I know this thread is been open for while and technology is moving and price is going down. I had to replace my 5.1 HT system which served me well for the past 7 years. Then I end up with the DENON Atmos enable reveiver (AVR-X2200W ) . I had the setup as 5.1.2 where the '2' stands for ceiling speaker. Since installing a ceiling speaker is not an option for me, so i opt for a pair of Atmos enabled reflection speaker (by Onkyo). What that does is to fire the sound up the ceiling and reflect the sound back to the listener to simulate the top speaker sound. And I decided to hooked up all the speakers with MA SP cables. The front (L/R) and Center with SP3, the surround (L/R)-9 meters Sp1 and the top (L/R) with SP2, and of cause SUB2 for the subwoofer. (yes, a total of 8 MA cables). Tell you the the ATMOS configuration gave me a whole new embedding experience, rainfalls from the ceiling, chopper flying on top of you and across. The new object-based (compare to traditional channel-base) sounding are stunning. The sound creator is able to create sound base on the objects of the movie rather than figuring out which channel should the sound be come out from. Results are more realistic. At certain scenes, my wife always hear sirens out from my window, which is actually coming from a the movie that is from far end of the scene. Check that out if it's time for your HT replacement as most new AVR model are equipped with ATMOS. BTW, the MA's HDMI cable is nice as well. Better pictures.
