Question 7.1.4 vs. 7.1?

Hello,
I have been toying with the idea of going from 7.1 to 7.1.4 later on (7.2.4/11.2). I wanted to hear from those of you running a 4 speaker height setup if it's a really big difference between 7.1 to 11.1 surround, which is basically adding 4 height channels to a 7.1 set up. Thanks so much, and I would really appreciate any information you can provide me with on how you feel about your setup now.

Sincerely,

TCL/Roku 65" R615 4K TV, SVS Ultra 5.0 Tower Surround System, Onkyo TX-SR805 for LCR, Onkyo HTR 940 for Surrounds, Dual SVS PB-2000 Subwoofers, Sony UBP X700 4K Ultra Blu-ray Player, two-20 amp power lines w/2 Furman PL-PRO DMC 20 Amp Power Conditioners with Voltmeter/ Ammeter

Sincerely,
This has been discussed in the Atmos sticky thread for 3 years now. Suggest you review the posts there for plenty of answers to include a spreadsheet in post 1 listing about 120 forum members and their setups (which are mostly 4 height speakers).

Definitely worth it! It's a bigger jump than going from 5.1 to 7.1. With more and better Atmos and DTS:X soundtracks coming out, it brings a whole new level of immersion.
