Anyone tried this upfiring Atmos Vs speakers place on side ceiling, can you tell the difference
Worth noting that they are also selling this bundle with the Wharfedale DX-2s for the same price, given those speakers seem to be £50 more than the Onkyo everywhere, that looks like a better deal on paper, provided you’re happy to go without or add Atmos separately.
If you are dead set against getting either standmount or floorstanding speakers/don't have the room for anything better then reviews suggest you wouldn't do better sub £500.
Stop looking and do it, you'll be staggered at what you've been missing especially if you have room for one of their 12” ones. BK are as cheap as you can get a sub worth buying and for most you'll never need anything more... unless you get the bug of course and then it's multiple subs and much bigger money.
I can't comment on them directly, and wouldn't like to as I haven't heard them. I only had the Q Acoustics to compare and I'm no expert, just a geek who did his homework and demoed before spending what is fair amount of money for me on a surround system! I'd imagine they would be a step up, certainly in build. A friend has a Wharfedale Diamond 5.1 setup and it sounds fantastic, though they're more pricey than the DX-2. You'd need to add Atmos obviously. If you get the bug you'll probably upgrade anything you buy anyway! I'm buying a new house next year and will be installing ceiling speakers and will certainly install wiring for an extra two Atmos speakers while I'm at it and that will be an AVR upgrade!
