    Win a Denon X5200W 9.2 channel Dolby Atmos AVR with a copy of Insurgent on Blu-ray!

    Insurgent would sound excellent on that very cool Denon X5200W along with a complete set of Pioneer Elite Dolby Atmos enabled speakers. Of course, for video, a groovy Epson projector and a yet-to-be-released 4K Blu-ray player would more than suffice!
