Amp is a Denon AVR-X6300H with 7.2.4 speaker setup in place.. but..
I've never seen the word Atmos appear on my amp, which after all my efforts is... Very Disappointing, to say the least
Don't get me wrong it looks and sounds really good and I have seen other things like TrueHD and/or DTS but why do I need to buy another bleedin box to get Atmos?? What has Shield got that my HTPC doesn't?
BTW I read somewhere that the Chromecast Ultra does both Atmos and Dolby Vision but it sounds like a faff.... Anyone got this?
This is nuts!
So my setup: OLED 55 B6p which is my first problem... no support for Atmos via apps
Denon X6300H 7.1.2.....I have never seen Atmos on this unit nor could I ever see 3D Auro which you should be
able to see when cheating the setup (confirmed by Denon support).
He is something interesting. I bought and tried an Athem MRX 1120 that was able to take a DD+ signal and with a setting on receiver it would up convert and display atmos on display. I also had Atmos on display from VUDU app movie from Sony x700 UHD BRP which was DV and Atmos. I also saw a Marantz do the same from Netflix app on LG OLED...take a DD+ signal and display DD+/Atmos on display.
I was looking at a new OLED65C8P! My local AV dealer said that if I purchased a 2017 or newer LG OLED TV or 2018 Sony Brava using NETFLIX tv app that in theory with ARC I should be able to have Atmos playing on my Denon x6300. It sounds like you have this setup and it doesn't work. Another thing the AV dealer said was they never like, rely on the ARC. They recommend another source such as Oppo, Apple TV! This whole ATMOS, DV standards, devices, lossless blah blah blah is crap!
BTW I returned the Anthem MRX 1120 which I paid $2699 for with no tax! Yes it was a great deal but I didn't see much difference in sound from my 10 year old Pioneer Elite AVR.
I then purchased a Denon X6300H brand new for $1124, no tax and free shipping! Update firmware to include 3D Auro and eARC! But still no Atmos yet!
