"Unless you are seduced by the aesthetics of the high-end audiophile offerings, there’s little to be gained from leaving Emotiva’s room and wandering the halls of the show."
Mark - to be fair, AXPONA isn't really oriented historically toward home theater so much as the two-channel, audiophile (hi-res), and personal listening (DAC/headphone) crowd. If you want an HT-oriented show, CEDIA is still the place to be. I go to both shows and while AXPONA has gotten progressively more interesting, their core audience is still those audiences.
Having said that, it does seem like there's less HT rooms than the last show I went to in 2015. That year, along with the Seaton Sounds room having a 7.1 setup (not Atmos IIRC), there was an Atmos room with a Datasat and Triad speakers using their upfiring built-in modules, and I want to say another room with a Marantz and an Atmos setup.
