the Yamaha 3040 is pushing my price range and the more I read on Atmos it doesn't seem like many movies are rated for it. I was thinking of pre-wiring for it and then upgrading equipment down the road when it becomes more mainstream...

Also I have never owned a system amplifier. Is there a benefit to saving on receiver and getting an amplifier?

If you go ATMOS you are likely looking to add an amp anyhow. Most AVRs only drive max 9 channels right now.

What you are referring to is going seperates vs an all in one receiver. There are pluses and minuses to both and strong opinions for either being better.

I chose a hybrid approach, as many do, and will run my front channels on outboard amps and let the AVR run the rest. Most of the soundtrack (over 90% according to hometheater geeks podcasts) comes from the front 3 speakers. I doubt this will change much, even with ATMOS, as the sound must still be anchored to the picture.

An AVR is the "brain" of the system while an outboard amp is the "brawn". I much prefer the theoretical "capabilities" of the hybrid approach..... Theoretical because mine are still in the box.

Putty applied to electrical boxes today. smile
