Atmos upgrade question
I am thinking about an upgrade to Dolby Atmos configuration from a 7.1 surround system, but not sure about its value in my particular situation.
I have an architectural speaker system in the front (Martin Logan Edge) and as rear surround speakers (Yamaha) plus a subwoofer (Martin Logan Dynamo 1100x) but the left and right surround speakers (Yamaha 8 inch) are actually installed in the ceiling at about the level of our head. This is due to the fact that one side of the room is a giant glass door and my wife did not want any floor standing speakers for aesthetic reasons. I have to say that Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD master sound very nice. I use a Pioneer Elite VSX-32 AV receiver and I want to upgrade to something that will drive my front speakers better so Atmos configurations came to my mind.
So here is the question for the respected members of this forum:
How much benefit will I enjoy if I install height speakers into 7.1.2 or 7.1.4 configuration in front of and/or behind my left and right surround speakers, which are already on the ceiling?
Does anyone have any experience or recommendation?
I am open to suggestions.
