Took a while, but finally caught up on the thread. And it looks like I missed out on some 215RT for sale...darn...would've been perfect for my home office.
. I hate you
Btw, almost everyone has Atmos on their AV already...it's called Heights. Take a couple of spare speakers and either hang'em above your seats or aim them 45 degrees at the ceiling. Rerun Audyssey and done.
Majority of the movies I saw in the last 15 months was in a theater equipped with Atmos. Aside from the fantastic Atmos trailer demo, I never walked out thinking about any ceiling sound effect from the movie itself, even though this theater has the best sound (levels, surround, bass) worth buying a movie ticket for...Maybe if they turned off the Ceiling channel, maybe then I'll miss it...who knows.
But knowing myself, I'll pick up the Marantz SR7009 and test Atmos out in home before making up my mind...for now, I'm skeptical Ceilings will add any more benefit than what Heights already kinda-debatably do.
