Dolby Atmos home theatre system is the latest trend in getting the realistic immersive cinema experience at home. With so many people buying these Atmos Soundbars and Atmos Home Theatre Setups, the only struggle that we all face is to find a content that delivers one of the best output to test our home theatre systems.
The best way to do so, will always be through uncompressed input sources like atmos bluray player with original atmos bluray disc or a media player with hard drive that has lossless atmos codecs. But this still seem to be a distant dream as everyone cannot keep buying these movie discs or ripped files. And the only resort that one has to test their home theatre or to flaunt t it among the friends & relatives, is the OTT streaming apps that have got (compressed) atmos content.
But let me remind you; to get this epic Atmos experience you must keep 3 things in mind. First, is you need to have Atmos Home Theatre (source to output). Then you need to have a fast internet connection (around 20-50 mbps minimum). And lastly, you need to have active OTT subscriptions to these streaming applications.
So here's my top list of 5 scenes to test Dolby Atmos Sound in your Home Theatre -
