Someone needs to let Creative know that just because it has 15 drivers and 2 sub drivers doesn't mean it is a 15.2 system. At best it is a 7.1 system since mids and tweeters are usually part of one speaker. $5800 is way too much for 5.1.2 Atmos. Plenty of soundbar options that are much cheaper and deliver similar performance. Only thing it has going for it is its height profile but it still requires a stand or shelf under the TV to place it on, unlike a Yamaha YSP, which can be attached to the wall.
