How do you see yourself using a dedicated room? Really interested. I only know one person that had one and it was on his 3rd floor. He said that he hasn't been up there for a few years as after a glass of wine he cant be ar$$ed going up the stairs to listen.
Totally understand where you are coming from and I have been there. The new owners weren't happy with holes in ceiling.
I hope the new owners of the house I am selling atm don't mind (find) the big hole in the wall to my office for the thick wad of cables.
I am planning on fairly high ceilings (up to 4m at the highest point). I currently have full size Monitor Audio Gold series speakers Front/Centre/Rear and reading their website they are recommending their C265-IDC in ceiling speakers.
I think it would make sense to stay with something from...
Thanks @JohnRice. So you think in ceiling is better than mounted speakers for the high level speakers or just looks tidier.

I am currently designing a new house to live in and I cant afford a separate listening room, so it will be...
OK, I have my 5 channel DD. Dolby Atmos and DTS:X has been out for a while. I have some left over amplifiers so I have 5 x 2 channel amps that I can use, but all the configurations I have read about have an uneven number of speakers (discounting the SW). How would you use 10 channels? 5.1.4...
