    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    @JohnRice I consulted with some experts and they are with you. No VOG. Hardly ever used.

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    The one thing I have learnt is that the current state is not static. tomorrow brings change. I think of it as a centre speaker on the z-axis. Its bound to catch on.

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    Do you both use the room or it more just yourself? My wife quite likes it all (so long as it is hidden away and not messy)

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    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.

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    anyway... after lots of reading, I am looking at doing a 5.1.4 + VOG (for future proofing)

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    A new house isnt yours until you have done some work on it I rekon. A few holes in the ceiling might be a good thing :) ... But I'm not going to move from this one.. really.

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    Ahh.. surface mounted speakers. Sound like a nice option. I dont intend to ever sell though as this should be my last house, so I feel like I can sort of go for gold.

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    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.

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    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...

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    Thanks John, but my question was specifically about the Atmos overhead speakers. ceiling vs mounted.

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    Thanks @JohnRice. So you think in ceiling is better than mounted speakers for the high level speakers or just looks tidier. My other amps are old Linn LK100's so dont use much power in comparison. The other option is to get an AVR and do hybrid external amps and AVR amps.

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    Yep. its the 5 that makes it an odd number. I was hoping not to waste one of my channels, as stereo amps come in pairs :) I was toying with the idea of 6.1.4 with a single rear channel. I am currently designing a new house to live in and I cant afford a separate listening room, so it will be...

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    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...
