Compared to legit atmos system this weekend
So I went over to a buddy's house this weekend and he has a full on Atmos system in his living room. Receiver, 2 subs, center, front left and right channels, and 6 in ceiling speakers - rears, rear height, left right height...
Obviously his setup sounded better than my 7.1 Naka system, but it wasn't like we were playing 2 different sports...The Nakamichi 7.1 sounds very, very good in my opinion. I had never heard a full Atmos setup before so I had nothing to compare it to. Worth noting, my friend has been doing audio/video setup for 10 years so his install was good, measured the distances from where he would be sitting when he placed the speakers and all that jazz...
Again, his system obviously sounded better, but I was surprised at how amazing the Nakamichi system sounds in comparison.
