If you have an AV receiver capable of decoding Dolby Atmos that is feeding a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound package, it might be time to properly take advantage of its full skillset. Because until Sunday (3rd April), you can save $250 on a pair of Klipsch's Reference Dolby Atmos speakers at Best Buy.
These upward-firing 'add-on' speakers are designed to simply sit atop your front-channel speakers (and rear-channel ones too if you buy two pairs) to give your speaker package height channels – essentially, overhead sound effects.
Dolby Atmos technology represents the pinnacle of immersive home cinema today, and such speakers are designed to make it easy for owners of existing surround sound systems to benefit from it. So, with a saving of $250 to be had, why not take the plunge?
