To be clear, BP, the older software versions of the Altitude only offered the 45 degrees angle for the mains for Atmos. As noted in the Altitude thread in the past, you can select either way as of the major update in March...and the 30 degrees mains certainly have a more cohesive soundstage in my opinion, and at least one other guy I know I've spoken to with an Altitude. I could be wrong but I think that the +- 30 degrees angle is generally what is recommended now as best practice for most rooms.
I've tried wides in my Trinnov setup at roughly 45ish degrees, and also tried using those as alternative mains with Atmos and DTS:X, and either way you get a fat side stage and less of a realistic soundstage up front. That's in my 19x14x9 (LxWxH) room. Closer to 60 degrees just sounds better across the board.
