    Can I use my AVR200 to power my Atmos speakers

    Hi So I recently upgraded from my (ancient but much loved) Arcam AVR200 to a new Arcam AVR390 and I'm currently running it in a 7.1 formation. I'd really like to add 4 atmos to the set-up but obviously the 390 only has 7 channels on-board so I need an external amp. Can I feasibly use my old...

    A pair of up-firing Dolby Atmos speakers assigned and positioned as "Surround Dolby"

    I understand that it is conventional (and I have had this setup before) if using only a pair of up-firing speakers to have them in the front position (normally on top of front speakers). However, it is possible to have a pair and to assign them as "Surround Dolby" and place them on top of the...

    Kef Q50a's in downfiring mode

    I may need to move my Kef Q50a's from upfiring to front height/downfiring. Basically they don't fit on top of my LS50s properly and my current positioning isn't leading to a decent result. I'm therefore thinking of mounting them on the wall above my left and right speakers (thanks to Kef for...

    Upgrade from 2 to 4 Atmos speakers (or not)

    Adding Dolby Atmos speakers to an existing set-up 5.1.2.

    Question Atmos speakers with no Atmos source - pointless?
