Which homeowner are we talking about? What do they consider "good"? How do you get Atmos without an AVR? Can nest address security for a 20000 sqft house? What exactly is the point of a smart TV? Slower (compared to appletv or roku) access to apps?
This is just more X10 vs Lutron debate from years ago. Some people are happy getting all their home automation gear from home depot some are not.
Agreed, but devil's advocate how many 20k homes are there?
In my experience fewer homes even need an AVR - and even fewer have/know what Atmos is or are willing to pay for it.
It is the AVR and video distribution systems that complicates the job. As an audiophile and surround sound fan I get it. But more and more users are OK w/o surround sound and don't need a video distribution system.
