Yes Sonus does a very good job . I have compared mounting Sonus in Front heights & Top Middle (On ceiling ) .Out of this Top Middle configuration was fantastic. Follow the spec of Atmos For Top Mddle -It should be mounted 65 degree to 100 degree from your Main Listening Position (MLP) .If your mounting 5.1.4 setup then follow 30 to 55 degree on either side from your MLP.Check the Figure Attached.
Good luck!!!
Thanks you have been very helpful. Denon 2400 will support only 5.1.2 so can’t plan 5.2. Spoke with Volumate he is willing to give for 13882. Asked him about Dali as well so mostly by tonight I’ll decide nd make the purchase

Ok.Mount it with Top Middle configuration as per Atmos Spec .U will be happy. U can also check with Decibel -Chennai for Sonodyne to have the current price idea .(I have bought it from them ).Good Luck.

Thanks for all your inputs. Without comparing with Dali just how good is the sonus. I can manage the sound variations cause I am already used to it with my Polk subwoofer it doesn’t match well with the dali’s . But want to know if I will get quality sound effects clearly from above with the Sonus.
For sure, you will be able to hear clearly with SONUS

Thanks a lot for all ur valuable points. Now I will patiently plan my budget nd build the best for my room. Sold my Polk psw125 just today. I also returned the daliz1 it was loaned to me for auditioning. Now I have to get top speakers,zensor one and a sub matching the set up. Will do some more research nd invest wisely

Good luck.
Audition is a key for purchasing.So please try to do possible audition .Regarding sub ,the main is placement .If budget permits go for dual subs.
The following subs can be prefred.
  • Velodyne Impact 12.
  • Dali sub e-12f
  • SVS pb1000/2000 -depending on budget
  • BIC

Velodyne is good but did not convince me......

You can add this sub to the Yamaha list

https://in.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/speaker_systems/yst-sw315/index.html

See who offers the best price....also visit Profx and audition their Polk HTS 10 and HTS 12.....these were newly launched in March 2018 and got a chance to touch and hear them at the What Hifi show in Mumbai......decent subs....good for music and movies....a notch less than the BIC F12.....BIC PL 200 is still miles ahead in terms of SQ and smooth performance.
