  1. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hi all, I'm looking for advice on a new receiver for some older speakers. Previously I had a 5.1 setup using a Marantz SR5002; now I'm moving the setup to a new room, adding some height speakers, and hooking it up with eARC, so a new receiver is in order. The setup: Fronts: Focal Chorus V...
  2. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I'm upgrading my 5.1 setup to a 5.1.2 in part because I need a new amp with eARC, so I might as well upgrade my number of channels to include Atmos speakers. I thought about installing ceiling speakers, but I decided going with upward firing speakers because of the easier installation and...

    I guess the title says it all. I bought a house with existing LCR Atlantic Technology System 20 LCR speakers in the front wall and dipole/bipole in the ceiling for surrounds. I think I’ll use the existing surrounds as Atmos speakers in the rear, adding some surrounds (MartinLogan Motion FX). I...

    I'm looking to upgrade our living room setup to Dolby Atmos by replacing an old Denon AVR that doesn't support it and potentially changing the speakers. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. The room is pretty wide and long with no room for side speakers or rear speakers lower than the...
  5. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I am in the process of doing research for an upgrade of my primary AVR so that I can complete a broader upgrade of my entire system to 9.2.4 (the room is actually wired for 11.2.6). So far, I am anticipating purchasing the Denon AVR X8500HA so that I can get 13.2 in a single chassis. My...

    Hi all, I'm currently coming from a Klipsch Reference premiere 7.1 WiSA setup but would like to upgrade to atmos (6x RP-140wm, 1x RP-440WC, 1x 110WSW. I really like the WISA setup I have (when it works) but unfortunately I'd have to ditch it all to go atmos as there is no way to just add on two...
  7. Surround Music Formats
    I wonder how practical Dolby Atmos is for music. When people watch TV shows and movies, and play video games, they face a screen, so sound can be designed such that the actors' voices mostly come from the center, front-left, and front-right speakers. The same thing goes for video recordings of...

    I am facing 2 issues with my Strix G15 (5800h with rtx 3070). When I connect my laptop to LG CX directly via HDMI, i cant toggle Dolby atmos. All my drivers are up to date. I've tried using the optional driver but its still not working. When I click on Atmos for home theater but nothing...

    Hey all! I've recently acquired myself an Xbox Series X which I have plugged directly into my Atmos capable Vizio 5.1.2 soundbar. The Xbox supports HDMI 2.1 and is connected to the soundbar via a 2.1 cable, but the soundbar only supports HDMI 2.0. Within the Xbox audio settings there are the...

    I currently have a 5.1 setup and wanted to try something different. About a month ago water came through my ceiling and the drywall had to be removed, so I was thinking I should try in-ceiling speakers while rebuilding. I have read a lot of documents and suggestions from this forum and all...

    Hey guys, I have the Jamo 809CS as a set but I have some money now to invest in another speaker. I was thinking of upgrading my center channel to Klipsch RP-504C as most places I have been researching always suggest putting the max money onto the center channel. Would this be a good idea...

    Hi folks- I've a pretty good 3.1 setup with Salk LCR and PowerSound audio Sub. I'm pairing them with an Anthem MRX 720 in my living room/media room with a projector. I'm thinking of making this a 5.1.2 setup by adding 2 surround speakers and 2 Atmos ceiling speakers. I can mount my surround...

    Hi all, Likely a very noob question. I am going to slowly but surely upgrade my AV experience but was looking to start with audio and be patient for better TV deals down the road. If I have an Apple TV (the newest version) connected to an AVR (looking at Yamaha RX-V6A/TSR-700) which powers the...

    Hi, Im considering taking the step from my 5.1 to a 5.1.2 setup. I need clean looking ceiling mounted speakers and found Gallo Micro. Has anyone experience from using these as Atmos speakers? Would it make a big difference to move up to the bigger Gallo Divas? Thanks in advance! BR Björn

    I bought the new SPD7Y and coming from an old 5.1 system, the experience is just amazing. But as expected it lacks the rear channels and I'm thinking about buying the SPK8 kit. After some research I saw some people complaining about this speakers and to my astonishment I discovered that these...

    I want to add 4 in ceiling speakers for Atmos to my setup. The theater room ceiling is in the basement, only 7.5ft tall with a living room above it. My confusion concerns back boxes or baffles. Do I need them? And if I do… why are they so hard to find? A current search of the web offers very...

    Hello Friends! I want to upgrade my 4 ceiling Atmos speakers to in-ceiling. Currently, I’m using Polk OWM3 and have grown tired of the look of them hanging from the ceiling. My setup is 5.1.4 using Emotiva Zero towers, Emotiva C1 center, and Emotiva E2 surrounds. I’d like to keep with the...

    Hey, I'm planning out upgrades to my existing Gaming/Home Theater setup. The features I want to simultaneously take advantage of are: Dolby Vision/Atmos My room isn't suited for rear surround, so will be using front and/or rear height speakers GSync/FreeSync/VRR on my gaming PC Should I...

    I've been experiencing a problem with my Denon receiver being unable to lock-on to an Atmos signal from my Windows 10 PC. Just to provide some additional context, the PC is being run through the receiver and then to my LG CX through the eARC port, all my cables are HDMI 2.1, Dolby Access is...
