No Bluray is "Mixed" to any sound format. Once you rip and encode then you can do all this stuff, but that also no one dose. If a move has 5.1 soundtrack on Bluray, rippers do not upmix to 7.1, that's practically ruining the sound stage. Today most of the movies are 7.1 DTS-MA or DD-THD. And many movies are coming with Atmos, which is growing day by day. Also all movies which are released in Atmos will almost always have DTSMA or THD 7.1 trackFrom what I heard, most movies are mixed in 5.1 format and up mixed to 7.1. Movies mixed in Atmos could be different but most of non atmos movies are 5.1.
No idea about Polks but mine costed 27,000/- each pair.
Coming to the ceiling, I got it made locally at a Neighbouring Welding shop. It has a 3 Level adjustment for adjusting the height.
If you have proper content then Yes, it sounds amazing.Hi Guys, Sorry for being OT. A quick question though . I have a 11.2 Channel Yamaha Z11 AV Amplifier . Will it make sense to go for the latest receivers just for the sake of Atmos and DTS X . Thanks in advance.
Thats why 7.1.2 it is... I am watching most of the movies again now.7.1.2 will be more immersive, coz ....
1. Less titles are in True Atmos ATM, almost every movie is in 7.1 these days.
2. Surround back channel has the more or less same information as overhead channels in terms of effects
3. bipole speakers not for filling gap, and should be avoided at all costs, unless huge space constraints for the Surround and S.Back speakers
4. yes, but when it comes to "immersion" 2 Atmos speakers paired with 4 surrounds gives a better experience
5. same as 4
6. same as 5
7 same as 6.
And this is by my personal experience, as a Home Theater enthusiast and installed couple personally by me I can vouch..... 7.1.2 gives more immersive experience than 5.1.4
Easy way to figure out the locations: measure from your ears to the ceiling, that same distance ahead & behind the listener is 45 degrees elevation.top speakers should be 45 degree ahead and top back should be 45degree behind the listener
Since you are seated close to the back wall, it looks like you'll have to install the rear height speakers in the false ceiling. The front heights location will likely be on the concrete ceiling (assuming you want to place them at the Dolby recommended locations).Would it be possible to install some in-ceiling speakers into this false ceiling or would i need to attach them on the bare concrete ceiling?
Speakers almost always sound best on-axis. Why would you aim speakers at some random spots on the floor instead of pointing them towards the listeners?There is no requirement for them to be "looking into" / tilted to the listener , right? they could be just downfiring direct speakers?
I wanted something small, good looking, highly resolving speakers, which can be easily wall mounted and I went with this..Ear to ceiling height is 6'. That doesn't leave any space for the top rear. So might as well only do top middle layer. 5.1.2 or 7.1.2.
I have found just 2-3 speaker choice for concrete ceiling. Pretty pathetic..
My budget is upto 25-30K , and I would like a speaker that can go down well ,maybe 50-60Hz..
Get as close as possible with the Top Rear (mount them as far back as you can). Even with the Top Rears not at 45 degrees elevation behind you, the benefits are still worth it. 2 speakers overhead let you hear left vs right movement. 4 speakers overhead let you hear left vs right AND front vs back movement.Ear to ceiling height is 6'.

Thank you @sdurani : Could I mount the Rear Atmos on the back wall, just where the false ceiling meets the wall below. That seems like an easier installation than on the false ceiling.Get as close as possible with the Top Rear (mount them as far back as you can).

@drkrack : thank you , I will try to explore them as well.I wanted something small, good looking, highly resolving speakers, which can be easily wall mounted and I went with this..
Monitor Audio MASS 5.0
They do not go below 80 hz, and I didn't expect them to. I'll be anyways using LFE+ to route all LF response to subwoofer, which is specifically designed for that purpose. I'm pretty happy with the performance of these. You can get them at 70k for 5 speakers. If you can get from UK each will cost around 10k from Amazon UK.
Getting a big sound, and better Low end punch from small speakers is a biggest challenge for speaker designers, and it's never adequate. A DIY with full range speakers from Fostex can be attempted to fulfill your needs.
Yes you can mount them close to where the false ceiling meets the wall but you would have to bring your surrounds down.Thank you @sdurani : Could I mount the Rear Atmos on the back wall, just where the false ceiling meets the wall below.

Went to Sound by Design, Gurgaon yesterday and got a few options for Atmos speakers (basically satellites/micros) , but they sounded awesome!!
I am thinking of something like Cambridge Audio Min/22, Bose Satellites, Dali Fazon(too expensive), PSB Alpha LR1
