5.1.4 dolby atmos

  • Hi There,

    I am looking to setup a 5.1.4 dolby atmos system under $1000 with top firing speakers (i cannot do a ceiling speaker since i live in an apartment).

    Onkyo ht-s7700 seems to be a good option but then i would have to add additional 2 top firing speakers with the surround speakers. i am not sure if i can add the additional speakers at the first place.

    Any advice?



  • According to Onkyo's website the HT-S7700 is only 5.1.2 capable, so you would not be able to add another pair of Atmos enabled speakers to it. To do 5.1.4 you would need a 9 channel receiver, not sure if you're going to able to put a whole system together for under $1000. The cheapest 9 channel we have is the Marantz SR7008.
