I did some tests with the introduction of Atmos and Lossless audio on Apple Music

  1.  Playing audio through Apple TV Music app → TV → Sonos Arc, you get:
Atmos on Sonos app
Atmos on Music app
  1. Playing audio through iOS Music app → Airplay → Sonos Arc, you get:
No Atmos but Lossless on Music app
Atmos and Lossless unknown on Sonos app
  1. Playing audio through iOS Sonos app → Sonos Arc, you get:
Atmos and Lossless unknown on Sonos app

Thanks for your post, did you have noticed any audible difference between airplay and through Sonos app?

In Sonos app stream seems to be lossy again, aac 256 k, while via airplay the stream must be lossless unsampling to 16 bit/44.

DOLBY Atmos is working for me from iOS Apple Music App to Sonos Arc, its display Dolby Atmos on my Apple TV App.
