Audio settings for 5.2.1 set up


Active Member

I have a 5.2.1 set up with front height speakers on top of floorstanders at the front (Monitor Audio bronze AMS) so was wondering the best set up.

- Should I select 5.1 or 7.1 audio set up - looking at the 7.1 diagram this does not reflect my set up as no front height channels
- PCM/Dolby/DTS format priority?

I only use the PS5 for gaming



The ps5 doesn't natively support Atmos but it supports passthrough for blurays that have it. I run mine as 7.1 for my 5.0.2 system and let the amp sort out the positing and the use of the Atmos overheads
