Don't believe any mythology that the prepro versions will magically sound better than the receiver versions. They are all based on the same components, DSP etc. If you have a 7ch amp then getting the...

I selected rear speakers from the list because the speakers are in the back of the seating position. Will add the front two Atmos ceiling speakers in a few days when the additional amp ...

In a perfect world you would use a video calibration test disc with specific test patterns. You can compare with real world content but that's not a "controlled" test. The Spears & Munsil bluray has...

Now that is a dedicated single person theater! Holy smokes. With Klipsch speakers in a room that small you probably are using less than 1 watt per ch.

It was that way forever but they changed it the year after your 4520 with the first E/X series models. I agree it's silly. I can only assume people complained that the pink noise tones surprised them...

Nothing is lost. Played back on a non Atmos processor it will just be a standard 7.1 TrueHD track. The non-Atmos decoder will not recognize the metadata controlling the objects.

I'm confident this was discussed in the Atmos thread :) Although to be fair to you, it's a loooong thread and I'm sure you could have missed it.

But, yes, a 7.1.4 config will work for Atmos with...

The Marantz 7702 (like the 7009 receiver version) is based on the X4100 and, like that model, is made in China. So it's basically the pre/pro version of the X4100/SR7009.
