5.1.2-Channel Dolby Atmos Delivers Three Dimensional Surround Sound

Here is a PDF link to the regularly-updated full list of new and previous Dolby Atmos encoded releases that are now available. If you want to be able to experience them in all their immersive three-dimensional surround sound audio glory from the comfort of your home, you will need a Dolby-Atmos capable 7.2-channel or more home theater receiver, a Blu-ray Disc player, and a 5.1.2 speaker system. It's just a matter of whether you will be mounting a pair of separate elevation speakers in your ceiling (Dolby 5.1.2 Overhead Speaker Placement Guide, or instead reflecting the height signal off of your ceiling from the tops of Dolby Atmos enabled front left and right speakers Dolby Atmos Enabled Speaker Placement Guide). You will need to separately purchase (in-wall) speaker wire and a subwoofer cable.

If you want high-performance truly three-dimensional sound from a beautiful compact speaker system, you will definitely want to check out the Made-in-France Focal Dome Flax 5.1.2 speaker system pictured below left which is available for purchase from HiDEF Lifestyle at It includes a pair of 300 ICW 4 in-ceiling speakers along with five identical two-way Dome Flax satellite speakers and the compact wireless Sub Air 8-inch 110-watt RMS powered subwoofer.

If you are on a tight budget, you should consider the Onkyo SKS-HT594 pictured above right which is also available at This is nearly identical to the speaker package that is included with Onkyo's HT-S5800 Home Theater In a Box system.

5.1.2-Channel Dolby Atmos Surround From Just 5.1 Klipsch Speakers

If you want to set up a Dolby Atmos surround sound system without the hassle of attaching separate elevation speakers on top of floor standing towers, or fishing wires to flush mount speakers in your ceiling, you should strongly consider two Klipsch RP-280FA Dolby Atmos enabled floor standing towers (available from OneCall) pictured below far left for your front left and right speakers. The elevation channel is built right into the top of each speaker!!

Then you could add the RP-450C center channel speaker (from OneCall) shown above second from left, two RP-250S surround speakers (from OneCall) shown third from left, and a R-112SW 12-inch powered subwoofer and WA-2 wireless connection kit (from OneCall) pictured far right to provide the low frequency effects. You will need to run four speaker wires from the front left and right channels and the Atmos channels of your Dolby Atmos enabled home theater receiver to the RP-280FA towers, as well as connecting the center channel and surround speakers as usual.
