Dolby Atmos: What is it?

Dolby Atmos transports you into the story with moving audio that flows all around you with breathtaking realism.

Dolby Atmos

Making its way from film sets and post-production suites all the way into living rooms, Dolby’s latest surround-sound technology has quickly become one of the most important technologies in home cinema.

Over the past few years, Dolby Atmos has firmly transitioned from the “future of home audio” to very much the here and now. That’s not only thanks to the surround-sound technology gaining traction in Hollywood but also its support throughout the chain that runs from content creation and hardware to device support.

What is Dolby Atmos and why should you consider integrating it into your home entertainment system?

Dolby Atoms is a new audio format capable of multichannel movie soundtracks; think of it as 3D sound in 3D virtual spaces such as your home. It was developed to bring three-dimensional effects to home theatre systems. Traditionally a home theatre would be either 5.1 or 7.1 channel surround sound setups that were capable of delivering sound around your room. However, they were not capable of delivery sound above you.

The overhead sound brought to life by Dolby Atmos extends the height of your system’s soundstage. Imagine hearing a helicopter flying overhead, with the traditional setups they would mimic this by playing the sound behind you, however with Dolby Atmos the sound is projected and delivered from above. This is the most realistic sound experience available to your home entertainment sound system.

What do I need?

You’ll need an AVR such as  Compact Audio Fidelity C6 LCR In-Ceiling Front Home Cinema and Dolby Atmos Speaker. This handles the necessary signal processing and rendering. Additionally, you will need ceiling speakers. Installing ceiling and in wall, speakers offer accurate overhead surround sound, for a new level of home theatre immersion. This is a great option if you are designing a new home theatre entertainment system, or want to upgrade to the best possible home audio listening experience.


Dolby Atmos transports you from ordinary auditory experiences into the extraordinary

Moves sound all around you – Rather than being constrained to channels, sounds can be precisely placed and moved in three-dimensional space. Adds an overhead dimension – A new sensation of height immerses you in the action, creating a full audio atmosphere and realistically depicting objects moving overhead. Produces breathtaking sound quality – Dolby Atmos renders everything from dialogue to quiet scenes to whirlwind action with astonishing clarity, richness, detail, and depth. Creates a powerfully moving entertainment experience – It all comes together in a sound that excites your senses and inspires your emotions to deliver the full impact of entertainment.

Compact Audio Fidelity C6 In-Ceiling Loudspeaker


Compact Audio In-Ceiling Fidelity C6 with Kevlar and Titanium Drivers

Introducing Compact Audio’s new range of integrated speakers, designed to offer the best possible full range sound from ceiling installation. The UK based audio design company is founded by a former London studio engineer. Who has a particularly keen ear for music reproduction!  In addition, Compact Audio are so confident in the Fidelity C6 in-ceiling loudspeaker, they are offering a 14-day money back guarantee if you are not 100% satisfied!

The Fidelity series bass drivers utilise Kevlar, a synthetic aramid fibre probably best known for its use in bulletproof vests. The mechanical properties of its strength and the ability to dissipate energy also make it the perfect speaker cone material. The results are a more constant dispersion pattern at all frequencies in its range with a clearer more natural tone.

Superior Sound

First of all, put simply, the Compact Audio Fidelity C6 is one of the most superior sounding ceiling speakers you will hear. It features a 6.5” Kevlar bass driver coupled with a 1” Titanium dome tweeter, tuned and engineered to deliver a full spectrum of detailed, exciting sound.

Furthermore, the bass driver incorporates a large 18oz magnet with an AVS voice coil, enabling controlled performance at increased volume levels. This assembly and it’s long thrown cone surround results in an excellent in-ceiling bass response.

As well as high-quality components for sound quality the speaker is designed to be as astatically pleasing as possible. The pure white magnetic grill is a trim-less design with micro-perforated holes and low profile.

Kevlar Cone Technology Kevlar Cone Fidelity C6

As with all of the Fidelity C6 series, the bass driver is made of Kevlar, a synthetic aramid fibre. The mechanical properties of its strength and the ability to dissipate energy make it the perfect speaker cone material. The results are a more constant dispersion pattern at all frequencies in its range, with a clearer more natural tone.

Titanium Dome Tweeter Titanium tweeter

The Fidelity C6 series features Titanium dome tweeters.  Most vital, Titanium is an incredibly light material that is twice as solid as Aluminum and also very impervious to erosion. These qualities make it an ideal material for a quick and responsive tweeter, delivering detailed clarity with a wide scattering design.

Quality Crossover Components Compact Audio Fidelity C6

Audio grade capacitors and coils are used in the crossover design to achieve the best possible transition between bass driver and tweeter. The components are linked to a front mounted +/-3db equalizer to compensate for the rooms HF response.

 Magnetic Mirco Grill Magnetic Mirco Grill

The micro-perforated grill is a frameless magnetic design, with only a 4mm profile.  The closely-knit fine holes and very thin edging result in an aesthetically pleasing design. To finish its aesthetical perfection,  the grill is finished in pure white, with the ability to be painted so it can match your decor preferences and interior design!
