Hey all,\n\nI was listening to the new video on youtube last night that came out and I'm starting to think I should rethink what I'm doing with my system. \n\nCurrent system:\nReceiver: Marantz SR 6013\nAmp for mains: Rega Elcit R (system used to be 2 channel)\nLR: Audio Physic Classic 3\nC: Audio Physic Classic Center\nSur: KEF Q150\nSubs: Two SVS SB 3000\n\n\nBackground:\nThe room is a basement and there are drops for plumbing and support beams. The high points of the ceiling at 7 feet, the low at 6.5 feet. I had one company come out to look at doing in ceiling but they were worried that there were too many unknowns behind the various drops in the ceiling for them to feel comfortable in definitively run wire in the ceiling. They said I might try doing upfiring. I bought four KEF Q50As to put on top of the 4 speakers. Do I hear a difference? Yes, but it definitely feels like I'm getting a half baked version of it. When watching Ready Player One the scene around 57 mins where the drone fly in I can hear them fly over in the ceiling but there's a couple factors that make me not LOVE it. \n\n1. It doesn't feel precise. Meaning I feel like I can tell that it's trying to work around something. \n2. Aesthetically a bunch of speakers on top of speakers ruins what will otherwise be a pretty clean setup once I'm done\n\nThe Question:\nShould I stop chasing Atmos? I'm 99% sure I'm going to return the Q50As. For me things need to be REALLY good for me to be happy. So this leaves two options.\n\n1. Stick with 5.2 (maybe do 7.2 but I've heard rear surround don't do much either)\n2. Chase getting ceiling speakers done, with risk that I'm not wowed there either and have spent a good amount of time\/money.
