Is living with Dolby Atmos worth the faff?


Re: Call me a Luddite but...

Not so much lazy sound engineers, rather those who have a job pandering to the marketing department, an element of take the money and run....

Well engineered material, and the Pink Floyd track is a good example, is still available. Indeed, there are many fine programs and films with standard 5.1 surround that are brilliant. However Dolby Atmos is never going to be for the average punter any more than a new wall size 4K screen will be.

However, this is not to say they won't be in the future but, like 3-D, it will never get off the ground when the only content is whizz-bang films or football. Sad really.
