I didn't watch the whole movie, but I did check out the first 15 minutes or so in Atmos. Holy cow this soundtrack is intense. The overhead channels utilization is almost over-done, but, then again,...

Side-note on The Expendables... holy cow, did they make a PG version or something. I totally forgot about all that controversy of doing it PG-13 and I honestly didn't think I'd care but it totally...

So checked out The Expendables 3. It has that same bone-crunchingly clear and powerful sound that Transformers has.... except dialed to 11. Overheads are way aggressive, a bit overdone IMO, as is...

YPAO does absolutely zilch for bass. The lowest it makes any adjustments in my system is 62.5hz, and that's only for one of my two subs. For some strange reason, it does quite a few adjustments for...

Well, I'm also referring to a 2:1 ratio being equal to 6:3, not 9:3 ;)

Unfortunately I only have the 2040, so can't help you there.

I just ran through some of Transformers, it's pretty close in some ways. They're both really enveloping but Atmos takes the cake when there's very discrete object tracking going on. In addition,...

With my other surround go-to test disc, Master and Commander, it was a much closer contest but I again chose the Yamaha DSP.

Don't you mean 3' and 6'? I sure hope so because I imagine most people have their surrounds 5-7' off the ground. I can't imagine many situations where many people have 15-21' ceilings. Besides, I...

I feel the same way. Thinking about lowering my surrounds, at least the side surrounds. Not sure if I can pull off lowering the rear surrounds.

Yes and no. The sound quality is excellent but I dearly miss Audyssey. Fortunately my new sub seems to require a lot less eq than my prior one.

Atlantic Technology 351s and 2200s. Ceiling mounted. Not sure what the acronyms for the 3rd part are... top-middle? Mine are directly overhead.

Oh, I also switched the amp to a Behringer 3000DSP, which has WAAAAY more headroom. However, not having much success using the Eq at all, but I'm gonna keep tweaking

Yup. Still debating if I should build 2 massive ported boxes for the SIs though. And then maybe toss the Daytons in a huge box at the back of the room.

Good lord these things are monsters! I don't even think I've maxed them out but I got about 110dBs at 14hz at my listening position, and my room is massive and opens into the rest of the house.

I don't see why you'd want to try to push a single amp/receiver to do 11 channels anyways. I've been using my old Onkyo 806 as an external amp for some time now. When I upgraded to my old Denon...
