Onkyo HT-S9700 Home Theater System Driver
I still got a little bit of that congested feeling and some of the higher frequencies ended up sounding a little tinny. Really, the Dolby Surround mode just didn't seem necessary in this case. Enabling it didn't give me the positive impact on the soundstage that I would soon hear with native Atmos material.
Speaking of which, next I auditioned Transformers: Let's start with the more subtle soundstage cues. I was able to get a sense of a much taller soundstage than I ever could with regular 5.
Equipment Reviews: Onkyo HT-S Home Theater System Reviewed
In an early scene as explorers walk around inside underground caverns or in later scenes inside of Lockdown's ship, you definitely get Onkyo HT-S9700 Home Theater System sense from the overhead echoes that you are in a very tall, cavernous space. Top-down motions also sounded natural and convincing. When Mark Walhberg's character first awakens a confused Optimus Prime, Prime attacks him, and you get a clear sense of a tall character attacking a low target in a downward-panning motion.
Was there a big difference between the upward-firing, ceiling-reflected sound compared with the direct-firing drivers you experience with Atmos in the theaters? But the upward-firing drivers produced a convincing enough effect, at least for the material it was being asked to present. Keep in mind that the height channels will probably mostly be used for effects and occasionally dialogue, and I had no complaints with the height-channel dialogue I heard.
Whenever the super-tall Autobots talked downward Onkyo HT-S9700 Home Theater System their human compatriots, I had no trouble with the clarity of the voices or with imagining the height of the characters speaking. I would guess, if ever there were a scene that required imagining a full orchestral performance coming from overhead, then a ceiling-speaker implementation of Atmos would probably noticeably outperform the upward-firing one.
All of this works very well when the action is located in front of the viewer's perspective.

However, when objects fly overhead that pan from front to back or vice versa, such as when a remote-controlled Onkyo HT-S9700 Home Theater System in Transformers flies above the screen position, the illusion breaks down a little. When the sound is supposed to come from or go to the rear, it never truly rose above ear level at the back end, where I place my surround speakers.
Since there were no rear height speakers in this setup, it would be unfair Onkyo HT-S9700 Home Theater System expect sound to be realistically generated overhead in the back. I received a copy of the Dolby Atmos demo disc used at CEDIA; and, with the rain sequence in the "Amaze" scene, I got a clear sense that the rain was dropping down from a higher position than I was.
I was even able to get a sense that the rain was coming from a little forward of the front wall as in the projection screen position. But with only two Atmos-enabled speakers in the front, it was not enough to give me the sense that the Onkyo HT-S9700 Home Theater System was centered above my head and coming from all around above me. High Current Amplification for Power and Control Wattage is an indication of loudness, not sound quality. The real test is current.
High instantaneous current enhances speaker control for accurate and musical audio reproduction. Solid MDF cabinets feature A-OMF diaphragms layered polyethylene naphthalate and flexible cotton weave material to improve stiffness and heat resistance for vivid Onkyo HT-S9700 Home Theater System natural mid-range performance. Where other brands skimp on the surrounds, we include proper two-way speakers with 13 cm A-OMF drivers to ensure you get maximum impact from all directions.
Rounding out the package is a high-capacity acoustic-suspension subwoofer fitted with a 30 cm front-firing cone for Watts of wall-shaking bass. The included guide gives a nice visual and textual description of speaker placement.
The front Dolby-enabled speakers should be about ear height for best imaging performance. The small surround speakers are supposed to be just above ear height. Finally, Onkyo recommends placing the subwoofer between the front and center channel speakers for the best performance.

The main receiver included with the system is a full-blown Onkyo receiver — which is a great thing as they have made some excellent receivers over the years. Like one of their standalone receivers, it comes with an included setup microphone and an easy user interface setup routine.
I did not have to make any adjustments to the crossover levels or distances.
