If you are not familiar with Dolby Atmos let’s take a look at what this sound format is all about and how you can get it.
What is Dolby Atmos?
You may have seen Dolby Atmos branding on the front of a 4K TVs, home theater receiver or latest soundbar. Sound gurus’ Dolby Laboratories developed Atmos to offer an ‘immersive sound’ and ‘multidimensional experience’ for home theater – and is basically surround sound on steroids.
Atmos adds surround channels that come from overhead to any existing surround-sound set-up. Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers direct sound upward and reflect it off the ceiling to produce incredibly lifelike, overhead sound – so rain sounds like it is falling from above. It does this by giving each individual Atmos speaker multiple channels – including front, surround and ceiling-mounted height channels. By comparison Dolby Atmos has the ability to process up to 128 channels of sound, where with a typical 7.1 setup you get a maximum of 8 channels.
How do I get Dolby Atmos?
If you are wondering how to get the Dolby Atmos experience in your home theatre setup you have a few options:
- A Dolby Atmos-capable A/V receiver with Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers (with ceiling firing speakers)
- Dolby Atmos-enabled soundbar
- You can also add “Atmos modules” – small speakers which fire upwards – to your existing 5.1, 7.1 or 9.1 setup.
- You can also install ceiling speakers to create the Atmos effect.
