WHAT IS DOLBY AT­MOS?

What Hi-Fi (UK) - - First Test -

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.
