I'd guess studios will announce upcoming titles in their usual timeframe (although IDK what this is). Most of the Atmos movies released on BD had already been released or scheduled or announced...

Interesting how that compares with my own experience, 7Hz - 150Hz.

Good plan. If you can't, then tell your wife you will be able to sell the sub for a good price later ;) Point out how much you would lose financially if you sold the SVS. And how it makes more sense...

If you are primarily interested in music, then 30Hz will be OK for most content. But if you want movies to play the way their creators intended you need solid bass down to 20Hz. If the sub you are...

30Hz for movies is, IMO, woefully inadequate. Figure a way to keep the SVS.

The significant difference is at the lower end of the frequency range. Just set the XO a little higher for the Di5s. Assuming you have good sub(s).

Great points. I can't see speaker remapping coming to affordable AVRs either. But it would be nice to have some way to input (or calculate) angles for the overhead speakers, which is a different...

Yes, but Pasender is right - it will be even better if the AVR can render to the precise locations of the intended sound objects, and it can only do that if it knows where the speakers are.

I lowered mine as much as possible (just above head height when seated). It is important to maximise the separation between surrounds and overheads.

Is XT32 doing what exactly?

Your conclusion makes sense to me. 4 ohm speakers will almost always represent a challenge for AVRs, if you like to listen to the system at high SPLs. Once you have the external amps, they will...
