Well I don't know first hand, but I do find what this guy said in his review encouraging:
"Primary audio on the 4K disc is included in English Dolby Atmos, adapted from the theatrical mix. The reference level is set a little bit low, but the good news is that once you turn up the volume a bit, you’ve got a strong full range mix. This isn’t another of Disney’s typically audio-handicapped 4K releases.
Bass is solid, with good reinforcement from the low end. It’s not as deep, thunderous, and punchy as some other 4K Atmos mixes, to be sure, but it should be noted that Solo’s theatrical mix wasn’t that way either. None of the new era Star Wars mixes have featured especially thunderous bass, so this is accurate to the theatrical experience. The soundstage is nicely big, wide, and constantly active, with smooth, accurate positioning and movement. The height channels kick in often, especially in set pieces, including the train heist, the battle on Kessel, and especially during the Kessel Run in the Falcon
. John Williams’ new Han Solo theme sounds lovely, as does the rest of the score by John Powell"
I'm sure the version from the K store will be the same as what's on the Blu-Ray this time.
