In All Channel Stereo Mode, you basically just have a 2-channel signal. The Bass Management will re-route the Bass from the 2-channel signal to the subwoofer.

What does this mean? Are you comparing the Atmos track to the Dolby TrueHD track? If so, I don't see the comparison. Please explain. Thanks.
