I concur with Sanjay. You'll get virtually no appreciable benefit to installing Atmos if both your surround speakers and your height speakers are above you. With no meaningful separation between...

Well, if you're using an old AVR, you need to make sure that you have one with 5.1 analog inputs rather than just stereo. Not all do. Otherwise, there's nothing prohibiting this.

If you're using a...

You're likely to get different opinions from different people on this. Both of the AVRs you're looking at (Denon 6200 and Marantz 7010) are pretty capable models. In a small room, I think they'll be...

The marketing hype about DTS:X's speaker placement flexibility turned out to be just a lot of noise. The actual released product works the same way Atmos does.

If you're going to use the amp to power height channels, your thinking is correct. However, the Audiosource AMP100VS will work equally as well and is about $100 less expensive.

I second Scott's recommendation to use the external amp to power your front left and right mains. They'll make better use of it, which will free up two of your...

I immediately found that strange as well when I received the press release yesterday. It reads like an act of desperation to remind us that DTS:X still exists.

You should do what you feel comfortable with, but $700 for a 100W 2-channel amp is... I would say "overkill" at the very least. You are extremely unlikely to need anywhere near 100W to power height...

The Yamaha RX-A3060 can decode 11 channels of audio but can only amplify 9 of them itself. An external 2-channel amplifier should not be a great expense or difficulty to add. The Audiosource AMP100...

I took a look last night and the front of the projector around the lens seems pretty sealed up. Nowhere to shoot air inside. (Yes, I removed the glass panel in front of the lens.)
