I thought I read somewhere in the manual that the "back" channels could be reassigned to act as Atmos, thus
I would only need two more channels of amplification: but I cannot find that again, if I ever did.
I assume I do not need the run the "back" speakers if I have 5.1 and height speakers front and back.
Thanks for any help offered!
Page 17 of the manual:
BACK AMP (MRX Only) and HEIGHT 2 AMP (MRX 1120 Only)
By default, MRX 1120 has amplification for 7.1.4 main speakers, and the MRX 720 for 7.1 main speakers. Amplification for the back and height channels can be reassigned for use with the following configurations:
5.1.4 main speakers and two Zone 2 speakers 7.1.2 main speakers and two Zone 2 speakers
5.1.2 main speakers
5.1 main speakers and two Zone 2 speakers
Looks like for MRX 720 can reassign back for two of the heights but need an external amp for the second set of Atmos heights
