Dolby ATMOS Enabled Systems and Products

 

 

 

Fill the room with captivating sound.

When it comes to sound quality, one of the main differences between watching the game on TV and actually being there in the stadium when the crowd explodes with noise is the direction of the audio. With a standard audio setup the sound source is limited – it either comes from the TV or on a flat plane around you (in front, behind, and on either side with a typical surround sound system). Inside the stadium, though, the ear-splitting, thunderous roar of the crowd is everywhere, and you’re right in the middle of it.

This is the experience you’ll get with a Dolby Atmos-equipped sound system. This cutting-edge technology creates a complete sonic atmosphere of multi-dimensional sound, so the audio feels like it’s coming from every part of the room. With this type of completely immersive sound you’ll be able to pick up everything, from the thunder-crack of an explosion to a quiet whisper coming from the corner.

For a sound system to meet the Dolby Atmos standard it must include multiple speakers that not only sit around you but also perch above your head. These speakers should be able to reproduce the height plane of sound above you and can include dedicated overhead speakers or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers. This unique setup allows the state-of-the-art technology to move audio through every dimension. Whether you’re listening to an arrow whistling by overhead or feeling the rumble of a mighty river tumbling into a valley far below, your Dolby Atmos-equipped audio system will put you right in the middle of your entertainment.

 

Sound that really moves you.

Once you’ve installed a Dolby Atmos-compatible system you’ll enjoy clear, detailed, and exquisitely-nuanced audio with a broad range of sound that captures every subtlety and dimension. The audio will fill the entire room with incredible clarity, precise detail, and awe-inspiring power.

What really makes Dolby Atmos incredible, though, is how it makes you feel. The audio is so real, so all-encompassing, it helps create the illusion that you’re actually there. Dolby Atmos is designed to leverage the psychology and physics of sound to create a more gripping, emotional experience than any other audio system.

A movie that’s already exciting and dramatic becomes a lot more so when the soundscape flows around you and creates a profoundly moving experience. You’ll practically feel the rain soaking your clothes as it drenches the jungle all around you, and when the hidden warriors rise from cover to attack the fortress you’ll feel their war cries deep within your bones.

In real life, sound comes from all around. But conventional surround systems only allocate it horizontally – left, right, ahead and behind. What makes Dolby Atmos so staggeringly realistic is that the movement of every sound in the scene is reproduced in all three dimensions, including vertically. This creates a true 3D acoustic image of precisely located individual sounds that move in relation to you as if you were actually there. The effect is uncanny. Exhilarating. Sometimes scary, sometimes hilarious; always engrossing.

R50 Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers

Designed to sit above freestanding or wall-mounted home theatre satellite speakers, the new KEF R50 adds the all-important vertical sound dimension that allows you to enjoy at home the staggeringly realistic 3D sound image that Dolby Atmos creates in cinemas. Built around KEF’s latest and most sophisticated ‘sit anywhere’ Uni-Q driver array, with a 25mm (1-in.) vented aluminium tweeter at the centre of a potent 130mm (5.25-in.) bass/mid driver, it beams the sound upwards to envelope you in a breathtakingly precise multidimensional soundscape where each sound source moves as it does in real life.

The Denon AVR-X5200W and AVR-X4100W with Dolby Atmos® transports you from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience with captivating, multi-dimensional sound that fills your room with amazing richness and depth. Music, people and things come alive in breathtaking detail and flow in precise choreography all around you, making you feel like you are truly there. Welcome to a new world of sound that delivers the full impact of entertainment—it will move your mind, body, and soul like no other.

          

The new Marantz SR7009 receiver and the Marantz AV7702 pre-processor (preamp) will be the first Marantz products to feature Dolby Atmos. The SR7009 AV receiver is now available and the AV7702 will be available in October. Both Marantz Dolby Atmos receivers will deliver the multi-dimensional sound promised by the new Dolby Atmos technology. Dolby Atmos is designed to produce sound from all directions—even overhead. It also, unlike conventional surround formats, has the capability to produce point-source surround effects from any location within the room. This type of expandable DSP surround configuration is literally changing the way rerecording mixers are creating film soundtracks.

These new Marantz Dolby Atmos receivers have a whole new way of calibrating and reproducing Atmos-compatible soundtracks. For one, they have the processing power to run a 9 channel Dolby Atmos layout with Audyssey MultEQ XT32 calibration. This can be run in either a 5.1.4 or 7.1.2 configuration. Dolby Atmos configuration will utilize either ceiling mounted or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers. A 5.1.4 speaker configuration adds 4 overhead speakers to a traditional 5.1 speaker layout. Alternatively, a Dolby Atmos-enabled 7.1.2 speaker system is based on a 7.1 speaker layout, but with 2 overhead (or Dolby Atmos-enabled) speakers.
