Question Rotel 1087 5.1 compared to Yamaha3050 atmos 11.1


Active Member
listening to my old Rotel based 5.1 system against my newer yamaha 3050 atmos 11.1, the Rotel just seems to deliver more information around the back channels whereas the supposedly sophisticated system seems to deliver far less back channel information.
The simpler system was set up with a sound meter whereas the atmos rig was setup with the dedicated microphone kit.
I was wondering if the dedicated analysis might be more accurate but less fun?
Or could it be the 2 rears on the Rotel based system are against a back wall and could add reinforcement ,whereas the 4 sides and rears are pretty free standing?
