Do you need minimum 7.1 for it to work?
I have an Atmos receiver (Denon AVRS-920W), but my speaker setup is only hoopty 5.1



You need a minimum 7.1 reciever because you will have a base of 5.1 with the addition of two height speakers. It is written as "5.1.2" the .2 are the height speakers.
My last signature got erased, so I put this here instead.

Do you need special headphones to use Dolby Atmos? I have a old Turtle Beach PX5. It is like Dolby Digital 5.1 or something. So I assume Dolby Atmos wouldn’t work with that?

The headphone technology actually works best with a regular old pair of headphones. It even tells you to turn off any sound enhancement technology in other headphones so Atmos can work properly for your headphones. So your headphones are fine.

I have Atmos for Headphones. Best $15 spent by far.

Not yet. I heard there aren't any atmos headphones that released as of yet. If there was any can you link it please?

Great thing about Dolby Atmos for Headphones is you can use any pair of stereo headphones.

Try it with Overwatch.

Make sure to in-game settings and enable it.

FFXV also supports it. Activate it also. It's an option called location based audio or something like that.

I too am only using Atmos on a headset but I can definitely tell the difference.

Well I think I finally got my Turtle Beach PX5 to only use stereo sound, so I guess I can try Dolby Atmos. It wasn’t easy to get this headset to automatically use stereo. It uses some wireless receiver that does the Dolby Digital stuff. I had to change a setting on the headset to bypass Dolby Digital and I set the Xbox to output stereo sound over the optical audio output instead of bitstream. Also, I checked the box in the Xbox settings for “using HDMI or optical audio headset”

Maybe I'll hook the other speakers up and try it.

Overwatch Xbox doesn't have it yet. PC does.

In general, I think a lot of gamers overlook the impact of quality audio with a one-sided focus on graphics.
the bitter truth is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. - Anton Ego
