    Atmos Music

    As long as you select an atmos bitstream out to your receiver it will decode automatically. Not all Atmos content is available on BRD or DVD. Some of it is only streamed like some of the Amazon Original programming. My X-Box has an Atmos encoder so ALL content I select can be encoded in Atmos...

    I meant BRD, Blue Ray Disc. The music Tidal and Amazon are offering in Atmos is fine and yes, the streamers are providing real, object based, Atmos content.

    Great question, as for a BRD Atmos mix some of them are underwhelming. Aquaman seemed like a normal DD mix with some height channel engagement during explosions. All of the Atmos files I stream turn on Atmos mode automatically. The "game changer" for me is that object based audio is hands down...

    Thanks for posting, I was thinking about getting a shield for streaming and now I'll take a pass. I have high hopes for the new X-Box coming in December and hope they don't drop the ball.

    I have the Kraftwerk 3D in Atmos and it is great, I can watch and listen in 3D and wish this was the rule not the exception. I have the Auro 3D version of the "Love" BRD by George McCrae which is nice. Big Band is one of my favorite genres and I'll get the Bernie Dresel BRD, thanks. Atmos got...

    I listened to Imagine Dragons and it sounds nice in Atmos but did not A/B it with the BRD.

    I did use the firestick to stream music, it works but it lacks the "presence" that the X-Box has. It does stream Atmos music from Tidal and Amazon but is a little bit dry sounding on my system. Yes, the Apple 4K is listed as one of the compatible devices for atmos music, if you have one fire it up.

    PS- I'll A/B a native Atmos mix of Smoke and Mirrors with the 2 channel using Dolby Atmos on the X-Box with someone who has no idea of the source and let you know what happens.

    While its nice that Dolby reached out I think that is a politically correct answer to please the record labels. Who would BUY music recorded in atmos if their upmixer does the same thing? I have Atmos music bluerays and can stream Atmos music from my firestick and am telling you, the X-Box Atmos...

    I think the difference between our configurations is the X-Box has bitstream, IDK if the soundcard on your PC can bitstream via HDMI

    Are you using a PC? If so is it connected via HDMI? In the X-Box it says Atmos is for HDMI only.

    Next select the source of your content. I selected Amazon Music and chose an album by Otis Redding. Hit play and then check the menu to see the signal and speaker configuration like below:
