D olbys latest surround sound format has become a standard feature of most new receivers with seven or more channels. Weve checked out several dierent Atmos demos by now, but since there are more movies with Atmos soundtracks available, we couldnt resist setting up another demo with an action-packed movie and some choice equipment. DOLBY DEMO DAY PUSHING DOLBY ATMOS TO NEW HEIGHTS BY DEIA Z. The movie For our in-house Atmos demo, we couldn't think of a better film than the one that took this year's Oscars for Sound Mixing and Sound Editing, Mad Max: Fury Road . It's got tons of dynamic sound effects and is perfect for putting any surround sound system through its paces. The setup We set up a ten-speaker Atmos system with Marantz's SR6010 7.2-channel receiver and a Pioneer Elite speaker system with Atmos enabled speakers. Since the Marantz can only power seven speakers, we added an NAD Masters Series power amp for the two front speakers.
