Aside from my speaker comment, are you DIYing the quiet rock? Might want to read up on it. I wasn't willing to deal with the metal inside and the carbide blade needed to cut quiet rock. (IIRC) ...

9.2.4 viable yet with a single AVR?

Last I checked on this a few months ago, 7.2.4 or 7.1.4 was about the best a single AVR would do for Atmos in the home. IS this still the case. I'm about ready to plunk down the coin for in-wall...

Blockbusters and popcorn flicks are worth it to me to see in a theater. Drama's I'll see at home where any setup is mostly equivalent to what you will get in the theater.
