Wait for the Denon 4300 to be released later this year, and see how the price compares to the 6200. At the very least, the price should be lower once the new models arrive.

If you've got money...

The currently blu-ray spec remains unchanged, so "standard" blu-ray discs will be subject to region-coding - I doubt that'll change.

UHD blu-ray doesn't employ region-coding. That's the short...

I agree with BP - height speakers along the white trim would be the most unobtrusive way to add Atmos in that room. If you can get white speakers that you can flush-mount, that would be ideal. Maybe...

You might be able to get 4 Atmos speakers to work in that space using front + rear heights. That's what I plan to do in my living room - my sofa is also right against the rear wall.

And here I thought my plans to upgrade to "only" 5.2.4 in my rather small living room would be a challenge - now I realize it's only small potatoes ;)
