Dolby Atmos on Polk MagniFi MAX SR

Hello Polk and Polk fans!

I was wondering greatly about Dolby Atmos...

First, does the Polk MagniFi MAX SR somewhat support Dolby Atmos in the way that it can receive the signal? Is it at least compatible?

And if not, can I use a receiver that is compatible with Dolby Atmos and send the signal back to the Polk MagniFi MAX SR and expect a slight difference in sound???

Thank you!

    Hello,
    The MagniFi Max SR doesn't support Dolby Atmos. I'm afraid I have no idea about your second question, but if a person already has a surround sound receiver with Dolby Atmos they should probably go ahead and add speakers to it and not need a soundbar.

    Thank you very much for your answer Kenneth!

    It is a bit disappointing though but I kinda expected that...

    It would be awesome if they would or could release an update to at least support it...

    I bet it sounds awesome with Dolby Atmos even without the extra speakers, a bit like the Sony Vertical Engine used on the HT-Z9F...

    If anyone tried a Dolby Atmos receiver with the soundbar and noticed a difference in sound, feel free to add to the conversation!!! I am extremely interested!!!

    Thank you again!

    To be honest with you I'd venture Polk is having enough of a challenge adding two wireless surrounds without causing connectivity and noise issues.

    I agree!

    That’s why I said COULD because to be also honest with you I don’t even know if it’s possible to add Dolby Atmos support through a firmware update...

    Looking forward to hear from someone who tried Dolby Atmos support with their receiver and hear a positive difference!!!
