WHAT IS DOLBY ATMOS?
Dolby Atmos adds a whole new dimension to the traditional surround-sound experience by adding overhead sound to create a more immersive soundfield. This can be done by adding matching pairs of in-ceiling or upward-firing speakers.
The ideal layout for a home Atmos set-up is anything from 5.1.2 to 7.1.4 – that is, with five or seven surround speakers, one subwoofer, and either two or four Atmos speakers. Whichever combination you use, positioning is key to get that dome-like, enveloping sound. The Yamaha YSP-5600 does away with all of this, of course.
