I've had a bare bones budget system for years now, so having a receiver that provides a huge upgrade would be amazing. I would need to learn a lot about the features of the Atmos, but with the help of this forum, I know I would be able to create something ideal that would be an incredible experience due to how much of an upgrade it would be for me.
I've been working on my garage/DIY sensory room/man cave/home theatre since the start of the year however my 18 month old daughter and 6 month son have been keeping me busy. This space is evolving to house my ideal setup. I'm slowly building up the speaker savings pot to buy some tidy Monitor Audio speakers.. it'll be a while! A nice 42" TV and projector combo for alternate uses should be amazing. An idea is to hook up the sensory leds I've strung up for my son to Hyperion (a DIY Ambilight clone) so that he can enjoy whole room colour shows synced up to his favorite of the moment tv/films.
my ideal atmos system would be one that i would share with my friends and family! it would start with this awesome receiver and build up from there! Cant wait to hear the full sound from everywhere! Thanks for the opportunity! Hope i win!
I have been excited ever since Atmos was first announced, because the room I use for my HT already has ceiling speakers, the house came with them. The speakers themselves, unfortunately, are hideous, but the point is, the wiring is already there making it easy when I upgrade them. I have been a fan of surround sound ever since I built my first Hafler circuit back in about 1985. I used a bonus I received at work to buy my first Dolby Pro-Logic receiver in 1987 (a rock solid Pioneer model). I also have a Denon reel-to-reel tape machine that made me a fan of the brand, so having this new equipment from Denon would be like welcoming an old friend.
I am setting up a new HT (downsizing) in a new home. So a new Atmos receiver would be a great way to start the process. I have access to the the ceiling through the attic so adding the ceiling speakers would be a relatively easy process. Then sit down with Insurgent and let er rip.
Not sure about the specs and models of what I would want but if money was no object I would just opt for the most expensive rig and I would certainly go for a professional install for once in my life instead of my amateur jerri-rigging!
Having experienced Atmos at AMC, Best Buy Magnolia, CES 2015 Vegas, Deluxe Audio....the ideal setup would be at home. Period. My wife is convinced Atmos puts the awe in awesome but I can not put the $$$ in the receiver and speakers without this contest (and her consent..which will be a lot easier to get if i win this receiver)
Having the comforts of your own home, pausing a movie take a bathroom break, dinner and a movie nights, ultra sharp images projected on the big screen, and being able to view a movie as many times as you want make home the ideal place for Atmos.
This receiver will give me a legitimate excuse to purchase four more speakers and get rid of some more dry ceiling in the basement. Denon please help me win this battle...
PS: An RV outfitted with Dolby Atmos would be nice too. Demo that at a future trade show Dolby/Denon?
Being a big fan of Denon Receivers, they've been the foundation of our A/V setup for over 20 years. we currently own the Denon AVR-1913 and AVR-1712. Should we be the lucky winner of the Denon X5200, it would replace the former and be paired with a 4K Vizio television, Polk audio towers, center channel and bookshelf speakers as well as some new surround sound speakers. We'd also be the proud to show off to our friends and neighbors when hosting get-togethers. Thank you.
My Atmos home theater would be built around the following: Replace existing Denon AVR. Replace current speakers with a new Definitive Technology set of Atmos speakers in a 5.1.4 arrangement with the front and rear Atmos speakers mounted on top of the DF fronts and surrounds relying on ceiling reflections for effect. I'd keep my 110" screen, upgrade my projector to be 4k compatible, and then sit back and watch Insurgent at performance reference levels.
My ideal Dolby Atmos home theater would be this Denon X5200w receiver to replace my aging Yamaha RX-V1800 with a full 5.1.4 Atmos setup. I'd love to replace my Polk bookshelf mains/surrounds with Polk TSi 400s for the mains, a Polk TSx 250c for the center and Polk TSi200s for the rear channels. For the ceiling, I'd love to put some Polk 900 LS in the x.x.4 spots to fill in the overhead sound cocoon. I've got a number of Atmos Blu-rays waiting and ready, but can't wait for powerhouses like Mad Max and San Andreas! I finally have the room for this type of theater - now I just need the equipment!
