    Ceiling speakers for Dolby Atmos and acoustic tiles

    Hi folks, I am in the middle of moving into my new house. I have set up the cinema room but still need to get a ceiling mounted projector screen and some acoustic tiles to take away the echos etc.

    Two questions then:

    1. I'm going to upgrade to Dolby Atmos 5.1.4 in the next month. The rest of my speakers are in my signature. However, can anyone recommend ceiling speakers to go with the rest of my setup? I'll have to get a new amp too. Looking at the Denon 6200x.

    2. As all I have in the room is av equipment (and a piano at the back) I need to improve the acoustics. Any ideas?

    As always, all help appreciated.

    I looked at sound proofing the room (as mentioned in another thread) but it was just too expensive. Maybe in the future though.

    Thanks

    Re: Ceiling speakers for Dolby Atmos and acoustic tiles

    I would imagine trying to use speakers with a similar audio signature would be useful - I did listen to a Atmos setup at the Indulgence show but it was using very,very expensive speakers.

    How about these units:

    or these:

    Someone using the Silver series speakers with the ceiling ones I mentioned:

    Thanks Cat

    I have been looking at the CT265-IDC. Read somewhere that the FX version wouldn't be suitable.

    I had also looked at the cp series which would reduce the noise going upstairs a bit.
