Adding Atmos Capability - Just Need Ceiling Speakers - Worth The Substantial Cost?
As the title says, I have really wanted to add Atmos capability to my home theater, and now have the necessary amplification and processor for a 7-1-4 system. I just need to add the four ceiling/overhead speakers. My system consists of all upper level Revel speakers purchased a year ago. After discussing the matter with a local home theater professional, a Revel engineer, and reading some comments in this forum and elsewhere, the "appropriate" Revel overhead speakers to utilize are going to cost me $750.00 each/$3k for the two pairs. That's a pretty fair chunk of change. Will the system sonic upgrade I will get from moving to Atmos justify that kind of additional investment? And are the overhead effects that will then be possible enough for this kind of expenditure to make sense?
I would greatly appreciate your expertise on this issue. Thanks.
