    Hi guys, I love my new Denon Receiver, I bought it around 4 months ago to replace a X3100 that wasn't able to do UHD pass throough. At the same time I purchased the Onkyo SDH 410 "upward firing" speakers as I live in rented accom and therefore can't use ceiling mounted.

    The receiver it self seems a MASSIVE step up, everything just seems clearer with more accurate steering, I don't know if this is just down to the amp itself, Audyssey XT32 or maybe the old amp had a slight fault!

    Anyway, one thing I can't quite get right is the atmos affects. They never seem to pan over head and I'm now asking what peoples success has been.

    My current set up;

    Samsung JS8500 55"
    Panasonic UB900 UHD player
    Denon X4200 using an Arcam A85 to power the fronts via pre-outs
    Monitor Audio Bronze 5.1 + 2x additional Bronze FX
    Onkyo SDH 410 Atmos speakers

    My seated position is against the rear wall (really cant do anything about this) with the rears mounted on the sides and rear wall at a height of 160cm. The centre is too high, again I can't do anything as home owner decided to put a 1.3m fireplace in meaning my TV sits directly above on the wall with the centre above that at a height of around 2.2m!!

    So I can't do anything with the placement of the centre or surrounds, however I'm perfectly happy with their performance, Audyssey seems to have sorted this. My only issue is with atmos affects placement

    any advice appreciated, thanks
