its a wonderful cherished classic (etc etc) but wow can't they do something else that would actually work in Atmos!?

tbh i feel this way about most of the pre-70's stuff that's been done in Atmos, musically brilliant, Surround-wise, meh 🤷‍♀️
I know what you mean...Silverline all over again except in spacial audio vs. surround. It would seem that they HAVE to do something in Atmos because EVERYBODY is doing stuff in Atmos. The sound quality of the new stereo mix would be more of a draw for me. I have their Cast Your Fate to the Wind stereo SACD. It sounds really good upmixed with either Auro 3D or Dolby Surround. It's only a trio playing, so what more can they do with Atmos compared to a good upmix using these codecs?

I’m pretty happy with my KG/SH mastered AAA vinyl (33rpm edition I paid $50 for) - but I’ll probably still pick this up because I love the content so much.

Thanks for passing on the information @haikubass. TBH, I will have to wait for the reviews before spending $99.98 on this one. The music is a slam dunk, however, I’m not sure how much Dolby Atmos can add to tracks with such a limited number of instruments in the mix.
They'll probably do something like what Steve Genewick did with Kind of Blue, etc.--although this would also be a good candidate for stem separation treatment. I'm with Pup & @vegas, though: it'll be hard to beat the 5.1 "on-stage" mix that Monster did years ago.

A new release from Germany:

Dave McKendry - HumanBeingKind
RD: October 7th
CD+BD-V with both Dolby Atmos + Auro-3D
1664299581650.png

“HumanBeingKind” is the debut album by Irish singer-songwriter Dave McKendry.
The Deluxe Edition contains the album incl. bonus tracks on Pure Audio Blu-ray incl. music videos and an interview, as well as a CD audio.
The album reflects a journey of discovery, years in which the artist has traveled Europe, lived, loved and learned in the most diverse cities with the most diverse people. Dave McKendry processes these experiences and insights in his songs.

When he not only leaves his hometown of Belfast, but also abandons his ambitions as a musician, he sets out for a new life beyond the one he knows, packing his backpack and swinging on his bike to experience Europe, literally.

“HumanBeingKind” is a snapshot of the meeting of the man he once was with the man he is now!

Highly personal and disarmingly open and honest, the artist invites his listeners into his world with the promise to let them get as close to him as it gets!

Wanting to transfer this hustle and bustle into immersive dimensions as well was clear to Dave McKendry early on: “I write from the depths of my soul. I wanted the record to penetrate the depths of my listeners’ souls and meet them there. Immersive audio is, I was sure, the best way to do that.”

Atmos & Auro, pretty kool.
I only know a couple others that have been released that way.. I'll have to check him out on streaming to see if I enjoy the music enough to purchase the disc.
Thanks for the heads-up.

After repeated listening on Apple (5.0.4), I have to say the four tracks off the album (also available on individual singles) grew on me noticeably. The mix is well balanced, enveloping and discrete at the same time, with Dave’s vocals anchored in the centre. Nothing too spectacular going on, given the nature of the semi-acoustic material, but all speakers are involved and I believe not much difference could be done here mix-wise. Personally, I will probably wait and see if the rest of the album lives up to the quality of the singles and then most likely order. Anyway, my Denon AVR does Auro-3D and there is not enough releases I can throw on it...

(sorry for the Luddite enquiry)

how does one get 7.1.4 Atmos on a Blu-ray player? 🤔

i can only get mine to do 5.1.2 at the mo. 😭
Didn't think that the Blu-Ray player had anything to do with what Atmos format you could play? The player should bitstream the content on the disc via HDMI to the AVR for decoding in the Atmos setup you have.

Is it safe to assume that there is a steep decline of ATMOS music available on BluRay? This thread is pretty quiet?
