I am back here again to talk Atmos! Seems to be a popular discussion these days.
I read most of the Dolby materials and I'm not sure that I would need anything other than good quality direct radiating in ceiling speakers to achieve Atmos. Most of the home theater diagrams depict a pair of front ceiling and a pair of rear ceiling speakers.
I currently have:
Triad Gold Monitors (L, C, R)
Triad Silver Subwoofers x 4
Triad Silver In Wall Surround x 4 (LS, LR, LBS, RBS)
Frankly, I was looking for two more sets of speakers for the ceiling. First, a pair of front ceiling speakers to satisfy Dolby IIz for now (front high channels) and then be available for Atmos in the future. Second, a pair of rear ceiling speakers to satisfy Atmos. Given the fact that for Dolby IIz, these are effect speakers and I'm not too sure how much specific Atmos effects will eventually be present, I was looking to match the Silver Surrounds. I actually have sort of settled on either 1) the InWall Silver Satellites to match the surrounds or 2) Inwall Silver Mini Monitors to sort of match the front Gold Monitors. I'm not sure that going all the way to Gold Mini Monitors in the ceiling for front high or Atmos effects is necessary.
Any opinion on which ones would be best for the application?
