I'd go for the Def Tech but would only recommend in-ceiling speakers for Atmos (vs. up-firing speakers).

Question: I'm thinking of upgrading from the Marantz 7701 to the 7702 to enable Dolby Atmos (the 8802 is too expensive for me). My understanding is that there are only a handful of blu rays currently...

My best would be The Last of Us (didn't play it until February of last year) or Titanfall (170 hours!) - best shooter I've ever played. Biggest disappointment by far was Destiny.
