Be aware that your ceiling needs to be a certain height and ideally not vaulted for this to work as intended. I considered something like this for my basement but the ceiling is about a foot too low.

Why so hostile? I dont think that person said, let alone implied there was no ideal height.

You think people have 4' ceilings?

What's the height?

Would high mounted speakers work for Atmos instead of the ones that shoot at the ceiling?

That's somewhat true. But most Atmos enabled receivers have a height adjustment for Atmos upfiring speakers. My Pioneer 503 does.

I think they are the same quality. Both excellent sound. Only reason I'm not buying these is I have the rp4000f already. They sound great. I'm waiting on a deal on the rp8000f before I upgrade.

Be careful they use ups for shipping, klipsch doesn't package well, after my set arrived damaged twice they refunded me.

How about the popular JBL 580? I know they don't do Atmos but I'm hearing awesome things and they sell for $380 as a deal.

Via Dolby's website:

"The ideal ceiling height is between 7.5 and 12 feet (2.3 and 3.66 meters). The ceiling should be constructed of an acoustically reflective material, such as wallboard, plaster, hardwood, or any rigid, nonsound-absorbing material. For optimal playback, the ceiling should be flat. A shallow vaulted ceiling will provide acceptable performance."

Ideal height for ceiling mounted speakers is about the same, I believe. Visit Dolby's website. They have great diagrams that show you the correct angles both in the horizontal and vertical planes. Ceiling speakers are vastly superior, although some argue there is a negligible difference, After enough first-hand accounts, I believe that it is much better to ceiling mount speakers. I personally have them wall-mounted about 6 inches from ceiling. Although there aren't a lot of options to hear Atmos currently (unless you have upgraded Netflix account or lots of 4K blu rays), when I do hear it on a movie such as John Wick, the difference is very noticeable and taking the atmos speakers off leaves me feeling like something is missing. I think video games will take good advantage of 3-D sound and most movies in the future will have it as an audio track. That might take another 3-5 years to happen. The advent of ATSC 3.0 antenna might speed that up since it'll allow broadcast tv to have 3-D audio capabilities.

You think that having ideal height ceiling means the receivers don't adjust for distance? The receiver always adjusts for distances. Do you think this means that there is no ideal height? You think 4' ceilings would work for directing sound waves upwards, reflecting off a ceiling, then coming back down to your ears? Pay this person no mind. ALL atmos capable speakers adjust for height of ceilings and distances. Otherwise it wouldn't be a dolby certified receiver. With a name like DirtyDiz spelled with 1's, it's best to trust me, the guy who has had a 5.2.4 atmos setup since 2016.
