That is interesting - so would that design approach make the R8 META less-than-optimal for a ceiling-mounted Atmos down-firing speaker? As exm notes, the marketing materials indicate a broader application for the speaker. Thanks!
The upward firing config is the most difficult to make work. Dolby's target spec does a decent job of throwing a fairly convincing height image above the listening zone. There's a slight compromise with on-wall surround or height usage as a result, but it still works well enough that we support this config. Especially as it's a very practical option for some listening rooms. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that the Spinorama isn't quite as good as the rest of the loudspeaker range.
