    Atmos Configuration - 9.2.2 or 7.2.4

    Since a 13 channel receiver is out of my price can someone tell me if 2 channels on an 11 channel amp would be better in the ceiling or as wide front left and right (7.2.4 or 9.2.2)? Is a 13 channel worth $2000ish more than an 11 channel receiver?

    Question About 7.1 and Dolby Atmos

    I have the Pioneer VSX 1131 which can process Dolby Atmos. My set up is 5.1. I'm wondering if I lose some sounds when I choose 7.1 or Dolby Atmos from a disc. The other night from The Bridge on the River Kwai 4K disc I compared the sound choosing 5.1 and then 7.1 and latter sounded better to me.
