How to get Dolby Atmos from MacBook Pro 2020 to AV Receiver (Apple TV+)

QUOTE="stu D, post: 28234346, member: 81481"]
Ok. Got somewhere. Found some separate HDMI settings in the utility menu on the MacBook and when hooked up to the amp it allowed me to change the output from default 2 channel to 8 channel sound. Yet when you go to configure the speaker set up the only options are 5.1 , 1, 6.1 or 7.1.

Yet still no option for 5.1.2 or 7.1.2 Atmos?

So I managed to get PCM 5.1 out of the Mac into the amp, and then used DTS NeuralX to get the height channels to work. But again it’s not the proper Atmos.

Still No idea how to get Atmos out of the MacBook!!

Click to expand...


Hello Stuart,
we have nearly the same set up. MacBook Pro 2020 and RX V685 .
Same problem with Atmos ...
VLC or Kodi or DVDfab no Dolby Atmos .Even no Settings for that ...
I did not find the settings on the MacBook to change the Channels ... you were talking about
where can you See if the source is 2.1 or 5.1 PCM on the receiver?
best regards from Hamburg

Hi. Sorry only just checked this thread again and you may have already sorted this.

If you go to Utility or Launchpad. Then select ‘audio midi set up’ (picture of piano keys). Note this may be hidden in the ‘other’ folder.

Then this brings up a list of audio devices attached.
when you have attached your Mac to your Amp via hdmi cable, the Amp will appear in the left hand menu.
Click on the amp and this will open a menu with a drop down option to format the sound. Here you can select 8 Chanel sound. Then there’s another option ‘configure speakers’. Clicking on this then allows you to select your speaker set up , ie 5.1, 6.1, or 7.1.

For some reason my amp still doesn’t detect there’s an additional 2 atmos channels encoded in the 5.1 mix. My amp only shows the incoming 5.1 track and no additional height channels.

Still, I only rarely watch anything through the MacBook hooked up to the amp - it’s only really Apple TV as my Panny Tv doesn’t have the app.

interestingly I tried to want Disney plus today in the same way via the MacBook. As there is no dedicated App for this, I streamed a movie via the website and the audio only came through the front channels (even though the amp showed there was a signal from the rears, there was nothing there. Maybe disney plus doesn’t stream 5.1 via the box standard safari web site??

thanks.

How to listen to Dolby Atmos music on Apple devices

It's not been the clearest rollout of an Apple Music upgrade, but now you can listen to spatial audio with Dolby Atmos on all your Apple devices. Here's what you have to do, and what you get.

Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos is now available in Apple Music and you can play it directly on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV 4K. You can also listen over the original HomePod, but only if they are connected to Apple TV 4K.

There are several things to note. At launch, Apple says that around 20 million tracks are available with spatial audio, while the rest will follow by the end of the year.

Also, the current launch does not yet include spatial audio with dynamic head tracking. This is music that adjust as you turn your head, and it will reportedly come to Apple Music in the fall.

How to listen to Dolby Atmos on iOS

  1. Update iPhone to iOS 14.6, or iPad to iPadOS 14.6
  2. Open Settings, scroll down to Music
  3. Under the Audio section, look for Dolby Atmos
  4. Make sure it is set to either Automatic or Always On

You can turn Dolby Atmos off in this section too. However, if you have Apple headphones, the best setting is Automatic. With this on, your iPhone and iPad, plus AirPods Pro or other headphones, will switch to playing Dolby Atmos when available.

If you're using non-Apple headphones, they won't automatically get the signal to change when Dolby Atmos is available. So there your better option is to choose Always On.

The new setting for Dolby Atmos in iOS 14.6 and later

Headphones compatible with the Automatic setting on iOS

  • AirPods Pro, AirPods Max, with Spatial Audio on
  • AirPods
  • BeatsX, Beats Solo3 Wireless, Beats Studio 3, Powerbeats3 Wireless
  • Beats Flex, Powerbeats Pro, Beats Solo Pro

How to listen to Dolby Atmos on Mac

  1. Update to macOS Big Sur 11.4 or later
  2. Launch the Music app
  3. Choose the Music menu, then Preferences
  4. Click on Playback
  5. Choose Automatic for Dolby Atmos

As with iOS, you can also choose either Off, or Always On in this section. If you're listening on a Mac mini's internal speakers, though, you'll never know the difference.

Headphones and speakers compatible with the Automatic setting on macOS

  • AirPods, AirPods Pro, AirPods Max
  • BeatsX, Beats Solo 3 Wireless, Beats Studio3, Powerbeats 3 Wireless
  • Beats Flex, Powerbeats Pro, Beats Solo Pro
  • MacBook Pro (2018 or later), MacBook Air (2018 or later)
  • iMac (2020 or later)

How to listen to Dolby Atmos on Apple TV 4K

Apple TV 4K itself has no speakers, so you are dependent on wireless headphones, separate speakers, or your TV set. In any case, you must update the Apple TV 4K to tvOS 14.6.

Also, go to Settings on your Apple TV 4K. Scroll to Apps and select it, then choose Music. Next click on Dolby Atmos.

There's no "always on" option in this case, you can only choose to turn Dolby Atmos to Automatic or off.

Headphones and speakers compatible with Dolby Atmos on Apple TV 4K

To listen to Dolby Atmos from your Apple TV 4K, you must have one of the following:

  • Two original HomePods (not HomePod mini as yet)
  • A Dolby Atmos-compatible sound bar, AV receiver, or TV set
  • AirPods, AirPods Pro, AirPods Max
  • BeatsX, Beats Solo 3 Wireless, Beats Studio3, Powerbeats 3 Wireless
  • Beats Flex, Powerbeats Pro, Beats Solo Pro

You may still not hear Dolby Atmos

If your favorite track is available in Dolby Atmos, you still won't hear it if you've already downloaded the previous version. To force Apple Music to play the track in the new Dolby Atmos, when available, you have to delete the old download and redownload it.

You do have to take certain steps to make sure you're downloading the right version, however.

On your iPhone or iPad, you need to select Download in Dolby Atmos. It's in Settings, Music.

Similarly, on the Mac, you turn the same setting on. In this case you'll find it in the Music app's Preferences, General section.

If you still don't hear Dolby Atmos, turn it off

This is less a technical issue than a human one. If you are playing a track that says it's in Dolby Atmos and you have the right equipment, you may still find the difference too subtle to notice.

It is there, it is significant, but to appreciate it, try turning off spatial audio again. When you're listening over AirPods Pro, for example, you can quite quickly toggle spatial audio on and off.

You'll only do it a couple of times, though. Because even if you hadn't thought there was much difference when you first turned on Dolby Atmos, you'll vividly hear it when you go back.

Music you've cheerily listened to for years suddenly sounds a bit poorer. And the spatial audio with Dolby Atmos sounds better.

Apple Music and Dolby Atmos on a Mac

How to Use Spatial Audio With Dolby Atmos in Apple Music on a Mac

On May 17 Apple announced that Apple Music was bringing “industry-leading sound quality” to subscribers with the addition of Spatial Audio with support for Dolby Atmos. It’s here now and can be enjoyed on a Mac, iPhone, and iPad.


What is spatial audio and what does it cost?

Apple says spatial audio gives artists the opportunity to “create immersive audio experiences for their fans with true multidimensional sound and clarity.” The good news: spatial audio with support for Dolby Atmos and Lossless Audio (a form of compression that preserves all of the original data in a music file) is available to Apple Music subscribers at no additional cost. 

Dolby Atmos is a surround sound technology developed by Dolby Laboratories. It expands on existing surround sound systems by adding height channels, allowing sounds to be interpreted as three-dimensional objects.

If you subscribe to Apple Music, you can listen to select songs in spatial audio with Dolby Atmos. And listen on any headphones, the built-in speakers on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, and with Apple TV 4K.


How to listen to Dolby Atmos on your Mac

Here’s what you need to do in order to listen to Dolby Atmos on your Mac:

  1. Make sure your Mac is running macOS 11.4.
  2. Open the Apple Music app.
  3. In the menu bar, choose Music > Preferences.
  4. Click the Playback tab. 
  5. Choose Automatic, Always On, or turn Dolby Atmos Off.

If you choose Automatic (which I recommend), supported songs automatically play in Dolby Atmos when you’re listening with:

  • AirPods, AirPods Pro, or AirPods Max
  • BeatsX, Beats Solo3 Wireless, Beats Studio3, Powerbeats3 Wireless, Beats Flex, Powerbeats Pro, or Beats Solo Pro
  • The built-in speakers on a MacBook Pro (2018 model or later), MacBook Air (2018 model or later), or iMac (2020 model or later)

If you choose Always On, note that this option isn’t supported on all speakers. Supported songs will now play in Dolby Atmos instead of stereo. You’ll need to connect headphones or Dolby Atmos-supported speakers. 

Or you can simply turn off Dolby Atmos altogether.


What about HomePods connected to your Mac?

Can you listen in Dolby Atmos if you have HomePod or HomePod minis connected to your Mac? Nope. At least not now. Currently, HomePod speakers must be connected to your Apple TV 4K to play music in Dolby Atmos.


How can I see if a song is available in Dolby Atmos?

Play the song, then check for the Dolby Atmos badge in Now Playing. If every song on an album is available in Dolby Atmos, you’ll see the Dolby Atmos badge on the album’s detail page. Some songs are available in Dolby Atmos only on a particular version of an album.

Pro macbook dolby atmos

Apple’s new 16-inch MacBook Pro that began shipping today packs a lot of punch for a notebook (especially if you go overboard with build-to-order upgrades), but one feature stood out for me in particular — support for Dolby Atmos audio playback.

As per the official technical specifications for the 16-incher, it has “support for Dolby Atmos playback”. Apple does not clarify what that means, but an educate guess has it that the computer is now fast enough to take care of decoding and rendering Dolby Atmos sound.

But what precisely is Dolby Atmos and why you should care?

Developed by Dolby Laboratories, Dolby Atmos was introduced in June 2012 with the release of Pixar’s animated film “Brave”. It’s basically surround sound turned up to 360 degrees. Unlike the traditional surround sound technologies, Dolby Atmos treats each sound as a virtual object that can be positioned anywhere in a three-dimensional space.

Supporting up to 128 audio tracks, Dolby Atmos sound includes associated audio description metadata for dynamic rendering to speakers based on a target device’s capabilities. Each audio track can be assigned to a different audio channel or to a virtual audio object, resulting in a spatial experience that sends sound around and above you with pinpoint precision.

But just because Apple’s new notebook supports Dolby Atmos playback doesn’t mean you’ll get fully immersed in three-dimensional audio. For that, you’ll need something like an Apple TV 4K paired with a Dolby Atmos–compatible sound system connected to a bunch of speakers.

Other Apple devices that support Dolby Atmos include the Apple TV 4K and the latest iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max smartphone models. However, Dolby Atmos on the Apple TV 4K and the latest iPhones simply passes the signal to an external receiver to be decoded while the new MacBook Pro actually decodes Dolby Atmos signal via its fast chips and renders sound to its six-speaker system.

Apple’s press release states that the new speaker setup offers high-fidelity sound:

New Apple-patented force-canceling woofers use dual opposed speaker drivers to reduce unwanted vibrations that distort sound. As a result, music sounds more clear and natural than ever before and the bass can go half an octave deeper.

And this from the new MacBook Pro product page:

MacBook Pro has a big voice. The six-speaker sound system produces room-filling wide stereo sound like you’ve never heard from a notebook before.

For those wondering, no other device from Apple aside from the new MacBook Pro, the Apple TV 4K and the latest iPhones offers support for Dolby Atmos audio playback.

Are you excited for Dolby Atmos support on the 16-inch MacBook Pro.
