OK, I've narrowed it down to either the MP-60 or the MX170, but that's now what I would like to ask. Has anyone watched the new Lion King on UHD yet? I just got done watching some key scenes (what I thought were cool in the original movie) and even on my MX122 that I currently have the soundtrack is awesome! However, I kept watching the meters on my "Atmos" amp, which is an MC8207 and noticed very little registering in the front channel meters. I'm wondering a couple of things - 1. Am I nitpicking? 2. Is it because I'm running front height instead of top front? or 3. It's just the way Disney made the movie. I read the manual for the 170 and it did note that it will try to match the output to the speakers used. I'm wondering if my MX122 just isn't capable of remapping the Atmos channels properly and swapping it out with the 170 will fix things. I did notice however the top middle speakers really got a workout, especially on the final battle scene. I would just like to hear your thoughts on this.
Just an FYI - I'm setup for a 7.4.7 system with 2 front and 2 rear subs split off of sub1 and sub2. Top channels are Front Height, Top Middle, VOG, Rear Height. Unfortunately I can't do top front and top rear due to ductwork in the ceiling that would have to be moved. I'm hoping either the MP60 or the MX170 (which I hope to purchase something tomorrow or this weekend) will fix my fears. Again, your thoughts are appreciated.
