Game of thrones is also pretty awesome to watch in ATMOS.

Yes, aimable tweeters Smile.

@dukester, re: placement, it will be like pic @Shank posted in post #21, in ceiling, w/tweeters pointed toward main seating area.

@movie78, thanks for that great list of movies. I need to build my 'Gravity' 3D w/ATMOS from 2D disc as well Big Grin!

Do have a question though, and maybe more as I start to set-up next week. Below is plan for connecting Yamaha to my Pioneer VSX-822. It's what the Yamaha FAQ site suggests. But, what volume do I leave the Pioneer at? Midway between zero and max?

I hope Deadpool come in ATMOS or DTS:X in 3D, but chances are it will release in 4K only with DTS:X or ATMOS, at least that is what the trends are going these daysSad

BD specs are out, no 3D, and no Atmos, just DTS-HD 7.1

Ya I was hoping it wasn't true also. That's some serious BS.

It's BS, I was willing to purchase UHD Blu-ray player until I saw the price tag $400Angry
I hope the PS4.5 will support UHD Blu-ray or if someone can crack the AACS 2.0 protection.

Sucks as RedFox doesn't seem any further along w/UHD BD.

So, finally aboard the ATMOS and DTS:X bandwagon... and it's awesome Big Grin! Honestly hadn't expected height audio to have that much impact, coming from an already nice 7.1 set-up, but it indeed does. It's more immersive, and what I particularly love about the new audio formats is the pinpoint placement of audio and effects at specific spots 360-degrees around you. Have mostly tested ATMOS and X samples so far, but love it. Haven't tested enough, but so far, ATMOS seems marginally better than X.

Some pics of my install and finished set-up here.

Was a PITA though as my HT is in the basement, so had to cut drywall, drill holes through studs in difficult spots, fish speaker wires through, repair and finally set-up. Took 3-4 days, off and on. Also, setting up main Yamaha 3050 AVR w/second Denon AVR to driver fronts in 7.1.4 was bang-your-head-in-the-wall affair for a couple of hours. I was getting no audio from the second AMP... then, finally figured it out: the CD input was set to HDMI, and had to be changed to accept analog! Duh!

Thankfully, Yamaha's YPAO calibration, room correction set-up was a breeze Smile!

Thanks for all the advise and suggestions in the thread.
