I joined just so that I could send in my thoughts. I currently have a nice 5.1 system in my multi purpose room. The room is 26' x 16' but I have my set up on the long wall which makes my space around 16' deep x 13' wide. I think Atmos would work great in my room with 4 ceiling speakers. I can only do 5.2.4 but not sure if it would be worth the funds to upgrade since I listen to two channel music 50%+ and the other times I am streaming shows like Ozark, Breaking Bad, etc.\n\nThe only reason I would be interested in upgrading is that my current avr is the Anthem MRX 510 which I can not get it to pass 4k so therefore I am watching everything in 1080p on my Samsung QLED 85" TV. I am still not sure if I want to upgrade to Atmos or just keep everything the same and purchase a really nice two channel system which I would probably get more use out of.\n\nSo in my opinion I think Atmos was designed to sell more speakers, avr's, movies, etc. Heck, my wife thinks the TV speakers are just fine and I bet she is in the majority that think that as well.\n\nThoughts?\n\n\n\nFor you...if you're going to do 4k, most of the AVRs will probably have the Dolby Atmos feature as well. Two birds with one stone. The real key for Atmos speakers is if you have the capability to install in ceiling speakers, without ripping out your ceiling. \n\nIf you do...and you don't mind investing into to some blu ray discs or renting them, Dolby Atmos is worth it. My movie watching has grown since I finished the system, but music is why I built it, and music still probably 70% of my usage is music.
