Another forum member says the unreleased 5.1 mix of Fifth Dimension by the Byrds is available on Tidal FYI.
I don't see that in Atmos, but in "Master", which should mean stereo.

Yeah I only get stereo (On Tidal)?

In Tidal, it quietly appeared last week as a "Sony 360" title, with the 5.1 core embedded in the streaming file's MPEG-H innards. In Apple Music, a handful of Sony/BMG quads and 5.1s showed up as "Dolby Audio" titles a few days ago. (But not Fifth Dimension.) Hopefully there are more to come.

Ah, 360 on tidal (AFAIK) is only on ios and android, and unless you have certain sony headphones, all you get is really bad sounding stereo.

I was able to confirm that Blue Oyster Cult album does play in 5.1 for me from my Apple TV. Weirdly that Coldplay album still shows on my phone as Dolby Audio but not on Apple TV. I am wondering if the major new Apple OS releases on Monday will change all of this.
