So if you have in-ceiling speakers for an Atmos setup (for example, 5.2.4), are you saying that the "Dolby Surround" surround decoder in the Yamaha 3060 receiver will use ALL of the speakers to play content? In other words, all of the speakers are used even if it's not an Atmos sound track? Does it work very well?
One reason I'm not certain whether to add the four in-ceiling speakers is because I thought they'd be doing absolutely nothing except for Blu-rays and other content that have Atmos tracks. It sounds like I'm mistaken about that. Can you clarify/confirm?
Also, I'm not clear what the differences are between surround decoders (Dolby Surround, Neural:X, Neo:6 Cineman, Neo:6 Music) and DSP sound programs (Standard, Spectacle, Sci-Fi, Adventure, Drama, Mono Movie, Enhanced, Sports, ... Hall in Munich ... Chamber, etc.). Do you pick one from each list, meaning pick one surround decoder and one DSP? I suspect I'm all sorts of confused, so hopefully you all understand the question. Thanks much.
