Is living with Dolby Atmos worth the faff?


Re: Pure H2O versus Flavoured drinks

This is just what I was thinking. When I started building my AV system I had a base point of music has to sound stunning, films should be good as well.

As a result I have a 4.0 system (I only use the front speakers for music though) that keeps up with any 5.1 system that I have heard (to be fair, for the money it should). When it rains I look outside (deduct a point ;p), when Star Destroyers come into picture the glass above the doors rattles (on the low notes of Taccota and Fugue in D minor as well) and most importantly when playing Air on a G String I can close my eyes and almost be in the same room as the violinist.

I wonder just what extra dimension this adds, and considering the price of the amp for everything it does, what it takes away with quality short cuts.
