But have you actually watched a BD with an Atmos soundtrack? If not then any 5.1 receiver would give you the same surround effect. Atmos is not a simulation effect like Dolby Pro Logic. It requires a soundtrack with dedicated Atmos height encoding to produce its effect. It does nothing to enhance standard soundtracks.
