Looking through a list of titles on their site, I realized just how many Auro-3D titles I actually had in my collection. Pretty sure all will play the base 5.1 audio on my current system.
*I actually have some titles I haven't even got to play as of yet. Comments by others here would be great; who actually can play these titles, in partial to full system configuration.

I found this one that is set to come out on 09/23/2021 Tetragon Project "Oracles"; and sounds pretty good to me from this teaser:

The vast majority of titles there are on the 2L and Sono Luminus labels. I don't have all of them, but of those I do have, I can't think of a single one that doesn't also include a Dolby Atmos mix. I'd be curious to hear a good Auro-3D setup (with its awesomely named "Voice of God" speaker) someday, but not curious enough to shell out for one of the very few high-end AVRs still on the market that will handle Auro-3D. And at this point, it seems pretty clear that Dolby has won this particular format war anyway...

Have you heard the Hazar album?
Don’t have that one, but I did listen to the trailer. Paco De Lucia inspired apparently. I probably only own about a third of all those titles.

I agree with humprof, Auro-3D may be a flash in the pan; and now 360 Reality Audio is knocking at the door also, besides Atmos.
*oops just realized my thread header is misspelled!

I've got an Auro setup (Auro 9.1 played over 17.1 speakers (4 sets of arrayed side surrounds and two sets for surround/rear height. It also does 11.1.6 Atmos and DTS:X. I've found the extra arrays somehow make the recreated recording room sound vastly more real. I went from sounds kind of like a church with very realistic choir/organ on my new Norway Church hymnal albums to OMG, I've been transported by Scotty into a church! (with my eyes closed)

Sony can take a flying leap. I'm not buying a new AVR/AVP just to play some headphone format over speakers that's no better than Atmos. Those arses apparently want a repeat of Quad with a half dozen systems trying to take the market. Sony figures they can do a repeat of Bluray five years into the game! I hope they fail and fail hard.

Anyway, I've got several Auro music albums, including several Auro only ones.

Auro-3D Only

Diabolo (27 classical reference recordings)
Mando Diao - Aelita
Ayreheart - Barley Moon
George McCrae - Love
Bernie Dresel - Live N' Bernin
Spektral Quartet - Serious Business
Tiesto - Elements of Life
Lichtmond 3 - Days of Eternity
Both Demo Discs with dozens of tracks

I've also got 19 movies in Auro-3D.

Atmos & Auro

Himmelrand
Himmelborgen
Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band - The Gordian Knot

Atmos Only (Usually 5.1 and stereo too)

Yello - Point
Booka Shade - Galvany Street
Booka Shade - Dear Future Self
Steven Wilson - The Future Bites
John Williams - Live in Vienna
Hans Zimmer - Live in Prague
Schiller - Morgenstund
INXS - Kick

Might be forgetting some.

(Edit: Yeah, I did, like Kraftwerk 3D, their entire music catalogue in Dolby Atmos with 3D video from live concerts and the film footage as well in its entirety. Also Lichtmond IV - The Journey in Atmos).

Loreena McKennitt's The Visit should be on its way soon too.

I'm in the same boat....
I took a chance on the Tetragon release.

One of the people who run the site, Stefan Bock, is a good person to deal with.

I might reach out to him and see where we go....

I bought
Alessandro Quarta plays Astor Piazzolla


Unfortunately the mixes were very poor. Bass in rear left with nothing in rear right or overheads but ambience. Very unbalanced and a complete waste. I ripped the 7.1 track and rearranged my fav songs from the album. I presume mix engineer had never heard any surround before.

Traditional Celtic music, more or less (I'm not exactly an expert on it). It's more string based than another album I have (stereo) that is heavily accordion based (John Whelan - Celtic Crossroads). I really dug the John Whelan album. I haven't spent enough time with Ayreheart yet to draw a firm conclusion.

That's a Jim Anderson mix, if I'm not mistaken. He tends to go for immersive rather than discrete. An impeccable engineer & mixer.
