The good news is that any way you slice it, although we might be annoyed that Atmos plays lower in relative overall volume to other stuff, it's simply a matter of just turning the volume up.The DiagNorm is -18, which is 13 higher relative to -31 (zero offset), and the AVR applied an offset of -13.
I turned the "Loudness Management" setting "On" and "Off" on the Denon/Marantz AVR, but it has no effect on the volume and it still shows the same offset.
I always appreciate your glass-half-full spirit, Eric!The good news is that any way you slice it, although we might be annoyed that Atmos plays lower in relative overall volume to other stuff, it's simply a matter of just turning the volume up.
P.S. the dynamic range still remains the same (according to Dolby).
Have you tried turning off Autoplay on the desktop app, perhaps that would do the trick??I always appreciate your glass-half-full spirit, Eric!
I'll be the Gloomy Gus and counter that turning the volume up is the easy part. It's having to turn the volume down (at the end of an Atmos album or playlist, before Tidal's unquenchable Autoplay kicks in with something I didn't want to hear in the first place, at a deafening volume) that's the pain in the arse, made even worse by the fact that I tend to listen to surround music at louder than normal volumes, the better to appreciate the detail that a good surround mix often opens up.
If someone can tell me how to silence Autoplay on Tidal for Firestick once and for good, I'll stop complaining. I have a ticket in to Tidal, although based on past experience, my hopes aren't high. No answers on Reddit. I've made sure to open the settings on every other device on which I have Tidal loaded--laptops, desktop, Kindle Fire--and uncheck Autoplay. Yet it still kicks in on Tidal for Firestick. And the only setting you have access to on Tidal for Firestick, unfortunately, is "Streaming quality."
Yeah---turned it off on the web app, desktop app, Android app, Kindle Fire app...still doesn't seem to affect playback on the Firestick app.
(I assume that when she says "the TV app," she means not just Fire TV but also the Fire TV Stick.)Hello,
Thank you for reaching back out!
Autoplay on TIDAL in THE TV app is there by default, currently there is no way to disable it at the moment.
Changes made to settings on other platforms like desktop or mobile doesn't affect the TV app. I have forwarded this feedback to our product team. Our developers are looking to implement additional settings on the TV app and take this feedback into consideration.
Thanks for being a TIDAL member!
Agreed. This is one of the more imaginative Atmos mixes available on Tidal right now, IMO. I can't find any info about mixing credits, though.New album added today: MMXX-I by Diplo. Nice ambient music with a very good Atmos mix. After sampling Goats Head Soup, I wish it would have been mixed more on the style of this one. Diplo's is making really good use of all speakers
And sadly, the answer seems to be...no.Does anyone know if they've finally fixed the volume issue? I just now started playing the new Diplo album, MMXX, and to my surprise, it feels like I'm not having to jack the volume way up in order to hear it properly...
Edit: and at the end of the album, when Autoplay inexorably kicked in...the next track did not blow my ears or my speakers. So I guess this is progress? Now I have to go check out some of the older Atmos albums & tracks.
