Is there anyway to wall mount these without actually drilling into the wall? How heavy are they?
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
Edited by: "jwsg" 10th Feb
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.
Its lovely yoghurt but branching out into speakers?!! Much prefer Denon yoghurt anyway.

I ended up caving and going for this. Arrived yesterday. Oddly, they've sent the silver version but not really fussed colour-wise.

In terms of sound it's a really nice little speaker. It's certainly not gonna pump out huge bass but the sound is nicely balanced and perfect for round the house.

Overall, impressed for the money but think at RRP it would have been a push.

Oh, and the fact it charges by USB is the reason i went for it. My Sony speaker has a huge power brick and a barrel connector.

Had a similar hunt for Atmos Speakers, after picking up the Pioneer VSX930 AV Receiver in an earlier clearance at Richer Sounds. 'proper' atmos bookshelf speakers in this country are very expensive (£600+). In the end I picked up the following speakers on ebay, from the USA:

SP-BS22A-LR Andrew Jones Designed Dolby Atmos Bookshelf Speaker (Black)


They are still on now (if you search the above words), and cost about £190. Please note, though, that there is delivery and import tax as well, which pretty much adds up to £100 more. Still better than £600!

As these are ups (atmos) + fronts, I combined these with Canton Movie 75 5.1 speaker set to effectively create a 7.1.2 setup (I moved the canton right/left fronts to right/left 'middles'. Purist audiophiles might say that mixing speaker sets up in this way is dodgy, but sounds great to me.

You'll always be amazed by how ignorant people can be.

Absolutely fantastic headphones. Best Bluetooth available at this price and all the way upto the P7 wireless which are better but not by much. They also compare well to my Audeze Sine
These are fantastic headphones! The sound is phenomenal for the price. Compared to a set Beats Solo 2 that a work colleague has, these sound better in every way. Bass is deeper, but far clearer. Treble reaches higher but sounds smoother and the mids are far more realistic. I know beating Beats on sound isn't much, so to add to this, I also prefer the sound on these to my 'open back' Sennheiser HD515s and I haven't used the Sennheisers since buying the Onkyos.

Well I have just completed setting up my new receiver, it took me just under 2 hours, I have a severe back problem which limits my mobility, so would take most able bodied people around 30-45 minutes I guess

The time it took me to setup included wiring in all the different speakers, sub woofer and re-programming my Harmony Touch remote control too

First impressions were wow this is way louder and dynamic than my last amp (Sony), I tried it out with my satellite receiver, playstation 4, built in media center and some different music genre examples

I must say I am over the moon with it, it's everything I hoped it would be and more

I run a 747 into the same speakers and the sound is stunning. You will be … I run a 747 into the same speakers and the sound is stunning. You will be very pleased with a 656 I'm sure.
