Bose Soundbar 700 - Dolby Atmos
Firstly, absolutely love my Soundbar 700, a fantastic device that delivers brilliant sound. I also own the Base 700 Unit too (Fantastic customer service as my original just totally stopped working and then got sent a new one with minimal fuss.) Now in the process of thinking of adding the Surround 700 speakers to complete the set up.
However, before I do. One quick question. There is a lot of articles around the disappointment of this system not having Dolby Atmos support. I read in a previous post that it could be added at a later date with software and hardware updates (Cable and I presume some extra speakers being added)
Given the cost of buying this system, part of why I did, was because it's been as future proofed as possible. Seems strange that this hasn't been included, is there a reason (technical or not) behind it? Does Atmos really add much more?
What is the major difference of 5.1 v Atmos? Buy adding the final surround 700 speakers to the set up will I notice a big difference? I know you can't disclose future product announcements, but given this is nearly a £2k set up all in, just be good to understand a bit further. Could Atmos be added through an update at a later point (With additional speakers being released to support?) Or actually within a normal size home would you not really notice the difference v the full Soundbar family?
