If any of you have Amazon Prime. It has a 4K HDR concert by Katie Mellua in Dolby Atmos,
I tried to get a 30 day free trial but end paying £19.99, Never mind , I manage to get it working with Apple TV after upgrading the Tidal App. had to turn volume up a bit but some music listen to was quite impressive on my 5.1.4 via Marantz SR7011. the Cakka Can Rufus track is very good from sol classic playlist. Could not get it working with Fire TV 4K stick or Nvdia Shield. i will explore different Genre of music and enjoy as much as i can. Hope Amazon music Hd follows.Just reached the end of my 5 month promotion from Tidal for £5, i have been unlucky with testing Dolby Atmos Music during that time. First my Android Phone died the same day the promotion started. Dolby Atmos Music was not supported on My Apple Phone, and I could not get to work on AppleTV 4K, Nvidia Shield 2017, And FireStick 4K. I tried all those devices today before the subscription stopped and non of them worked. I am glad you got it working. i will try and find another promotion and try again.
Going by what everyone else said on here. It seems like the app hasn't been updated by Tidal for these products yet.I'm at the end of my tether with this I have an Arcam Avr 390 and cannot get Atmos out of a 4k Fire TV or Nvidia shield for Tidal just get the device not capable message then stereo. Atmos works fine from these devices for Netflix etc and they are plugged into the AVR rather than using ARC. I've tried forcing through manual selection on both devices and have reinstalled both apps and checked firmwares so they are definitely updated. Any ideas?
Thanks sorry if I missed that. I thought the Apps for supported devices were all updated based on numerous articles. I'll see what happens in a week or so.Going by what everyone else said on here. It seems like the app hasn't been updated by Tidal for these products yet.
Not sure if it’s in the mastering, but that’s been my experience of multichannel SACD too. Blu-ray Audio on the other hand was amazing, particularly with DTS-MA.This will not take off, me personally find multi channel music distracting. I have listened to many SACD and never listen to them again.
Atmos is a non starter especially for the mass market.
I don't think you can beat multi channel 5.1 SACD & DVD-A's. I only have two Atmos music discs though, Hans Zimmer which is excellent & INXS "Kick" album, not so good !but this one shows just what can be done with Atmos and it's not like old 5.1 music tracks.
I love Katie Melua, unfortunately i don't have Amazon Prime, i assume this is exclusive to them ??If any of you have Amazon Prime. It has a 4K HDR concert by Katie Mellua in Dolby Atmos,
As said above, i've always found multi channel SACD / DVD-A's the best way to listento music & i've also collected Blu Ray Audio, which is excellent too.Not sure if it’s in the mastering, but that’s been my experience of multichannel SACD too. Blu-ray Audio on the other hand was amazing, particularly with DTS-MA.
I’ve got Rachmaninov piano concerto in DTS-MA on a Blu-ray Audio, and I have heard the same concerto live many times: it really does get close to the real thing, not just with the soundstage, which you would expect, but with a tonal balance that’s spot on: all the detail you could ever wish for, but without any harshness at all.
Beck’s Sea Change on Blu-ray Audio is awesome too and shows what can be done with the format if the sound mixer is a bit imaginative.
So if streaming Atmos can get close to or even better the experience, it’s really worth a try, especially if you have the necessary compatible equipment already.
My UK Fire stick 4k won't play Tidal Dolby Atmos - says device is not capable. I know it IS capable because, using the same stick, it plays Amazon's Jack Ryan's 4k HDR series perfectly well in Dolby Atmos! Device is plugged into Onkyo Dolby Atmos av. Anyone with any suggestions? Must be a Tidal problem?
Mines the same on apple tv, to give an idea usually play movies 25 to 30 on app tv but have to turn up to 40/45 just to get reasonable sound. Not blown away either. Its not night and dayI'm not thoroughly convinced by this. I'm now playing automatic for the people my REM in dolby atmos.....its ok but not blowing me away ( not sure what I was expecting tbh)
Plus my receiver has had to be turned right up ( almost fully up) hope I don't forget to turn it back down When I switch sources.
Luckily I don't have this problem with my oled... The apple tv goes to their fantastic Screensaver and then when it changes track a thumbnail pops up of what is now playing. It's very beautifulIf you are having to keep your tv on to listen to these tracks via Apple TV, simple solution switch off tv which results in music stopping then simply press the play/pause button on the Apple TV remote and playback resumes from where it stopped.
I also wasn't able to make it work with my HTPC & Denon 4200 but was able to get it working on Apple tv 4k.I currently have an Atmos setup on my Windows HTPC. Will Tidal play atmos on this setup yet?
Setup - HTPC - Denon 6300 receiver - 7.1.4 atmos.
