I just received this response directly from Pioneer...I'm a bit disappointed.
My initial email inquiry:
Inquiry Type:Features and Spec
Product Type : Home-Audio Video Products-Audio Video Receiver Model Number :SC-95 Inquiry:
"Very interested in the new SC-95. However, I couldn't find an option to do 5.2.4 Dolby Atmos in the manual. Is this possible? (I wouldn't have Surround Back Channels due to my room limitations). Also, what about HDMI 2.0a on th SC-95? Thank you. Long-time Pioneer fan."

Unfortunately not, a 7.2.4 is possible with the use of the FRONT or SURROUND BACK PRE-OUTS but not 5.2.4 which even I find strange....
