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)
