8track - the 7200 wouldn't give you any different options. Like the 4311 it has 9 amps built in so the arithmetic of 11 amplifiers is identical.

Second, just to be clear, splitting a channel to...

Correct, however, you are only focusing on the bi-amp aspect which I was not. The 4520CI and X7200W are able to "reassign" the FL/FR speaker posts to another channel which the X5200W is not able to...

Yes Front Height is one of the allowed 5 overhead positions with Atmos, and in fact is the only position that can be "shared" among other upmixers like Auro and Neo:X. Because of that many people...
