I guess it all depends on how much you are spending overall

I thought the new Eggs have dropped a fair bit in price. And I've always thought they sounded pretty impressive despite their size

yeah.. waiting anxiously for some reviews later on for upfiring reflection vs direct from ceiling. Saw some decent-looking Dayton and JBL satellites speakers with mounts. No false ceiling so no in-ceiling types.
no false ceiling? What about your ceiling speaker cables?

Egg speakers cannot mount on ceiling.
Even on wall, it cannot be freely adjust to fire downwards (limited angle adjustment up & down).

That's what I posted earlier.

Have you seen the new E305 stands? They seem to have slightly better degrees of articulation - tho I am not sure if it is enough.

In the past, I believe you could. Not sure about the E305s

Had my contractor come in for an initial recce, and Nic came along too... so we will be planning the laying of 13.2 speakers for my mum's new home, and retro-fitting my current setup soon..

We will see how things pan out in the next few months, then see where to place the speakers..

Just watched TF4 in a Dolby Atmos cinema theatre. The surround envelop and steering is awesome, esp the vertical or diagonal paradigm. Exciting to see how this is going to take off at home. :) brace

No worries

Things are still fluid, so when work starts and I know what to, I can post a thread...

Anyhow, there are so many uncertainties in the new Atmos capable amps, that it's hard to predict how things will work out.
It seems that the first generation aren't really object based.. and you can get 11 channel Atmos but not wides..
