Dolby Atmos
« on: December 22, 2017, 08:23:58 AM »
If you have a newer Xbox, like an X or S, you can use Dolby Atmos either through a home theater receiver or much more economically through any headphones. I added a couple of up-firing speakers to my 5.1 and the sound is fantastic. Most new movies are mixed in Atmos and it does what it says on the tin. If you download the Atmos app you can buy an extension to allow it to work for headphones. $15 or so. It’s one of those things that you don’t quite get until you experience it yourself. Worth a look if you have the right box.

I’ve even heard that some fancy new TVs come with Atmos built in!
