Should surrounds be ear height in 7.1.4 Atmos setup -

Just setting up my very first Atmos theater setup.

Do the side surrounds still need to be 1-2 feet above head in a 7.1.4 Atmos setup.

Same height as the ears is what the specification state. Personally I have my sides about 1' above ear and the rears a little higher simply to not have the back rest block the sound. So seen from the side I have all base level speakers at an 7 degree angle, a bit like in a cinema.

Tower Cinema - 9.1.6 in a 12'x12' room
Input : Nvidia Shield TV, Panasonic DMP-UB400
Magic : Marantz SR7010, Marantz SR6010, 2x NAD T743
Output : Panasonic TX65EZ952B, SVS PB13 Ultra, Monitor Audio GSLCR 2xGS20 2xGS10 4xGSFX 6xBX1

Same here, sides a little higher, rears a little higher than sides in a 7.1.4 setup

As of Feb 20th still looking for a Marantz SR7010
