ATMOS working with legacy Surround Sound Processor
Atmos-related discovery, which I think might effect some folks with Dolby-licensed sound kit.
Dolby Surround Sound Processor for Headphones: 2010 Turtle Beach Ear Force DSS
Blu-ray player: 2013 Sony BDP-S790
I played my first Atmos blu-ray (Mission Impossible: Fallout) through the prehistoric DSS and headphones,...and IT WORKS! The DSS unit positively indicates with its blue signal light that it recognizes incoming Dolby-encoded audio as incoming Dolby-encoded audio.
I wasn't expecting this. I thought I would have to tell the br player to go with LPCM, or else go get the DVD version.
Dolby must have added some tags to the Atmos business to allow legacy Dolby decoders to get some action. ??? I don't know exactly what's going on inside the litte box before, but I was very happy with the movie experience.
