    Well folks, with the new Denon going into action, would like some info & advice on utilizing the 9.2 speaker capability (up from 7.2 and no Atmos). Obviously I'll be utilizing Dolby Atmos on the front end (two height speakers (Leviton/JBL AEH50s )up near the ceiling on the front but I've already ordered two Okyno SB410 Atmos speakers, starting out small I know.

    I can mount two mor3e AEH50s from the ceiling on the back by the fireplace to finish the 9.2 setup. Still got wiring to do but I'd be using AWG14 gauge speaker wire on 50-60 foot cable runs like my surround sounders.

    Eventually I might upgrade all surround speakers (and subwoof) with a nifty Klipsch set I've been seeing and moving the JBLs to the bedroom TV where my older Denon X2000 will reside. Not worried about Atmos there.

    9 traditional speakers is a waste for Atmos. You are way better doing a 7.1.2 setup.
