Anyone Gaming in a Room With ATMOS?
Cliff's Notes - Is anyone gaming in a room (either dedicated home theater or otherwise) with ATMOS? What do you think?
The longer story,
My dedicated home theater has been in use for watching movies for quite a while (not finished, but I hung the projector so all progress pretty well stopped), but I only picked up PS4 and a good title last weekend. It's the first time I've been really impressed with the surround sound in my room. 7+ years ago, before my first son was born, I spent a lot of nights playing FPSs. I had a surround sound setup in my living room, but nothing special. It definitely added to the experience, but there were a TON of compromises that limited what it could offer.
Well, the day after I had this great gaming experience in my HT, my AVR gets hit by lighting. So now I'm upgrading to an ATMOS receiver, and I'm pretty excited about what it will add to the experience. I've never heard ATMOS in action, so I really don't know what to expect.
Does anyone have any experience with ATMOS and gaming? Do I need to take a deep breath and lower my expectations, or is it going to be as EPIC as I'm hoping? It's going to be a week or two before I get everything together, but I'm interested in what others think in the meantime.
