Also, I'm surprised that you're using surround (non-direct radiating speakers) for your heights when all of your others, including your traditional surrounds, are direct-radiating. Did you consider RB-62IIs or RB-82IIs instead of RS-62IIs for your heights?

And +1 to Schwa's point - why did you decide on the rs for your heights?

There must be some difference in rear speaker placement if one is using non-direct versus direct speakers. Thanks for reading this!

if you want atmos you need a A3040 which gets a firmware update in fall to do atmos 9.1.2 with external amp
any reason why u choose a NAD T977 PRO 7-channel amp ? the A3040 with an external 2 channel amp has enough power to drive all speakers.
I'm going atmos too and i wanted to get a A3040 together with an Advance Acoustic X-A160 http://www.advance-acoustic.com/en/p...l/id/112/sec/1
to amp the fronts and so i can use all 11 channels.
as pointed out.. why the choice for the RS when the rest of ur setup is direct radiating speakers ? the wide radiating RS would do not much good for the heights and atmos sound.
I guess I like the whole sound from above without being able to pin point the exact position and give the greater feel.
I had a RB61ii and sold them to get the RS62ii I dont really know why but I kinda like the sound of di-polar speakers.
In the room I have the RS62ii I was goin to hope it filled the roof
The reason I went the T977 was the power of the RF82ii and RC64ii and the yammy could do the 4 Heights ( yammy by reputation have a tendency to over state the power ) to give them abit more head rtoom as I use them for movies alot and music in stereo .
I also though about Bi-amping the centre and 2 fronts if that wouls work and use the yammy to run, S, SB, H's if I would benifit
