Dolby Access


Novice Member
Hi I have downloaded Dolby Access paid for it and paired it to my DAC and samplers sound great, however when I come to play Atmos tracks on Tidal they do not sound like the samplers and I cant find a way to to get Tidal to play through the Dolby app. I have written to Tidal and Dobly but no relevant advice is forth coming.

Windows 10 PC
USB linked to
Oppo MP1 headphones with balanced cable

Why create something and make it so difficult to use?

Also I can see people wanting to hear Dodby Access atmos from their blu ray players but you can't at the moment take atmos sound from them to a PC to put through Dolby Access to our headphones

You didn't read this then:

Does Dolby Atmos work over headphones (e.g. headphones connected to your TV)?

No, you cannot get the Dolby Atmos experience on TIDAL using headphones connected to living room devices.

Listening to Dolby Atmos Music on TIDAL using headphones only works when connected to Dolby Atmos enabled Android smartphones and tablets today.
