With Dolby Atmos, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead. The format combines a channel-based audio bed with object-oriented sound to place and move specific effects around the room, creating a breathtakingly realistic and captivating sonic atmosphere.
Sound designers and artists are free to mix in a 3D space, steering effects through surround channels and adding a seamless overhead dimension with discrete height channels.
Additionally, a new Dolby surround up-mixer allows for your current channel-based content (that has not been mixed for Dolby Atmos) to be expanded to fill the flexible speaker layouts of a Dolby Atmos system.
Solid two-way bass reflex front speakers include 5" mid-range drivers and balanced-dome tweeters for energetic and accurate sound, and the top of the cabinets house the up-firing 3¼" cones for Dolby Atmos soundtracks, separately powered by the receiver's height channels. The center speaker's double 3¼" precision drivers and balanced-dome tweeter articulate dialog with richness and clarity, while a powerful 120 watt subwoofer drives a huge 10" cone for thunderous bass impact.
