*Recommended for Dolby Atmos * KEF Ci160QR
Although Dolby is not a manufacturer of physical speaker products, overhead (or in-ceiling) speakers are fundamental to a home cinema system configured to reproduce the Atmos surround sound format, and so we have created a section of speakers that give good results when used for this application.
In-depth information can be gained from Dolby's website here
You can also read a concise summary on our blog post here
If installing two speakers as Atmos channels then the speakers should be almost directly overhead and in this case any ceiling speaker with a reasonable sound dispersion can be used. However if this cannot be achieved, or if you are installing four Atmos speakers, then speakers with wide dispersion characteristics should be installed and it is these models which are featured here.

Controls & Adjustments
KEF’s patented ’sit anywhere’ Uni-Q driver array places the tweeter in the acoustic centre of the bass/midrange cone. This allows both woofer and tweeter to act as a single, focused source of sound that is dispersed widely and evenly throughout the room. The practical benefit is that great sound can be experienced from anywhere in the listening environment removing the ‘sweet spot’ effect.
KEF’s search for the definitive discreet Ci speaker has culminated in the new Ultra Thin Bezel designs, offering the slimmest possible visible rim around the speaker.
