There is a far amount here about Samsung 2019 Q900s and Atmos/Dolby+ I have been experimenting and with “Dolby Atmos Compatibly” checked I get Dolby+ from all Samsung apps except the Apple app. Now not getting DD+ frame the Apple app I can deal with it. All or most of the movies I have in the Apple ecosystem are available to me within VUDU and Amazon. I do not have Google play so cannot test it. What I found was interesting. Some of my content shows up as DA/DD+ differently depending on which platform. Example The Marvel movies are all ATMOS in VUDU but are NOT on Amazon. They are D 5.1 - another caveat is not all movies purchased in the Apple ecosystem show up in other services via Movies Anywhere. I also found Disney+ is all 5.1 via the Samsung app. I know it’s DD+ or Atmos by looking at the output via the Samsung Quick Settings - it shows the format being output. There are plenty of threads all around complaint the the 2019 Q900s do not output Atmos or DD+. This is not true with my own testing. For the ATV users including myself - you will not get Atmos or DD+ through ATV connected to the Q900. Apple outputs lossless and you need Earc (my understanding) - my experience is - nope does not work. I get 5.1.
Also get DD+ streaming Netflix and Amazon shows.
Lastly: The bass is fine for me on the ARC Music sound good and Movies are great. I am coming from a Playbar setup so that is my comparison - I also own a Samsung Q90 and sold it as I liked the playbar better I can say personally Like the ARC better as well
So, those are the rankings of a Samsung Q900 and SONOS ARC owner. Thanks for listening
