5 Reasons Why Dolby Atmos Will Succeed
5. Atmos makes things easier behind the scenes.
4. Atmos is backwards compatible.
3. Atmos will appeal to niche market like DVD-A and SACD does for audiophiles.
2. Atmos enabled speakers.
1. Dolby is expending great effort to market Atmos while DTS is MIA at the moment.

You be the judge.

In theaters, it will be a winner. For home audio? It will not succeed.

This is because the home is not a theater. What next, putting curtains in front of your TV screen?

Too many gizmos, and their wiring, is for dedicated theaters at home and in public theaters, too. Not many homes are set up for that, and the benefit is too ephemeral. Some audiophiles or movie fanatics will go for it, certainly - but the number will be a small fraction of the general public.

I like the "Admit it, you've always wanted a speaker that looked like someone hot glued another speaker on top of it."

Yeah. It's not like there is a term called HOME THEATER or anything...
