Dolby Atmos at home...


Introducing the All New Dolby Atmos.

Dolby Atmos is a new surrdound sound technology. In addition to playing back a standard 5.1 or 7.1 mix using loudspeakers grouped into arrays, the Atmos system can give each loudspeaker its own unique feed based on its exact location, thereby enabling many new front, surround, and even ceiling-mounted height channels for the precise panning of select sounds such as a helicopter or rain.


How Dolby Atmos works...

Dolby Atmos takes a unique and innovative layered approach to sound design.

A Dolby Atmos soundtrack starts with a base layer that consists largely of static ambient sounds, mixed using the familiar channel-based method. Layered on top of these are dynamic audio elements that can be positioned and moved precisely to correspond to the images onscreen.

Metadata records how these elements should behave during playback—behavior that best matches the director's intent, regardless of theatre configuration.This dual-layer approach gives film creators greater power and freedom while ensuring you have a consistent experience in any theatre.

Dolby Atmos Benefits

Dramatic Movie Going Experience
Dolby Atmos® goes far beyond surround sound to create a new level of realism for moviegoers. In a movie with Dolby Atmos, cinema sound moves around the theatre to match what you see on the screen. 

Always Reflects the Creator's Intent
Dolby Atmos give filmmakers full creative control over the placement and movement of sound around the audience. No matter the size of the theatre, you'll always see and hear the full realization of their creative visions 

Overhead Speakers for Added Realism 
Cinemas equipped for Dolby Atmos have overhead speakers that heighten the realism. Rain on a roof, airplanes taking off—you'll hear the sounds exactly where they would be in real life. 

Independantly Controlled Speakers
Theatres equipped for Dolby Atmos employ up to 64 independently controlled speakers. You'll hear extraordinary power and impact when the director calls for it. You'll also hear the most subtle details with amazing clarity. 


Technical Details

  • Object-oriented mixing layers the independent sound elements over channel-based audio content for clearer and more accurately positioned sound.
  • Descriptive metadata captures all the director's intent and provides customized playback for each cinema.
  • The mix automatically generates optimum soundtracks for theatres with 5.1- and 7.1-channel setups.
  • Support for up to 128 simultaneous and lossless audio elements in a mix delivers a rich, realistic sound experience.
  • Dolby Atmos scales easily to any size cinema, with up to 64 independent speaker outputs.

"Dolby Atmos provides the completely immersive sound experience that filmmakers like myself have long dreamed about."
Peter Jackson, Cowriter, Director, and Producer, 
The Hobbit trilogy

—Gilbert Lake, Park Road Post Production, Dolby Atmos Rerecording Mixer, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 

"For Oblivion, I chose Dolby Atmos for both its immersive quality and clarity of sound. Sound effects can be placed very accurately in almost any direction, pulling you deeper into the story."
—Joseph Kosinski, Director, Oblivion 

"Dolby Atmos offers a whole new range of creative possibilities for our team of artists creating the mix for Iron Man 3."
—David F. Alfonso, Owner, Todd-AO

Returns are easy and flexible. We will accept returned goods up to 90 days from purchase with the following restrictions as summarised below. For more details please read our Terms & Conditions of Sale, a link is shown at the bottom of the home page.

Changing your Mind
It's OK to change your mind but please be aware that all goods must be returned in as new, unused and re-saleable condition. This means that all packaging must be intact, all accessories are complete in their original wrappers and any free items are also returned with the goods. Essentially the product must be returned in the same condition as you would expect to receive a new unit in. In all cases the cost of returning the goods will be the customer's responsibility. All faulty items must be returned complete and will be repaired under the manufacturer's warranty.


How we Handle Returns
Depending on how long you have had the goods there are different options availble to you. In the case of faulty items, if the item fails due to a manufacturing fault between 1 and 28 days from delivery we will exchange it for a brand new one of the same model. Any items which are found faulty after 28 days from delivery will be repaired under the manufacturers warranty. For returns where you have changed your mind, please find our policy below:


This is were you return your item and we will exchange it for another item of equal or higher value. If the item you wish to change to is of higher value you only pay the difference. If the item is of a lower value we will issue you with a credit note for the difference which you can spend with us at a later date.

Credit Note
This is where you return your item and we issue you with a credit note which you can use against another purchase with us.

This is where you return your item and we issue a refund back to the same method you paid with. e.g. the same credit card. This is not available after 14 days, only exchange or credit note is available after 14 days.

25% Restocking Fee
If your item is returned to us between 29 and 90 days from delivery we will charge a restocking fee of 25% of the price you paid for the item initially. This will be deducted from the value of the exchange or credit note which is issued to you. This is because  technology in the AV marketplace moves fast, and as a result the value of items decrease very quickly.

Please note we do not accept returns after 90 days, except for repairs under warranty.
