Out of curiosity, what size is your HT area? My room is roughly 13'w by 15.5'l by 9.5'h. I am playing with the idea of 7.1.4, but I'm thinking that may be overkill. I'd save $600 (plus two speakers)...

I guess the million dollar question is will we care about Neo:X after hearing Dolby Surround? I'll be going straight from Dolby 5.1/DTS to Atmos/Dolby Surround, lol!

That's actually not a bad strategy, IMO. I think the assumption by D&M is anyone buying in this price range is replacing gear that has 5 pre-ins. If you need external amplification anyways, why not...

Good point, I hadn't thought of that, thanks! I wonder how many dimwits fried their speakers (or themselves) before that law was enacted? I'm glad we have the blade style in North America (although...

On a more mundane note regarding the 5200W, did anyone notice the speaker posts look different in the UK manual than some of the early pictures floating around? They also don't mention using banana...

So are you doing 5.1.4? I am considering this setup too, but 7.1.4 (5200W) is sure tempting me! I don't upgrade that often (current receiver is a ten year old NAD T-761), so I'm tempted to splurge....

Agreed, I'm looking to do 7.1.4 in a 13' W by 15' L by 9.5' H room. I was planning on building some heights into a screen bulkhead anyways, so I just need to add two ceiling speakers in the back,...

Thanks Batpig. Not a deal breaker for me, everything else in my setup is black. The whole Atmos timing thing is great for me, I'm running a 10 year old NAD T-761, with Monoprice HDMI switching. Oh...

You could install standard plastic electrical conduit. It comes in many sizes, 1.5 inch would probably be plenty. It's the gray stuff you'll see in the electrical section at Home Depot, Lowe's, etc....

Two words: Conduit everywhere. It'll never be easier to do than now, and shouldn't add too much to the house price.

I also noticed they are using two Denon amps. Maybe consider something like this...

I can actually see it happening. It's all about Dolby's licensing fees. Consumer Atmos will have fewer channel outputs (speakers) with a corresponding price point. Given the Denon AVR X-4100W for...

So riddle me this: If the Kaliedascope system has carousels to get around the law, why not stream the Bluray directly from the disc itself? Would be a lot less expensive, I think.
