    My receiver is showing what your active speakers show except it adds SBL/SBR. No, it doesn't say Atmos.

    Which movie really shows off the ceiling speakers?

    They are and thanks a million! I've been looking for some good Atmos demo content. I'm currently only getting stereo from these demos but I suspect that has more to do with my HTPC than anything else. I'll play around with it some more soon. Off to see Black Panther now.

    I tried like hell to down load some demos from the Dolby site, but to no avail.

    I just by chance heard about DTSs own ceiling sound called DTS:X. I went to their site and found out that I have 4 of the movies: HUNTSMAN:WINTERS WAR; GODS OF EGYPT; EX MACHINA and CRIMSON PEAK.

    I'm glad my Denon can accept both Atmos and DTS:X.

    You can get demo’s from the sites I linked earlier.
