really don't care for Atmos. I rather have DTS-MA.

So far that appears to be pretty much Lions Gate.

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine

I just "downgraded" my Denon AVR 5308CI to a Denon AVR X5200W with Atmos. I added 4 ceiling speakers as per Dolby Specs. I upgraded all 7 speakers to B&Ws and am thrilled. I was on the fence about Atmos until I actually heard it in play. The Atmos 7.2.4 is a worthy upgrade and surpasses even the mighty DTS MA for sound immersion. I highly recommend it for anyone with the space or the resources. The DSU processing is incredible and fills the room with sound. Native tracks are limited but the DSU makes my favorite movies come alive. It is like watching/hearing them for the first time. The Dunes bitstream Atmos perfectly to the Denon AVR. Eagerly waiting for a true Denon AVR 5308CI replacement with Atmos.

Not too bad. I cleared out Best Buy Magnolia in Pembroke Pines Florida when remodeling. I grabbed CM10s (L and R), CM9s ( Surrounds) CM5s(Surround Back) CM2 (Center) all for 60-70% off. Could not pass it up. Always liked the way they sound and love the black gloss finish.

This is interesting as I just pulled the trigger on the X5200 (should have it tomorrow) and will be going with an Atmos 5.1.4 setup as I can't really do surround back speakers. I can't wait to get it all setup and see how it sounds.

My question is how does it do with non Atmos Movies? There aren't many of them out there yet but I believe that the receiver will still use the additional speakers if you want? Does it really add something to a Non-Atmos Movie?

As we'll as a multichannel listening mode "adds" to stereo content.

I was on fence for a while also. I really loved my 7.1 setup with the Denon AVR 5308CI. The DSU of the Denon X5200W adds more overhead effects and "opens up" the sound field to surround the listener with subtle but noticeable realism.
It definitely was worth the "downgrade" for me. I run 7.2.4 and look forward for more Atmos content. The DSU is worth the upgrade alone. TV shows and PC Games also benefit from it. In the Walking Dead, it was raining in one scene and the rain was coming from above. In Borderlands sounds also come from above if enemy is above you or in a helicopter.

Curious: What speakers did you use for the ceiling?

South Florida summers are tough, especially in the attic.

I'll have my external blu ray burner delivered tomorrow. Complete noob when it comes to ripping but I've decided to just dive in and see how it works out. I'll be ripping my blu ray collection to my toshiba external HDD into an MKV format. The toshiba will be hooked up to my Oppo 103D which should have no problem playing it. MakeMKV will be my software of choice so hopefully it won't be a hard learning curve.

Any one recommend any beginner sites/ resources for complete noobs? Where does one go to when they first start out?
