5.1.2 Atmos Enabled 7.2-Channel Receivers - NO SPEAKERS

A 7.2-channel home theater receiver offers you the ultimate choice and flexibility. For smaller to medium size rooms with less square footage, you will likely get the most from your receiver's capabilities by setting up a 5.1.2 surround sound system to take advantage of three-dimensional Dolby Atmos [Video] and DTS:X [Video] elevation/height effects. If you are NOT prepared to cut or drill holes in -- and fish CL2 in-wall rated speaker wire from the back of your receiver up to -- your ceiling to (flush) mount speakers above your seating area (Overhead Speaker Placement), you should INSTEAD go with a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos enabled speaker system (Atmos-Enabled Speaker Placement) which bounces/reflects two height channels of audio off your ceiling. A larger/longer room with more square footage might be a better fit for a 7.1 home theater speaker system (7.1 Speaker Placement). 7.2-channel receivers allow the future connection of a second optional powered subwoofer for 5.2.2 or 7.2 surround.

Below is a list of 7.2-channel home theater receivers currently on the market. In addition to buying a surround sound receiver, you will need to separately choose, purchase, and properly set up your speaker system using decent quality speaker wire to run from the back of the receiver to each of seven surround speaker channels, a subwoofer cable to run from the back of the receiver to the sub, and perhaps some HDMI cable(s) to connect source components and your television or ultra short throw projector. Network-ready receivers will need an ethernet cable run from your network hub to the back of the receiver. And don't forget to leave adequate space around the top and sides of the receiver for proper heat dissipation.
