That was my thought, but it seems to be getting a lot attention from reviewers. I’ve barely seen it mentioned on this forum. It looks like it’ll be available within the next few days in the US at $999, which is currently the same price as the q90r. I don’t foresee myself running out to get it, but I’d be interested in some user reviews. I wonder how much smaller the soundstage sounds when speakers are pointed up for Atmos, and how good the rears are. They seem small.
If you could adjust the actual angle of the rotating speakers that could really help with getting the correct Atmos effect no matter how far the seating area is. I don’t think that’s possible though.
