No. The Atmos models require 4 DSPs while the X4000 only has 2. AFAIK, only the 2014 models will be using Atmos.

Correct. This model is only capable of 7.1. The successor X4000 is the first at this level to be expandable to 9.1.

6008 uses same version of Audyssey MultEQ XT as 709 but possibly better music listening quality, however X4000 uses much more advanced XT32 so better audio quality would be expected.
