ChristopherG said:Let me start with an apology - I have been completely ignoring the Atmos sphere of influence (SWIDT?). I'm being forced to reckon with it as a few Redbox rentals recently relegated my Dolby 5.1 setup to defaulting to NEO DTS, etc. Is this something that can be remedied with a setting on my receiver? The disc I watched last night was the Mission Impossible Rogue Nation and in the disc setup it had many foreign language 5.1 options but only Dolby Atmos for english.
Thanks for indulging someone who should know better.
DaveF said:Hopefully a quick question:
I'm still thinking about a 5.1.4 Atmos setup for the basement. (I don't think a 7.1.x is practical for my room.) I've got an 8' 6" ceiling and plan to hang four SVS Prime Satellites. Is this an ok idea for Atmos use? Or is hanging conventional bookshelf speakers recommended against, and I should consider in-ceiling speakers (I've got a finished ceiling and and this would be much harder to accomplish).
Thanks for any insights.
Probably not much. A lot of ceiling speakers have the ability to aim the tweeter, you could always use that to compensate if you felt you needed to.DavidMiller said:I'm getting ready to install ceiling speakers I just have one thing I have been trying to figure out. My ceiling has a slight angle angle maybe 5 degrees. Not sure how it would effect the sound. Any thoughts?
It would be awesome it Netflix Atmos was actually available to Netflix subscribers.Bumping this for a couple of points.
- War for the Planet of the Apes is still the reigning Atmos home track
- Blade Runner 2049 give war a run for the money with deep and sustained bass, but War beats it on Atmospherics
- Do NOT discount Cabin in the Woods because it is 'just' a horror movie. If you haven't seen it you are in for MAJOR surprises. This movie isn't what you think it is and the Atmos track is AMAZING.
- Cloverfield Paradox launched on Netflix last night with a supert Atmos track. Check it out!!!!
