Dolby Atmos content
« on: January 13, 2020, 08:47:22 PM »
What is the best source for Dolby Atmos.

I have been streaming my Atmos content from Apple movies and Netflix. Will a Bluray disc be better (sonically)? If so what format (e.g. Dolby TrueHD?) must I look out for on the Bluray?

Thanks

4K uhd Blu-ray discs with native Atmos content are indeed sonically superior to streaming.
Few “standard” Blu-ray discs have Atmos soundtracks.

if a disc has an Atmos soundtrack then it will feature the Atmos logo at the back - if it doesnt state Atmos anywhere then it just has the core formats and it will simulate Atmos if you set up your AVR to do that

What player would I require as a start? Will Xbox One S work as a player  for Dolby Atmos?

Thanks

I would love to get my hands on one of those Atmos demo discs... been sitting with a new RX-A2080 for almost a year and have not yet played proper Atmos content on it.

If you go on Netflix and go to the search function and type "Atmos", it will list all of the Atmos titles available.

Thanks. I tried this and it worked.

Thought there was also another way. But thanks for the confirmation.

Correct. I am using Netflix on my Xbox One through a Denon 3400 AVR.

I am assuming that Atmos on You Tube will not decode through?
