“Sound has never sounded so good.”
Dolby Atmos is the latest advancement in home cinema sound, and believe us when we say it’s beyond thrilling. Movies and TV truly come alive, and it’s never been easier to get closer to the experience of the cinema in the comfort of your home.
The standard type of surround sound system that most people will be familiar with is a 5.1 set-up, which has three speakers at the front of the viewer (left, right and centre), two at the rear, and a subwoofer that’s dedicated to bass effects.
Dolby Atmos expands on this by adding additional speakers that fire downwards from the ceiling or upwards to bounce sound off the ceiling back down at the viewer to create a sense of height in the listening space. Instead of having sound simply surround you, you will now be fully enveloped in gorgeous, cinema-like sound, creating a truly immersive and realistic viewing experience – you’ll swear you’re inside the film itself!

It’s not just for big blockbusters either, although those films certainly sound incredible with the addition of fantastic overhead effects. With its ability to make the subtle sounds of a scene’s environment come alive in breathtaking realism, all content can benefit.
Those with limited space need not miss out – we also stock a range of Dolby Atmos-equipped TV soundbars that feature specifically designed speakers that fire upwards to deliver sound enhancements in smaller rooms too. As you can see, it's a highly flexible innovation.
