I'm reviewing the Marantz 8802 next month and will be upgrading to Atmos in order to do that review justice. I'll be busy over Christmas running wires to my speaker locations etc. Should be fun :)

There's a pretty big improvement in the S300's midrange over the S150s. There soundstage is deeper and more layered, if I recall.
