Oh hell yeah. I can finally put my 11.4.2 surround sound to good use!!!!

Currently I only watch porn in full Atmos surround. It's not because I like the ambience, actually many times I turn it on and walk away. You see, we have a late 20s couple living next door and I don't want them to think that my wife and I are dead fish. In reality by the time wife and I get back from work, eat dinner and put the toddler to bed we only have enough energy to brush our teeth and pass out. But I digress
