Well this will be the key to it all, I'm sure. How many more subscriptions will Tidal get because of this and I'm sure they keep track of what everyone listens to. Will there be enough of an audience for their Atmos offerings that they continue it?You would think at some point they would release the albums on blu ray . Think that now the sales will be larger as more people are upgrading to Atmos due to Tidal.
I had a thought last night that made me feel better about the subscription price:The Kodi addon isn’t playing the Atmos tracks. I reported the problem to the addon developer.
I couldn’t find very many Atmos tracks either. Not enough to pay $23.99 per month (AUD) for an ongoing subscription, maybe In the future we’ll see a lot more, but now there’s not enough as I don’t listen to Tidal, this subscription would only be for the surround tracks.
I did but I couldn't really figure out if he's working for Dolby or Amazon or what. Somebody wants all this music mixed to Atmos and is paying to have it done. I don't think I heard the labels get mentioned at all except he said something about Capitol. But he said that in the same sentence as Abbey Road so maybe he was just talking about where the mixing was being done?Check out the Greg Penny thread. Looking at that I think the answer is the studio's.

Excellent response for both issues! Hopefully a resolution soon!This is what they emailed to me yesterday:
Thank you for your patience .
We are aware of the issue regarding Atmos songs streaming volume set is to -20 dB less, by default. We are working with Dolby to fix the issue and hopefully it should be resolved soon.
Regarding the sound cuts at the beginning of track-play, Can you please record it and send us the video so I can escalate it further up.
Man, I really want to put some overhead speakers up, but 1) I don't know how to do it and hide the wires and 2) my wife will kill me! Maybe I'll start with a Receiver upgrade and go from there....
I did a quick comparison of this a few days ago, here are my notes...
Atmos: the soundfield lights up with the chorus, good guitar and synth, I like the chorus just being all around, rather than limited to the surround in a 5.1 set up.
SACD: BASS, BASS, BASS...no comparison, the SACD wrecks the Atmos, it's tight and hits better. Elton's piano much clearer, I felt that his piano got lost in the Atmos. Guitar cleaner, clearer.
True and 320kbps is also approximately 20% of the equivalent of streaming full 44/16 redbook CD. I think that’s a significant reduction in sound quality.Assume you and everyone else knows the Atmos sent by Tidal is lossy. And they use the lowest bitrate allowed.
This isn't showing a file from Tidal but just an example of allowable bitrates.
So yeah it could sound way better.
ex 320 Kbps is worlds away from 128 Kbps MP3

Will the 2019 released Fire Stick support the Tidal ATMOS streaming? The Fire Stick will serve double duty as my 1080 set upstairs will no longer recognize my WiFi.
Is there any reason to upgrade to the 4K model? I do have a 4K screen in my main listening room, but that is a smart TV and already streaming via WiFi.
