> Rolling Stones & Dolby Atmos <

Recently listened to it in an Apple-Store via AirPods Max (over-ear headphones with noise-cancellation). Stones in Spatial Audio sounds not bad, it's like they're playing on stage in front of you. It's a nice add-on, included in the Apple Music subscription. But if you already have high-end headphones with a large (almost holographic) soundstage, then it's not necessarily needed.

I need to spend more time listening to the specific Stones ones you posted. But in general, I have a surround sound system with Dolby Atmos, and I prefer that vs. Dolby Atmos headphones. The effect that the music moves when you turn your head on Apple AirPods at first is kind of cool, but if you're listening to music on a walk and look around a lot, it gets kind of annoying and I tend to turn it off. The loudness level is much lower on headphone which is mostly a positive unless you really want to play something loud. But sitting in a room with the sound all around you is really cool. R.E.M. Automatic for the People, and I'm not even a huge R.E.M fan, sounds really amazing in Dolby Atmos. Apple Music has tons of Spatial Audio playlists. Some are like the Pink Floyd 5.1 SACD of Dark Side of the Moon - very well done and immersive. Some songs I think they just slapped the label on and didn't spend a lot of time on the Dolby Atmos mix it so the stereo version is superior. How would you rate the Stones in Dolby Atmos?

When I first listened to El Mocambo I was expecting the same mix as on Love You Live. I was a little disappointed but started to love the new release. When I listened to the Dolby Atoms version I found that it sounded much more "realistic" in a way. Broader and more alive. I really love it now.

How would you rate the Stones in Dolby Atmos?

I have a 5.1.2 setup and Tattoo You and Honk are the best, both absolutely overseen gems with surprising details and even newly recorded parts.

Hi Jobt, are you only expect positive reactions or is it oke if there are different opinions?

First off, JOBT, are these official releases you're talking about? I think I heard GHS in Dolby Atmos from the boxset in my local library. I have heard Electric Ladyland, and Abbey Road in Dolby Atmos and they were superb. Everything I've heard in Dolby Atmos is superior to previous mixes. But they aren't common, and I don't know any stand alone CDs that are in Dolby Atmos. You have to almost always buy an expensive boxset, with the Dolby Atmos CD being an extra.

I had the Tattoo You boxset and I don't remember there being a Dolby Atmos mix CD as part of it.

Like many technological advances...it's potentially great but it's a long learning curve to apply this stuff wisely and to get the best from it .

If you are trying to recreate a live string quartet in an intimate setting...the potential is mind boggling...but rock and popular music historically arrives via speakers in front of you, and a whole new set of production values and criteria may take a while to evolve.

[Edited to add...but this is from an old dinosaur who still mostly plays LPs.grinning smiley]

I know Dolby since when it was introduced. You ask for others’ opinion in public and I give - and confirm - my opinion: no dolby at all. You don’t agree? I couldn’t care less…

Anyone know if Dolby Atmos uses the same noise reduction as the original Dolby?

Dolby Atmos is a digital multi-channel (surround sound) audio format - not to be confused with the Dolby noise reduction from the times of magnetic tape.

That’s what I thought - thanks for confirming.

Why is this thread even here? This has nothing to do with the Stones. Looking for positive endorsements from world's largest Stones board for a product.

Really? Check out Stones' official [Twitter.com] , [Twitter.com] , [Twitter.com] . Or the BluRay in the 2020 GHS Super Deluxe Box.

I love to hear tape hiss on old records...and hear the faders moving up and down . [I'm a bit sad like that winking smiley]

I'm not discounting the technology, or advancement. And of course the Stones would/should be a part of it. Nor would I discount your (Irix) post.
But this is a post asking for input, and shutting down anyone, seasoned posters, who do not embrace it. Many of us here work in studios or sound, and may have some sort of qualified opinion.

Upthread we've got two poor souls, the one don't know what DA is, the other thinks DA is about NR. Come on, you can do a better research.
Even if you've been around for one hundred years, you can still be a IORR nobody.

I have heard all of them except Honk since Tidal does not carry it. I enjoy the Atmos releases and wish there was more of them in general.
