Niche product here folks but for those in the market for getting ATMOS surround sound without carving up the ceiling just seen these for cheapest I've seen - usually £129.99 everywhere. Mixed reviews but happy to experiment with Amazon's returns policy being what it is.

Guessing these would look odd placed on top cheap pioneers: amazon.co.uk/Pio…5.1

Blimey I didn't realise these were that expensive. I got a pair free with my Onkyo amp in a promotion a couple of years back.

Not bad speakers but not as good as real ceiling mounted ones, a lot more practical though and will sit nicely atop a pair of floostanders.
Why would you want early reflections from the ceiling? The very antithesis of hi-fi, surely.
You could buy a decent rather than an unknown brand for that price
you can use any normal speakers and point them upwards using brackets, nothing special about these.

Better with a mainstream than an unknown manufacturer?

Depends on the BUSH, not all are sticky they could be wet and slippery too.

This must be a joke...
Wouldn't buy any speakers from a brand that make yoghurt. Imagine the sound being quite muddy...
Waste of money if placing these on top of existing speakers. If you can't get ceiling speakers in, then put some speakers in top corners of room and angle them down. This will give you a much better Atmos effect.

Who wouldn't? No, I don't want to.

You're welcome.

yep that's what I do - bit of Lego to give an angle :-) then let the amp sort the rest out on it's calibration cycle - but these do look better ;-)
Its lovely yoghurt but branching out into speakers?!! Much prefer Denon yoghurt anyway.
Was thinking about these- mixed views, better to get some B&W M1s and angle them down? Not sure how placing them on top of another speaker, them firing up and sound waves bouncing down from the ceiling is going to give effect!! It’s like comparing a 5.1 - emulating sound bar to actual 5:1 speakers. They are not on the same par.
Obviously the best effect is in ceiling but this is much easier to get going - assuming you have an Atmos capable amp like a Denon that is. At least is will allow it to play Atmos or DTS-X tracks (assuming you have them - some blu-rays and all 4K blu-rays for example)

Price wise there was a deal from amazon.fr at £80 ish which is a more reasonable price as you wont get a lot of overhead sound - but the overall Atmos effect is definitely noticeable

Is there anyway to wall mount these without actually drilling into the wall? How heavy are they?
