Let me ask this another way.
When I play a Atmos Blu Ray through my Oppo 105 outputting via the 7.1 channel RCA analog output of the Oppo into a Denon Receiver (again via the RCA inputs), the side speakers seem too be playing the extra channels that are dedicated to the Atmos track.
If, that is true, then all I would need is to mount the side speakers on the ceiling.
Am I missing something?
Yes, you can mount the side speakers on ceiling, and change the setting on your receiver from 7.1 to Atmos 5.1.2
I play a Atmos Blu Ray through my Oppo 105 outputting via the 7.1 channel RCA analog output of the Oppo into a Denon Receiver (again via the RCA inputs)Dolby Astmos must use HDMI connection and set output to bitstream out to receiver/prepro, analog output will not give you dolby astmos, what you get is 7.1 surround decoded by your blu ray player.
Just got the new Oppo 205. (Again, I am using the analog outputs into my Denon 5803 receiver). When playing a video and I select from the on screen menu the Atmos over the 5.1 setting I do hear discreet sounds through my 7.1 speaker set up.
So, is the Atmos track being blended into the side channels?
