Given the current somewhat "lethargic" state of immersive audio music creation|distribution, I can't help but think that Dolby (and competitor codec vendors) might be awaiting a hoped-for bump in immersive audio interest with the anticipated 2020|2021 roll out of ATSC 3.0 tv in US major markets. That should make the name of the Dolby AC-4 audio codec familiar to a much wider audience . . . and focusing only on immersive audio music creation|distribution using the more efficient Dolby AC-4 codec would likely reduce consumer confusion about Atmos vs. AC-4 choice...

Would be a shame if it was only for the club scene - most people probably wouldn't appreciate or even notice the positional sound (too many bodies absorbing sound, not enough sobriety). Many venues are also only setup for LR positional at most (e.g. Armin's Ping Pong track)

Great thread. I just ordered the Imagine Dragons Blu-Ray thanks to this.


I'm so amazed by Atmos. The only reason I tried it out is because my old receiver died and I replaced it. My old receiver was a 11.2 Denon and the Audyssey DSX front heights and rear surrounds were in close the same place Atmos wants ceiling speakers to be. I really didn't expect much...


...but I was so blown away, that after 1 day, I started a total teardown and rebuild of my home theater to get the speakers exactly where the Dolby white paper says they should be. It's interesting that back in the day, Dolby recommended putting surrounds up high, 3 or more feet above ear level for home theaters, which I did. Now I need to move them all down, which is a bit of work when all the wires are run in-wall!! Damn you Dolby!!! Heh Heh.



Can't wait, should be done in a week or two, the first thing I will try is the Imagine Dragons Atmos mix.

For music fans without height speakers, this will just be TrueHD 7.1 (or 5.1) music on BD . . . Didn't UMG already try to find a market for that a year or two ago...?!

If Universal's HFPA Blu-ray audio disc releases are anything to go by, they'll loose interest in Atmos releases pretty quickly

It was a free download straight from his website back when I got it but I can see they are now charging for it. I guess the early bird gets the (free) worm?
