My current setup:

LG C7 OLED TV

Denton X4400H receiver

2 Klipsch RP-280FA towers

Klipsch 450C center

Klipsch R-12SWi wireless subwoofer

I want to add rear bookshelf surround speakers, preferably with Atmos upfiring speakers as well. I haven’t seen many options like that on the internet, except for the Pioneer Elite SP-EBS73 Dolby Atmos-enabled Andrew Jones Bookshelf Speakers. Reviews on Amazon seem positive (https://smile.amazon.com/Pioneer-SP-EBS73-Atmos-enabled-Bookshelf-Speakers/dp/B00MQEE4M8/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8) but for the $499 price I’d like to make sure. Does anyone have experience with these speakers? Or would anyone recommend something different?

They are 4 ohm speakers, which I think will work with my Denon X4400H, but can anyone confirm?

Finally, will I be better off with these compared to a cheaper, non-Atmos option like the Klipsch R-41M’s, which go for half the price?

I was looking around for a pair of bookshelves that i could use to fill a room with music and came across Pioneeer SP-EBS73-LR. I was planning to connect both pairs of binding posts on each speaker in series for an 8-ohm load with 280 watt peak power handling. Such that the atmos speaker is just a third coax driver pointed at the ceiling.

Also, i have a Crown cts4200 that has a max average power output of 180 watts into 8 ohm per channel.
I expect that by connecting the atmos speaker in series with the rest of its cabinet they will serve as multi directional bookshelves. Not for critical listening, but for just putting sound in as many places as possible while saving space.

Thoughts?

So this may be the wrong sub for this, as I’m not an audiophile and my usage will be at least 50% movies, but I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the KEF 100 vs. the Pioneer Elite SP-EBS73 designed by Andrew Jones (https://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-SP-EBS73-Atmos-enabled-Bookshelf-Speakers/dp/B00MQEE4M8).

I’d be using this without a center channel, with a sub (maybe an SVS PB-1000). The Q100 are cheaper, but the Pioneer would let me do Atmos on my flat 9′ ceilings. I’d be using the Pioneer as front-atmos speakers, not rears. I may either get cheap side surrounds, or no surrounds (a 2.1.2 Atmos configuration, which I’m not sure is even supported, and if it is, may not be worth it?).

Thanks.

Awesome thanks so much. Sorry I have another question. In regards to Pioneer Elite SP-EBS73 vs KEF Q100s, is the only difference better bass? Or are there other differences in their sound? You said in your article it was “a bit of toss-up” what do you mean by that. The pioneers are discounted on amazon right now by $250 just as the KEF’s are. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MQEE4M8/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1JZM8OIMVARDB&coliid=IBF2FV36KSYI9&psc=1
I had read that the Elac Uni-FI UB5 and the Pioneer’s sound quite similar: https://www.cnet.com/products/elac-uni-fi-ub5/2/

Thanks for the advice! Maybe it was the subwoofers I had heard about from SVS. I will look around a little more.

Originally, I had been between these Pioneers, which got a great review from Cnet and are Atmos enabled! And these B&W also with a great Cnet review.

If the purpose of the speakers will be 50% movies/TV and 50% music, what would you suggest? Should I look at any other speakers in particular?

Thanks for your help!
