    Hi everyone, I'm quite new here... :) I've decided to install ATMOS/ Heights in my HT and wanted to take the chance to reconfigure my HT.

    But I'm kind of stuck cos I'm not too experienced in overhead and height configs. :-\ The aim is optimise the immersive sound.

    My limitations are:
    - my couch is against the wall, and that cannot change due to spouse factor
    - spouse don't prefer speaker stands for surrounds, so surrounds are to be mounted to the wall.

    My current config is 5.2.

    Now, my new project. I have 6x Anthony Gallo micros to play with - 2x will be used to replace my current surrounds; the other 4x used for overhead/height speakers.

    Can help to see if option 1 or 2 below is better? Feel free to propose if u feel there are better alternatives or its better not to install certain speakers :) I've also heard some recommendations not to have overheads and go with just heights.

    Current Layout:

    Option 1 (5.2.4)

    Option 2 (7.2.2)

    Thanks in advance!
