They are indeed directly overhead the seating area. And I am still still using dialogue lift. I experimented with 0,+1, and +2. 0 collapsed the soundstage. +2 was pulling too much of the dialogue...

Glad I'm not the only one. I'm always perplexed by reviewers who attempt to grant superlative praise on home theater speakers by saying "they sounded like the best commercial cinema". Really? They...

P.S. spot-checked Godzilla and it was also amazing. And just did the T-rex scene in JP. T-rex scene was surprising... even if the DSP is supposed to emulating sounds up front, you'd think rain of...

It might behoove you to re-read pages 19,20, and 127 of the manual. The 2040 and 3040 both support setting the front and/or rear presence speakers to be "overhead", or ceiling-mounted (it might be...

That is the point. If I put them directly overhead, where the baffle of the speakers extends past the ceiling, it'd be easier to localize the speaker, which is not what I'm going for.

These are overhead speakers (set-up as front-presence-overhead), not rear.

So, apparently you can't set-up rear presence speakers unless you also set-up front presence speakers. Hopefully then this means that my 2040 is treating my "front" overhead presence speakers as...

Having just upgraded to the rxa2040 from the Denon x4000, I can tell you that the dialogue intelligibility on the Yamaha is far superior. Audysses is indeed superior, but YPAO is fine so far. The...

Yes, I know that part. He said "set", so I thought maybe there was an option to set them in the 2040. However, after going through the manual and the advanced set-up (they really used that term...

I just noticed in the setup that we can set our presence speakers to "overhead" instead of front or rear. Anybody try this yet? I was going to wait to install my speakers as overheads until it got...

Though, I gotta say, channel-based or not, I think I would prefer the current Auros speaker/channel approach. I didn't think I would be a fan of the 4 ceiling channel set-up that Amos is harping on,...

I disagree there. Would I rather take a format that allows me to set up 5-36 channels or take one that only allows me a fixed number of channels? Oh, I'll take the object-based one, thank you.

I would hope so. However, this is the first iteration of Atmos for the home. I imagine there will a myriad of limitations that don't even bring it close to what it's full potential can be.

The new onkyos, the ones that support Atmos, have their own calibration software. They no longer have Audyssey.

Am I reading correctly that they implied that Onkyo does not have Audyssey because they don't have adequate processing power?
