Fire Stick 4K (Fire OS 6.2.7.1) - Updated. Installed TIDAL App and linked to my account with the provided code.

Location: Spain (It does not seem to matter, I hope)

The firestick cannot play Dolby Atmos. It appears briefly the message "Device cannot suppport Dolby Atmos" and Stereo is played. Really good sound, but only Stereo.

Firestick is Connected to Denon 8500, and can Play correctly Dolby Atmos from Amazon Prime Jack Ryan Series, for example.

I registered a support question to TIDAL tech support. Waiting for his answer.
Unfortunately the exact same experience in Canada with my Fire Cube, no problem with Netflix or Amazon Prime Atmos tracks, but still getting Stereo through the Tidal app. Sent a message to Tidal Tech support, fingers crossed...

Good luck. Have a 4K FireTV stick and a 4K AppleTV and can't get Tidal to play Atmos on either one. Apple goes to Dolby Surround and the Fire Stick says device not capable.

We are watching the dawn of Dolby Music streaming.

Amazon streams Dolby Atmos Music for gadgets (Amazon Echo Studio). This is some kind of stereo "virtualized" "binaural perhaps" to get some sffects. Not Yet True Dolby Atmos discrete multichannel, as we use to get from Bluray for the Home Cinema.

TIDAL has started to stream True Dolby Atmos, but the promised list of supported devices are not yet all operative. It seems it only works for Apple TV, and I dont't know if any other.
But the Dolby Atmos collection tracks from TIDAL are still too few with really good Atmos mixes, and many with not so good mixes that seem just upmixed versions from stereo, according to some users reviews.

There is a USA user reporting that with TIDAL App 2.26.1 running in Fire TV 4K, Dolby Atmos works. BUT, ther rest of the World we are seeing TIDAL 2.25.1 as the last version that does not support Dolby Atmos.

Just a matter of being patient. I hope this would be really "The Dawn" of Atmos streaming and also hope we would see later more better mixes in Atmos after the learning curve of the new "artists mixers" that still have to learn. As it seems, we are NOT getting the existing Bluray Atmos mixes just streamed.

FYI the first version of the Tidal client (app) version that supports Atmos on either the Amazon Firestick 4k or the Nvidia Shield TV is 2.26.1

So far I've seen exactly 1 report from a user in North America for the Firestick 4k getting this version pushed to their device.

I'm in Indiana and didn't get it for mine as of last night but haven't checked yet for an update this morning.

No users with a Nvidia Shield TV reported success with the 2.25.1 client

This morning it looks like the 2.26.1 Tidal client update is getting pushed to those devices. I just checked Google Play and got it for my Shield TV 2017.

Well wtf..... And I was hoping to run the Atmos through my nvidia shield as it shows compatible. I guess I might as well stick to Amazon music for now and see how things work out.

Yes, yes. Here in Spain too!

TIDAL update to 2.26.1 on Fire TV 4K and Dolby Atmos tracks working through Dolby Digital +

Volume level is lower than average. No problem, just increase the Master Volume control, but when changing to a stereo track you must lower the level again.

Sound and quality seem to be good enough, although first impression is that it sounds a little weaker compared with the Original Bluray (R.E.M. Automatic...).

Will see if it is worth to keep subscription after the 60 days trial, depending on the quantity and quality of the Atmos mixes.

Dolby Atmos in TIDAL working on my Shield 2015!

There is a note on info page/audio in Setup General of my Marantz : Offset info which I found is always changing (between -13 and -15dB), on a per track base! Never found. On the FireTv Stick 4K this info is not present.

Quality perceived is identical.

I'd say its more than a little weaker. I compared the Tidal version with a ripped MKV from the Bluray. So, in both cases I was playing from the Nvidia Shield. Something just doesn't seem right. ☹

Check this new release from Tidal: Deutsche Grammophon LISA BATIASHVILI City Lights.
It's surely superior to all the others I have been listening before. Maybe listening level is also higher than most others!
