Okay guys, sorry about the mess but I just detached everything from the walls etc because I painted my room and moved everything so I had to do this video now in order for you to see and suggest me what to do.
I have a 5.2 and I'm still very happy with it. The position of the surrounds are directly on the wall next to the library you see behind the couch. I know it's not the ideal position and they might appear as surround back but it's the actual only surround. I've been told long ago that as long as they are above ear level and pointed to the viewer I would be fine. And I was till now yes. As you might have thought yes the tv and the towers are against that very low wall (not now because I moved them in order to paint and all). Couch in the middle.
Now...as I said already, I've always enjoyed by setup, I don't know if it's the ultra sloped very low ceiling (1.20m or something in the lowest point as you can see me touching it LoL) but I've always felt very wrapped watching a movie, even if I don't have a 7.1!
But now, before I rewire everything (I just bought new cables too and a new AVR is on the way, Pioneer SC-LX701) do you see any possibility for my ultra annoying room to get Atmos somehow? Upfiring speakers on the front I know already are a no no, because of the sloped ceiling and because of the wood, too. In ceiling is definitely a no no as well since it's very very low and I can't attach them anyways with my wood and all.
Should I give up? Should I at least upgrade to 7.1 or something by putting 2 new speakers in those very distant walls compared to the position of the couch? It feels stupid...
Atmos forever a dream for me? This is bugging me a lot as of late, despite being happy with my setup I read everybody super mega happy for the having done the jump from 5.1/7.1 to Atmos just by adding 2 more speakers =(
