So if one is NOT equipped for ATMOS, someone at APPLE was 'asleep at the controls.' Probably better to play the SURROUND in ATMOS fold down mode on most players.....for BEST results!Just heard the DTS 5.1 it is not in the same league as the ATMOS, they have to do 2 polls its not fair if someone is voting without hearing the Atmos. Even the stereo is garbage compressed to shit.
It's interesting, someone over at SHF had posted waveforms comparing the 5.1 DTS-HD and 7.1 TrueHD versions of "Wah Wah" - the 7.1 has the guitar intro coming entirely from the rear speakers, whereas it's positioned sort of half-way between front & rear on the dedicated 5.1 mix. I wonder if that has to do with how the Atmos object data is folded into the floor speakers, or if it was an intentional choice?Just heard the DTS 5.1 it is not in the same league as the ATMOS...
Oh jolly good show! That means I might be able to hear all the different audio mixes before then. The Atmos mix is stunning. I'm hearing details that I've never heard, previously buried in Phil Spector's orchestra pit.It’s being released August 6th
A poll will be up then
The 2001 remaster was horrible.I also did a quick check of the new CD stereo version of "My Sweet Lord" and "Let It Down" with the 2001 versions, using headphones. Much less compression, to my ears. I expect the tech savvy members on this forum with be able to confirm with graphic renderings.

I finally got my system back up and running yesterday afternoon. So my understanding of this ATMOS layer is that I can select it from the disc and my Oppo 205 will decode it as 7.1 Dolby True HD. So although I do not have ATMOS, the resulting 7.1 sound field should be more immersive than the DTS 5.1 layer. Yes?In a 7.1 mix channels 7 and 8 are the sides. 5 and 6 are the rears.

I just got a tracking number e-mail from them this morning, for the low price I'm happy to wait for the postal service to get it here in the time frame I paid for.I’m the best kind of jealous of everyone getting this so quickly! I normally wouldn’t post this but it may be handy as a data point for others who preordered from importCDs
I preordered from ImportCDs early on. Yesterday morning it was charged to my card but I still have no shipping alert. Shipping to Maryland is usually three days once I’m notified.
So glad my latest TIDAL trial doesn’t expire for a few weeks. Not as good an experience, as we all know, but I hope to be listening to the ATMOS tomorrow. Who knows. Will definitely download the stereo and listen to the mix on AirPods Pro — no spatial ATMOSy stuff but might play with spatial stereo while hiking. I’ll be eagerly reading people’s thoughts here, the only forum I’m (barely) active on.
For the Dolby Atmos mix, something at which Hicks excels, he says, "It's a really, really immersive mix. Probably the most immersive mix I've done." For the stereo guitar tracks, mentioned above, he placed those to the sides and the back, to provide a deeply immersive mix. "They're nicely balanced to begin with. So you constantly feel 'in it.'" He took advantage of the height of the Atmos volume, to place Harrison's vocal more within the space, giving a more intimate experience. And the Trident overdubs, with additional tracks of material, gave him yet more layers to play with, for songs such as "My Sweet Lord," with items like the multiple background vocals, strings and autoharp, and "Let It Down" and others.
I won't be ripping the stereo mixes - extreme DR compression :So I gather many here without Atmos will rip the 7.1 and create their own 5.1 mix?
