As of September 2016, my primary home theater system is (will be!) based around a new Denon AVR-X4200W, which upgrades its capabilities to include Atmos|DTS:X playback. However there are at present only four discs with immersive audio in my BD collection (two Atmos, two Neo:X|11.1), so I have also unboxed|reinstalled a Yamaha HTR-5860 (alternative badged RX-V657DD5.1|DTS5.1|CinemaDSP capable) AVR to provide additional elective upmix options for legacy content different from those offered by the Denon AVR-X4200W.

My room geometry considerations limit the Denon AVR-X4200W speaker configuration to FrontWide7.2.4 (delivering alternative playback modes FrontWide7.2.2 or 5.2.4); the Yamaha HTR-5860 speaker configuration is 5.2.2FrontPresence, with both processors using a common shared|switched (5.2) Middle|Bottom layers speaker set (L|C|R|SL|SR and Sub1|Sub2), but AVR-dedicated FrontWide and Height speakers. The consolidated speaker setup is FrontWide7.2.6.



(1) Common speakers shared|switched between Denon AVR-X4200W (AVR#1) and Yamaha HTR-5860 (AVR#2)
  • Front Left|Center|Right: 3x Yamaha AST-S1 (aka YST-S1)
  • Surround Left|Right: 2x Harman/Infinity Classia C255ES
  • Subs: (Left) 1x Harman/Infinity TSS-SUB450; (Right) 1x Jamo SUB 550

(2) Speakers available only to Denon AVR-X4200W (AVR#1)
  • Front Wide Left|Right: 2x Polk R50
  • Front Height Left|Right: 2x Harman/EPI 110 Series 3 Wall Plane (Pair#1: Located above Front Left|Right)
  • Top Middle Left|Right: 2x Cambridge SoundWorks Ambiance

(3) Speakers available only to Yamaha HTR-5860 (AVR#2)
  • Front Presence Left|Right: 2x Harman/EPI 110 Series 3 Wall Plane (Pair#2: Located outside Pair#1)

using Divoom timebox these days, it is really amazing speaker with multifunctions like fine audio, sleep aid system, customized clock, etc. The most special part is the LED pixel screen, my kids really love the pretty image and animation in it. It's worthy commend for speaker around some price level.

Glad for you that you like it. Fine audio? Uh...sorry but no.

What does one of those things cost? I can appreciate why kids would like it. The company apparently knows their target market.

System includes KEF R500 floor standing, R200C center, R100 surrounds, SVS SB2000 subwoofer, NAD T758 receiver, Pro-Ject RPM1 turntable w/ Sumiko Pearl cartridge, Bluesound Vault, Sony BDP-S480 BlueRay player, Samsung UN55JU6500F 4K LED TV, KEF M500 headphones, Sony CDP-CE500 CD changer, MCS System cassette deck. The last 2 items are dust collectors but will work if asked.

Longtime lurker but had the means and decided to do some MAJOR upgrades. Plan for these to be the last audio equipment I buy for a very, very long time - maybe ever (except for receiver of course).

JTR 228HTR left and right front mains (phantom center)
JTR Single 8HTs left and right surrounds
Tannoy 601dc in ceiling speakers x 4 for dolby atmos
Powersound Audio V1800 x 4 subwoofers
Denon 7200WA receiver
D-sonic M3-4000 7 channel amp and M3-800S stereo amp
