Curious, did Shawn recommend the Gold Monitors to mate with the Plat's? That is not a combo I've seen recommended before. The Silver Monitors are usually recommended as the optimal "matching" surrounds to mate with Plat's. I use Silver Monitors with my Plat's, including the Wide's in my system.Thank you. I already have the Gold Monitors so need to see how to work that through. I have the surrounds covered with silver monitors but for wides was planning on using what I already have.
Regarding installing it on vs in ceiling, I had a discussion with Shawn from Quest and we decided to keep the decision on Atmos after the core room design is complete. I will keep the thought you provided in mind for that discussion.
Also, I will be curious to see what Sean recommends for Atmos speakers. Please keep us informed of the decision making as you proceed.
