Recommend B&W In-Ceiling for Atmos?
Looking for advice on completing my full B&W setup. I'm planning to purchase some in-ceiling speakers, and I'd like to find something that compliments what I have, but will also work quite well for Atmos (for example, having tweeters that can be directed toward the main listening position).
My current speaker setup is in my signature, but I'll list his here for convenience:
- Front: B&W DM 603 S3 (x2)
- Center: B&W LCR600 S3
- Side Surround: B&W DS3 (x2)
- Rear Surround: B&W 686 S2 (x2)
- Sub: Hsu VTF-3 MK5
When I started looking for in-ceiling speakers, I realized there are a LOT of variations, and I'm having a hard time even teasing out the differences, much less which ones would pair well with my existing system. These are the ones I'm looking at, in no particular order:
- CCM664SR <= Does dual channel even matter in surround heights?
Admittedly, I really don't want to spend $700 for one pair. Again, I have no idea what the difference between these is. Anyone with experience with any of these?
Also, I was found this thread
which was asking for comparison between CCM663 and CCM664, and I saw someone recommended RSL C34E
. I also share the concern of timbre matching, but perhaps that isn't as big of a deal for Atmos speakers?
