Dolby Atmos – the new surround sound

Maybe you have, or maybe you haven’t heard of Dolby Laboratories new surround sound processing called Dolby Atmos. Dolby Atmos claims to transport you into the story with moving audio that flows all around you with breathtaking realism. By using using a surround sound setup that now includes either speakers mounted in your ceiling towards the middle of the room or speakers that are designed to reflect sound off of the ceiling, Dolby Atmos fully surround the listener. The surround speakers in front of you, beside you, behind you, and above you create a sound field that places the audio “object” wherever they want. This could be a bird flying around the room, or a helicopter flying over head, the sound now flows around the room.
I have personally experienced this technology and recommend it if you have the room for it. Dolby Atmos is the next step in full surround sound.
