Dolby Atmos vs DTS:X

Dolby Atmos What is it?

Dolby Atmos delivers multidimensional sound by placing audio objects in a 3D space, allowing sound to move freely around you. It provides a truly immersive audio experience.

DTS:X - What is it?

DTS:X is another immersive audio format that competes with Dolby Atmos. It also offers multidimensional sound, giving you a cinematic feel at home.


Check your equipment! Not all AV receivers and speakers support both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Ensure compatibility for the best experience.

Audio Object Count

Dolby Atmos supports up to 128 audio objects, while DTS:X can handle up to 32. More objects mean more precise audio placement.

Studio and Content Support

Dolby Atmos is widely adopted in cinemas and streaming platforms, offering a vast library of content. DTS:X is growing but has a smaller content library.

Audio Quality

Both technologies offer exceptional audio quality, but some audiophiles claim differences in the way they handle audio. Personal preference matters!

Installation Complexity

Setting up Dolby Atmos can be more complex, with overhead speakers or upward-firing modules. DTS:X offers a more flexible speaker placement.
