Issue with Dolby Atmos for Headphone and Dolby Atmos movies

I have a few ultra hd movies that have dolby atmos track. The thing is: no media player on pc can decode dolby atmos and make it work with dolby atmos for headphone software. Instead of getting dolby atmos, all we can get is downmixed 7.1. The only media player that can output proper dolby atmos on headphone is Windows 10 Movies & TV app, but it can only decode Dolby Digital based Dolby Atmos, not TrueHD 7.1 based Dolby Atmos, and those movies only have TrueHD 7.1 based Dolby Atmos. Very disappointing. Any solution for this?

None besides the Smyth Realiser A16. You can get really excellent virtual 7.1 but Im of the opinion it takes very specific equipment to render it well enough to provide natural and lifelike externalization.
