Dolby Atmos Surround Decoding
Introduced in premier movie theaters in 2012, Dolby Atmos has become the de facto standard for enveloping and immersive motion picture sound, and features the ability to dramatically expand the dimensional sound experience through the use of multiple overhead loudspeakers that can be individually addressed, to allow pinpoint acoustical imaging at precise locations within the room. Since its introduction, Dolby Atmos has been embraced by award-winning directors, sound designers and soundtrack mixers, and many recent blockbuster movies feature soundtracks mastered in Dolby Atmos.
Now, Marantz brings the Dolby Atmos experience home, and the AV8802 features outputs that can be configured for 1 or 2 pairs of overhead speakers and/or add-on Dolby Atmos speaker modules.
