Atmos will be compatible with 4K Blurays. Period. If your AVR can't handle 4K Blurays, then nothing will be compatible with 4K Blurays.

I agree that if 4K is important to you then it is a consideration when buying any new AVR, Atmos or not. The question asked was "will Atmos work with 4K Blurays?" and the answer is, "of course it...

LOL. By the time I swap it, Gen 2 Atmos will be here and nobody will want it ;)

I do have a mint condition Onkyo 5509 for sale though if you know anyone who wants one :)

No it isn't. Pro never measures the combined output of the mains and subs either, so it too gets the delays wrong for the subs. I only know of one person (Pepar) who has not had to adjust the delays...

He wasn't asking if the AVRs would support HDCP 2.1 - he asked if 4k Blurays would. And obviously, they will, as Atmos is delivered by TrueHD.



Indeed.

I assume you believe that 4K Blurays will support Dolby TrueHD (and DTS-HD MA for that matter?). If that's so, then they will also support Atmos.

Each speaker needs an amp. So if you do 7.1.4, it follows that you will need 11 amps somewhere in the system. Will you have 11 amps?
