Hello to everyone. I have this Sound system
Denon Avr 3300w
2x Klipsch R-28f front speakers
2x Klipsch R-15m Surround speakers
1x Klipsch R-115 SW Sub
Samsung 49" 4k Tv

My question is , i want to upgrade it to either 7.2 and add another sub ,the center speaker and the 2 side speakers or upgrade it to 5.2.2 and add the center, the sub and another 2 dolby atmos front speakers to fit up to my R-28 F 's. The picture at the bottom is exactly my room. What should i do and for what reason. Btw I've calibrated my system with the Denon Audyssey XT 32 and the sound comes a little more noticeable from the left side of my system.

Definitely 5.2.2. Place the surrounds at 110 degrees. Rear speakers are probably the least important improvement to a system, and should be on the last of the list to add. Atmos is incredible compared to 5.1 or 7.1

 

I’d suggest using real overhead speakers.

I agree and would second this advice other than the suggestion of using real overhead speakers. All of the articles I have read on Atmos installations state to make the determination on what Atmos speakers (overhead or upfiring speakers that rest on the towers) to incorporate based on your ceiling height in your room. If you ceiling is 10ft. or less, the upward firing Atmos speakers give a greater effect than speakers mounted directly above your head.

 

Do your own research before deciding. However, I know I researched extensively because I could have installed my Atmos speakers just as easily either way.

Thank  you for your answers. About the issue that the sound comes louder on the left side of the system . Could it be that the size of the room is a trapezium or  Could it be that the subwoofer is on the left side? ( I may have the sub's crossover too high and it plays sounds that should come only from the tower speakers)

I have a decent 5.1 system and am looking to upgrade. My current speaker system is Jamo 5.0 S-803 HCS + Elac SUB_1010 10". I'm looking at my upgrade optoions. My 5.1 receiver is still good but I am going to get either a 5.2.2 or 7.2 as mine doesn't have Atmos, add another sub and Atmos speakers. I like the Jamo brand and would like to add 2 towers with the Atmos top mounts (S-809 + ATM-50 Atmos) and mount 2 more to the top of my existing S-803 fronts, which will be relocated to the rear surround position. If I get what I'm considering, the 809s would replace the 803s as fronts with the Atmos units on top, the 803s would replace the 801s as the rears with either another pair of the ATM-50s or the S-8 ATM mounted atop and a J-12 for the second sub. If I'm correct, this system configuration would eliminate my 801s, whereas if I went with a 7.2 receiver I would be able to use them? Or do I have to go to a 9.2 system? And is it going to work with a second pair of Atmos speakers at the rear?
