New Klipsch Atmos speaker upgrade (5.1.2) pics inside!

Recommended Posts

I finally decided to upgrade my home theater system to an Atmos setup.  I am super impressed by what my current Klipsch setup sounds like so i wanted to take it to the next level.  My Onkyo receiver has Atmos outputs so why not? 5.1.2 here i come! Oh, now i already want more! :D Any of you guys run Atmos? I need some good movies to watch that really highlight it so i can try it out.

These speakers are designed to sound the best aimed up like this or hanging from the wall up high by the TV.  I think you can put them behind you too.  I am going to get some good content and then try both ways to see what works best for my living room.

the rears and 12” sub. I really do love this setup and its not really high dollar. The Onkyo reciever gets a lot of credit too it really sounds awesome with this combo!

That looks totally badass and i bet sounds just as badasss.

Which onkyo?

I currently have the RZ810 and a coworker has the RZ610, and we both love the receiver. Tons of clean power, but i listen to a lot of music so i primarily use the Luxman R-117 for that duty.

I also have a set of klipsch RF82's i use and will one day get the klipsch atmos setup.

I have apple 4k tv and buy and rent a lot of movies on itunes and the rentals start at $ .99 and up, they also have low cost 4k movies for sale that change from time to time. They usually change on wednesdays for rentals with a different movie as a weekly special.

EDIT: They also have an atmos section of movies to choose from.

i actually went out and got an apple tv 4k box this afternoon.  It's nice!  Hard to tell when i am actually watching something with Atmos though.  My receiver is a TX-NR575.

When you go to a movie in apple tv you will see the dolby sign with dolby atmos on it along the top row (Genre)

EDIT: My whole reason to get the apple tv was to eliminate the dvd collection and have everything stored somewhere else.   lol

update: turns out HDMI 3 is the ARC port.  Turns out my TV has no problem outputting Atmos it just needed back/forth communication with my receiver.  I was gonna return the Apple TV but i might just put it in my Escalade.  I just got a new Nav-TV unit that has HDMI in. Should be interesting :D
