While not a flagship model, I'll be going back to 5.1 with front heights, at least for now.
In our room native 5.1 sounds better than non-native 7.1 so I'll use what I have and maybe pick up a couple wall mounts and attach my spare surrounds to the back of my XD screen frame.
This should remove the urge to go Atmos for a while until I can figure out what do do about the crappy ceiling height.

I also just last year bought new gear and when i bought them i didn't have a clue that Atmos was even on the horizon. when i saw the announcement, Atmos was comming this Fall, I was Pissed that i would have to upgrade once again to a new AVR to enjoy atmos. that's why i will most likely just get the TX-NR737 for now to try it out in my Den, being its such a small room that doesn't need a lot of power. 5.2.2 will be just fine for me and being a first generation AVR i will not get a flag ship one as i know there will be upgrades coming

harrybnbad/others - (I hope this does not come across wrong.)
and you've gotten use out of your 4520, and can in the future....it's a great AVR!

maybe it's time for many of us with really great current AVR's to step back, take some deep breaths, and slow down on the urge to jump onto Atmos ....
(I'm a fellow 4520 owner with 11.2 also since Jan-2013)
Sure, if you are on the downslope of your AVR, say it's already +3 years use then planning for the object sound (atmos/other) upgrade as a HT hobbyist makes sense.

Heck - my family and I watched Divergent 2 nights ago and the 4520 processing to NeoX with the 7ch bed plus added front height/wides sounded superb, blows me away every time I watch a blu-ray.

IMO, we HT hobbyist need (not just harrybnbad but many here, including me) a "time out" from upgrading until 3-4 years since last major one.....let the newness flush itself out and all that.

No need for buyers/builders remorse, enjoy what we have and realize how truly fortunate we are compared to so many others.

fwiw, I'm upgrading in 2016/2017 4k pj , new object sound capable AVR, AT screen, baffle wall, speakers, etc.

Thats what i'm doing right now with my TX-NR616 i have no room for back speakers so i mounted two front high speakers up near the ceiling toed down toward my MLP, my room is only 15 x 10 feet and i'm sitting against the back wall with no place to put back speakers so i'm using front Highs and i'm amazed at how good it sounds in there. the sound envelops you and you do get phantom sounds coming from the ceiling. I will enjoy this for now, till my urge to go to Atmos get the better of me and get a new AVR
i watched Divergent when it came out the other night i thought the sound was incredible

I think most people are missing the main thing here... The 24 positions are most likely not meant to be used all of them, they are to be many enough for you to with good approximation to select which ones you are using.

Well, nobody is forcing you to kick your AVR to the curb. And if you are SOOOOO interested in Atmos that you are willing to ship it do Denon and pay them hundreds of dollars to upgrade the hardware..... why not simply sell the 4520 and put that money into an X5200 instead?

Technology moves quickly. Deal with it. The AVR-4520CI was relaeased two years ago. Expecting it to be able to support a major hardware/software advance is unrealistic. I never understand the hand wringing and self righteous outrage that happens every year when a new feature appears and owners of the models from the last year or two feel entitled to the new features. You have two choices: (1) don't get caught up in the urgency of the upgrade cycle and just be happy with what you have, or (2) get caught up in the urgency of the upgrade cycle and decide how much resources you are willing to devote to staying current. That's your choice, nobody is forcing you to do either one.

who in there right minds will use this many speakers for home use unless you have a small theater in your house most of us will have small rooms or living rooms and 7.2.2 or 5.2.4 will be just fine????

It's a theoretical maximum. Obviously it's not realistic or relevant for most "typical" home theater setups, even if you have a dedicated room. Considering the processors needed to run this type of setup cost 5 figures it's something that only people with VERY high end home theaters would ever consider.

It needs quite the room if it would not look ridiculous as well. I'm building with 13 'arounds' and adding nine more would place them silly close to eachother...

I think you would need a HUGE room to make anything beyond a 9.1.6 speaker layout really worth it, imho.

Any more than that and the gap between speaker angles is too small making all the extra speakers (and effort) rather trivial.

Not that it isn't fun to think about but I'm just a very practical person.

How difficult do you think selling to the same consumers Dolby Atmos for home? What percentage of consumers do you think are familiar with Dolby Atmos at this time, and then would willing to buy a upscale AVR with Atmos processing, along with necessary speakers or home theater modifications to take full advantage of BD's with Atmos soundtracks? I wonder?

Mind you I am not being negative just playing Devil's advocate.
None of that has anything to do with Dolby Atmos. And I am not being negative either - just playing Devil's advocate.

That's because you are set up for NEO:X which is an 11.1 layout. I'm not counting subs which is irrelevant for Atmos talk as it is.

When I said 9.1.6 that will include your wides and your front heights. Add in two more pairs of overhead surrounds and there you have it. You can call that 15.6 if you so incline but it's the same as my 9.1.6 which is relating to the layout.

Sooo.....

Step back? Not a chance!
Dolby ATMOS is one of the best new features in audio to come out in years!
I've been to ATMOS theaters and they are awesome.
The world is falling apart and I plan to have ATMOS installed in my HT on day one!

No, if I count my possible neo:x/dsx setup I have 15. I meant what I said, I have 11 speakers for 7 channels - three speakers each for the side surrounds.

I agree on the subs, just put the correct number for clarity.

I also have 11 speakers (with four ported 10" subs) in out tiny tv-room upstairs, same there... Three for each side surround.

Okay. Gotcha. That's pretty cool but (just giving some constructive criticism) you'd benefit from eliminating one of those pairs. At least in the back. You have two speakers within a foot. Might as well be a single speaker back there or just the two in the back corners. I'm sure you like how it sounds so I won't argue with you. Just my opinion.

I like your style, sir.

The two in the back are the back surrounds and yes, they should be slightly better spaced, they probably are compare to when the pic was taken too. ( All should be equdistant angle-wise, but I was lucky enough with the room as it is, I cannot put a speaker onto my son's bedroom door. )

( You actually have a higher need for many speakers in such a tiny room as this than in a larger to avoid localizing them. )

They actually don't sound anything at all as I cannot locate them, so I'm happy. Otherwise, given their cost, I would have downsized and moved some of them to the big cinema.

Thanks. Still building, though... Just cleaned a paintbrush. But I hope to plug the power in during this fall.

Time... Yes... Several hours each evening for 2,5 years. 3000 hours? Given my professional hourly rate, I definitely couldn't have afforded myself.

For me 9.2.2 will work great.

- Three B&W 800D2 (L/C/R)
- Four B&W 802D2 (SRWR/SR/SL/SWL)
- Two B&W 805D2 (SRB/SLB)
- Two in-ceiling right over the seats

Two JLAudio Subs Fathom F113

And a few years from now it will also be a bit more mature - I expect some growing pains with something this new. My Onkyo 3010 will certainly stay amazingly awesome for a few more years.

The next Dolby announcement is supposed to be next week. Hopefully, that's when they'll start announcing the first wave of titles. They'll almost have to otherwise they're not going to hit their fall release target promise.
