If you have the SEK-3500U OneConnect box, you do (I don't think the 8550 series will support HDR without it, but I could be wrong).

Keep in mind that the 8550 sets don't have enough nits of...

Keep in mind, you can only do 5.1.4 with the x4200w if you add an external 2-channel amp. Out of the box it only supports 5.1.2.

Still, having that expandability is worth it, even if you don't...

Well, I would think that would hold true of any of the Atmos modules, i.e., if you have a set of Klipsch speakers, the RP-140SA are likely a better timbral match than the PSB.

The PSB XA are interesting. Visually at least, they seem to be the same sort of design as the Klipsch RP-140SA, but with a reversal of the tweeter and midrange positions. The PSB is also a bit...

The Klipsch KP-140SA are right at that budget limit. Can use them either as upward firing Atmos modules or wall-mounted height speakers. I've tried both configurations.

Today's project was to (temporarily) mount the Klipsch 140SA on the walls up at the ceiling, firing downward, in order to see how that configuration performed compared to upward firing.
