There does not appear to be a way for me to select Atmos -- am I doing something incorrectly? Thanks in advance.
To get ready for April 14th, we just re-watched seasons 1 through 7 on Blu-ray. Although my current system is not Atmos capable, I discovered the default soundtrack on some Blu-ray GOT series discs is DD+. Atmos has to be selected from the Blu-ray disc audio menu. With my system, selecting Atmos resulted in Dolby TrueHD 7.1.
That's as good as it gets for my system.
Curiously, when I first purchased the GOT seasons 1-4 package on Blu-ray, the highest fidelity audio on that release was DTS HD Master, not Dolby. Don't recall if it was 5.1 or 7.1.
