Question Denon AVR X1600H How to set up Atmos

Hi, just upgraded our home theater with a new Denon AVR X1600H which touts having Dolby Atmos capabilities. I've browsed through Denon's instructions and it is not clear how I would get the necessary channel content to drive two dual driver left and right surround speakers for the up directed Atmos audio content. The speakers I'm considering have a speaker connection for the front facing left and right surround channels and separate speaker terminals for the upward directed left and right ceiling bounced Atmos content.

The thing is where do I get the two additional channels for the upward directed speakers? This model has discrete output for 7.2 but nothing identified as Atmos. My desired setup is center, front L/R, side surround L/R with same speakers having up pointing drivers for Atmos L/R, and rear L/R.

I suspect the answer is related to assigning the second zone amp to the left and right preamp outputs on the AVR to drive the L/R side upward pointing speaker inputs. The Denon manual alludes to this in an example but unlike the speaker placement I have in mind.

Can someone confirm this is the way to go or am I missing something?

Thanks for any asset you can provide.

You would use the AVR's "Surround Back" left and right terminals for both your Atmos FDR and FDL speakers.
