I can't see me going with the proper Atmos setup because I'm not about to rip apart a perfectly good ceiling. Perhaps the reflecting type might be in the cards in the distant future if/once they've been proven to be viable.

BTW, I watched Eric Clapton/Steve Winwood 'Live in Madison Square Garden' Blu Ray for the first time with my pair of EP-800s in the mix. Really tight, quality bass from a superbly recorded concert...

I want subs so good I feel the brrrrrp of anti aircraft guns.
Or feel the water win as the plane slams into the ocean in Cast away.
Or feel the creaking steel reverberations as the sub in U-571 dives to the bottom.
Maybe the percussion from a synchronized gun shot by an honour guard.

Do you have a link to them? I could not find them on the Bryston web site.

Non-standard RAIDs can recover deleted files. Anyone who says RAID protection is only for failed drives is lying.

I don’t think they've been released yet.

I'm looking forward, admittedly with some trepidation due to the warnings, to experiencing 'Edge of Tomorrow', ha!

The speakers cannot have their angle changed to point towards the listener's position. From what I read, these are downward firing only. Something along the lines of the Niles DS7FX with its "Fully Pivoting Woofer Assembly Focuses The Bass And Midrange Directly Into The Listening Area". That way I can put the speaker in the Top Front position and point it towards the seats which are at the back of the room.

I'm not entirely convinced that aiming the woofer from in-ceilings at the MLP is the best idea. Surrounds yes, Atmos I'm not so sure.
Objects with xyz coordinates couldn't be mixed with unpredictable speaker orientations.

These do have aim able tweeters just in case.

They should match my current set up beautifully, my minds made up.

Thanks for the info...but I am going to keep looking for speakers that can send the sound to where I am, instead of where I am not. All other speakers are pointed towards the listeners, it would be odd to suddenly stop doing it.
