Questions about Dolby Atmos
I currently own a Yamaha RX-A770 receiver with a 65-inch LG OLED 4K TV and 6 definitive technology speakers. I’ve been planning on purchasing two Atmos speakers for my Atmos-capable receiver, but hanging speakers from my living room ceiling is out of the question. I was looking at the Klipsch RP-140SA upfiring speakers, which are currently $318 for the pair. Will those provide good Atmos sound for a moderately small room with a 10-foot high ceiling?
But here’s my real struggle. I understand that currently the only way to listen to the Atmos speakers is with Atmos-compatible disks and I’m not sure if that’s worth the money to me considering I don’t spend lots of time watching 4K movies. So I was hoping that eventually this investment would pay off in the future with other ways to hear Atmos Sound, perhaps through internet streaming, music or satellite TV. Do you see this as a possibility in the not-too-distant future? A store rep at my local Best Buy said some high-end 4K receivers are capable of upconverting non-Atmos sound into Atmos? I consider my receiver mid-level, but does anyone know if it’s capable of this up-conversion? Thanks in advance for your responses.
