Surround – Dolby Atmos
Dolby Atmos is a technology for surround sound. By utilizing ceiling-mounted speakers, the listener is given a dedicated rendition of sounds coming from above. Alternatively, reflection speakers may be used, which are commonly placed on top of the front speakers.
DTS:X is an object-based audio which creates better multi-dimensional sound. The audio track is coded to make each speaker better reflect the spacial position of the sound, giving a more lifelike sound experience.
DTS:X lets the user adjust only the voice track, making dialogue easily audible.
DTS-HD Master is a combined lossy/lossless audio codec, which enables bit for bit identical playback to the master track - hence the name. On devices which do not support high resolution, a lossy rendition of the track is utilized.
