Not sure if this is right place to ask....thx for the indulgence...
I have a Marantz 6013 AVR that processes Atmos and a fire tv cube (2nd gen) connected via 4k HDMI to my reciever (not into tv). I have everything I need to stream doby atmos as well as a 7.1.4 setup and dedicated atmos speakers, but I do not have a 4k (yet).
After adjusting the settings on my fire cube and reciever and putting on a 4k (with atmos) title, I am unable to get anything on my Apps (prime and netflix) that tell me I'm listening to atmos, BUT....my reciever displays the option to select an auto signal titled "Dolby Atmos/DSur" among other options like stereo, DD+, Neuro X etc.
My question is...is that Dolby Atmos (the "Dolby Atmos/DSur" option? Or, is that something similar but different? It really goes back to whether or not I am required to have a 4KTV in order to hear Atmos if I am streaming atmos content with it connected into my reciever....I was hoping the video processing would output the 1080p while the audio processing still would output an atmos signal...but I don't know if that is how it works or if I am good. I'll do some more listening to confirm but thought one of you may have experience in this already.
