A lot up in the air right now in terms of specific receiver configuration options. From most of what we've seen an Atmos mix won't (at least initially) be able to utilize traditional "height"...

The cinema mix has a 9.1 channel bed. TrueHD allows for 7.1 channels (8 total). So by definition two of the...

Thanks for the response. Out of curiosity how do you use a different mic for Audyssey? Did you create a custom calibration profile based on actual Audyssey mics?

Yes, of course, but it's also best practice to stay away from reflective surfaces like walls and leather couch cushions.
