Wilff, for the benefit of people like me who aren't familiar with what the heck is Dolby Atmos, can you explain how it would make the sound better than it otherwise would be?
I'm usually the one explain techno stuff to others. I just was asleep in class for this one.
Dolby Atmos is a surround sound technology developed by Dolby Laboratories. It expands on existing surround sound systems by adding height channels, allowing sounds to be interpreted as three-dimensional objects.
It helps to go backwards. First, we had stereo, good old left and right speakers. In my opinion, stereo sound, with or without a subwoofer is the best way to listen to music.
Next, we have 2.1 stereo. Same left and right speakers as above but we now have a subwoofer. A subwoofer produces 10% of bass frequencies, thus the .1 designation. A 2.1 system can be a soundbar with a subwoofer or a left and right speaker with a sub.
3.1 is a left and right speaker with a center speaker (for voices) Lots of times, a 3.1 system is a soundbar with a dedicated center speaker.
4.1 is a left and right speaker, subwoofer and two surround speakers (stereo)
5.1, which is most popular, is a left/right/center speaker a subwoofer and two rear speakers.
It's also commonly known as surround sound, with different levels of sound quality, Dolby Digital, DTS and others use a 5.1 setup.
Surround sound is sounds from left and right speakers, voices from the center speaker, bass from a subwoofer, and two rear surround speakers.
Dolby Atmos adds extra speakers that go in your ceiling or have speakers that point up on an angle and the sound bounces off your ceiling. For Dolby Atmos, you need Dolby Atmos speakers. For this track, here? Not really gonna do much in terms of fidelity, if anything. It's all fluff, in my opinion.
