With the 5.1 channel SKSHT588 speaker it will be able to deliver a Dolby Atmos sound all backed up with an immersive bass from the subwoofer. The speaker will deliver an immersing direction effect and the satellite speakers are small enough for a discreet placement and can easily be wall mounted.

With two way front speakers it will integrate an upward firing which will bounce off the ceiling and into the audience giving the impression of sounds originating from overhead.

The front speakers are complemented by two small wall mountable surround sound speakers dual drive 2 way centre speakers and also a powerful 10 inch subwoofer which will deliver 80W of bass power.

Overall the SKSHT588 is a great encompassing sound from Onkyo..

Ha ha, "Atmos Ready", is that going to be the new sales pitch for getting rid of vanilla speakers. Almost as bad as having a turbo button that does nothing on your pc.

An Av Receiver, for them to work properly you'll need a Atmos enabled one otherwise you might as well just stick with 5.1

Oh wise one, which brand should I use? I have only heard of Sony. Yamaha make motorbikes, and Denon make yoghurts.

Which reminds me...Does this speaker set come with an Activia sub?

Well it's rather misleading saying "Atmos ready" when that means get ready to have to buy 2 more speakers.

This speaker set-up is 5.1.2 and definitely Atmos.

The front speakers are Onkyo SKF-693, which have incorporated upwards firing drivers.

It's not the OP's fault Hughes have errors in their eBay listing.

Paired with an Atmos capable receiver such as the Sony STR-1080 or Onkyo NR-686, they are a great stepping stone into Atmos that will allow you to upgrade each set of speakers over time.

Fobbed mine off on me brother, who is over the moon whilst I enjoy an entirely new set-up now .

Heat for the deal .

You don't. Two of the speakers incorporate upward firing drivers.

On mine both front and rears have upwards drivers. Anyway if it's 5.1.2 its mislabelled above.

Unless you have side rear, as well as rears but, have upwards firing speakers front and back, then your system is 5.1.4. Not 7.1, which is what I think you were suggesting in your earlier post.

Do you mind if I ask what Atmos speakers you have front and rear?

If they're incorporated; are they Focal, Klipsh or Pioneer?

You kinda have a point, most machines I dismantled in those days had nothing wired to it but those that actually worked were, believe it or not, supposed to slow down the cpu to allow you to run older games at their natural speed.

They are Samsung. And yes, I meant that 5.1 is not enough. On Atmos tracks it says "7.1 True HD" regardless of how you configure your speakers to play the 8 channels.

Ah OK, thanks for the confirmation you don't know what you're talking about.

I read with interest your comments here hotukdeals.com/dea…e=2 regarding 'QLED', which is nothing more than a Samsung branding, dreamt up by Samsung's marketing department and not a recognised technology.

The fact you referred to an ongoing test on 2017 model OLED's in your previous posts to attack a technology you're clearly not keeping pace with, coupled with the fact Samsung do not make Artmos speakers, merely a soundbar that may kid you into believing it is capable of some sort of faux Atmos, confirms my suspicions you're nothing more than A) a Samsung fan boy or B) work for Samsung.

The OP's deal is still a deal and an ideal launch pad into Atmos that will allow the owner to upgrade each pair of speakers at their convenience.

You are clearly trolling, and as to who doesn't know what they are talking about, my Samsung HW-n950 begs to differ.

And completely off topic, but it makes little difference what year OLED you are talking about - burn in is an inherent problem with TVs based on LG screens - for instance - zdnet.com/article/lg-oled-burn-in-at-incheon-airport-reignites-controversy/

And the most basic of research would tell you that quantum dots are not just a name but have notable advantages over many other panel types.

For instance "Quantum Dot displays are capable of displaying wider color gamuts than OLEDs with some devices approaching full coverage of the BT.2020 color gamut"

Ah, Wikipedia, that bastion of the truth .
Once again, you have not only proved you know nothing about the subject to which you seek to champion.

Samsung falsely presents QLED as a self emissive technology. What it actually is, is nothing more an LCD panel that uses a colour enhancing quantum dot sheet overlaid on a backlight.

Samsung QLED TVs are therefore NOT true QLED since it does not actually use quantum-dot light-emitting diodes.

QLED is nothing more than a gimmick which you are promoting.

BOOM! Drops mic...

Wikipedia tends to be more reliable than trolls. And the article includes verifiable references.

If Samsung QLED is self emissive is irrelevant to that almost all your original statements were incorrect. And anyway actually Samsung do have a self emissive version - "true QLED" as you put it - it's called "The Wall".
