Pre-Pro question - I currently have a 7.1 amplifier in a 7.1 speaker setup. For my smaller man cave, I can see adding four height speakers, maximum, for a Dolby Atmos configuration.
I believe I will need a pre that can handle Dolby Atmos processing. Can I still use my 7.1 amplifier or do I need the equivalent power per channel? Will this be discrete channels (not matrixed)?
