Dolby Atmos setup Help

15.04.2019 21:47 #1
Hi Team, 

I am planning to setup Dolby Atmos home theatre system in my new home and am looking for recommendations. 

For the AV receivers, Was looking at Denon 2500 and Sony 1080. Could you please let me know which one is the best out of the 2 and why? Does these 2 Receivers support Active Subwoofers?

W.r.t the speakers, I am looking at something like Q Aquostics 3020i package or similar. However, I am not keen on running wires for the rear speakers. Are there any options that support this for the rear wireless speakers supported by these 2 AV receivers I mentioned above. 

Also, for the Atmos over the ceiling speakers, could you please give some recommendations? 

Thanks
PB

Hi bharath.balla,

Thanks for the post and apologies for the delay getting back to you.

Between the AV receivers I would recommend the Sony. Both have very similar features but for sound quality I think the Sony just edges out the Denon. It also won the What HiFi Award this year for best AV receiver in it's class. Unfortunately neither the Denon nor the Sony will work with wireless speakers so you would need to go for a wired speaker system.

The Q Acoustics is a great set however I would recommend the Monitor Audio Bronze 2 5.1 package which comes with the Award winning Bronze 2 fronts and the dedicated dipole/bipole rears which give greater dispersion for the rear channels. I could do a Sony STRDN1080 and a Monitor Audio Bronze 2 5.1 pack for £1410 (normal retail price £1649).

For Atmos speakers are you looking for in ceiling speakers or the upfiring Atmos speakers which are angled towards the ceiling?

If you are looking for in ceilings I would recommend matching the system with Monitor Audio C165s. i could do two of these for £178. The best stand alone/upfiring Atmos speakers would be the Elac A4 Atmos speakers at £249 but I could do a pair of these for £220.

Let me know what you think of this system and if you have any questions!

Kind regards

David
