What is Dolby Atmos?
A three dimensional sound experience, putting you and your sofa into a fully immersive 360° bubble, effects flow around and above you, so your at the heart of the action. How do you create a Dolby Atmos system? Think of your traditional 5.1 or 7.1 system and add 2 or 4 additional height channel speakers. Ideally you add them into the ceiling or for a retro fit upgrade you can incorporate an upward firing speaker to bounce the sound from the front and rear end of the system to the main listening position.
We are able to demonstrate all of the Dolby Atmos speaker configurations to an exceptionally high standard:
Dolby Atmos Configurations:
‘Essential’ Experience – 7.1.2 and 5.1.2
‘Reference’ Experience – 7.1.4 and 5.1.4
‘Enhanced’ Experience – 9.1.2
At the heart of our Home Cinema you will find our favourite British brand Arcam. We have both the Arcam AVR 550 and AVR 850 receivers on permanent demonstration. These brand new AV receivers represent the best of the Dolby Atmos, single box, AV amplifiers available on the market today. These new Arcam AV receivers feature the professional grade Dirac Live room calibration facility. This advanced system calibration tool ensures you get the best possible sonic performance from your speaker package, tailoring the acoustics to suite your room. We offer a full Dirac installation with all Arcam AV receivers.
For the new height channels used in Dolby Atmos we have carefully selected in ceiling speakers from Origin Acoustics.
