That sounds just like a "stereo forever" guy talking about your 5 channel rig.
Their loss, and yours.

When the quality of "new", modern music produced today approaches the quality of the classics of my generation I may change my mind. Not before. I have another lifetime's worth of music in my library that would take years to listen to. If I don't spend another penny on another SACD it wouldn't bother me one iota. I have plenty of other interests to spend my hard earned retirement savings on. I don't need to support yet another format and upgrade yet more perfectly fine equipment. No thank you.

I am getting an old man yells at cloud vibe. Do you realize that Atmos can sound great on legacy setups, or have you ignored it so well, that you never bothered to understand this simple fact.

I was going to observe some releases that are indeed better than stuff from 1965, but damn that was a bumper year for great music so instead I'll simply state, people like what they like, why should anyone else be bothered by their preference?
I don't have ATMOS yet, simple room dynamics and cost, but I probably will get around to it after moving.

Indeed. Even in my own NAS collection, I have over a thousand folders (artists or classical composers). They end up being listed alphabetically, and getting to “Zombies” takes forever. Thinking about making a heirarchy of folders with just “A” etc, but that’ll take a lot of time that usually gets used for listening.
Check out Kodi. It doesn't have that issue.

Is what the old man yelled at the cloud stored in it?

What tiny percent of the people have the equipment and the know-how to play Atmos?

I saw an "Atmos soundbar" at Walmart. When I asked the audio salesman to demonstrate the Atmos for me, he didn't know how.

Why care about anyone at Walmart when it comes to Atmos or music in general?

This reminds me of the time back in the day when I was in a local audio store with my brother in law. He was looking to buy a new stereo receiver. The one he was looking at had a built in Dolby NR system for FM (a Marantz I think). He asked the salesman what it was for. The salesman replied it was to reduce the interference from low flying airplanes. No lie. Never went in there again.
