atmos 11.?.8 set up
I have to make a decision on my atmos setup , wll be installing the speakers this week . Now that Dolby has announced 11.8 I have to deicide if I want to reconfigure my intended speaker setup and locations. Currently have a Denon X8500H but now I'm considering a processor capable of 20 or more channels . I was originally going with 6 atmos in-ceiling with 9 beds . The overheads for Atmos with 8 speakers is different and appears more agnostic if I decide to run Auro3D or DTS etc.
I have two dedicated rows of seats and a third row bar seating for overflow, to have appropriate sound imaging for all seats is my goal if possible . I'm now wondering what is the best position for these additional speakers/channels for side surrounds and heights to give the best panning for all seats with emphasis on the MLP ( main listening position).
Suggestions welcome, thankyou in advance .
