Support of Dolby Atmos Audio

I’m looking to find a low cost streaming device. I have looked at the Roku Streaming Stick 4K model 3820R and the Roku Streaming Stick 4K+ (plus) model 3821R. The online documentation lacks detail about the specific audio types it supports.

Before I purchase a Roku steaming device I want to make sure I buy the lowest cost Dolby Atmos streamer. I already have a Denon AVR that supports Atmos and I have height speakers already installed. I’m all set to play Atmos and just waiting for compatible streaming interface supporting Atmos.

Thanks for the inquiry.

I reviewed the products at the page you provided with the link.

According to the comparisons the only Roku product supporting Dolby Atmos is Roku Ultra.  No other product has Atmos listed, not even the sound bars. I’m thinking the information provided when doing a head-to-head comparison, is incorrect.

i suppose Roku may have dropped Armos for some reason.

Re: Support of Dolby Atmos Audio

Thank you for the link to the article.  I did pickup the Roku Streaming Stick 4K because I found it on sale for $25.  It’s on an old HDTV and it works great.  As an experiment, I put the Roku Stick on my Denon 3600 AVR and played Atmos content and the Denon fired up the Atmos codec.  

the old HDTV will one day be replaced and I will get a new TV and sound bar supporting Atmos.  So thanks for the article explaining the Roku hidden feature of Dolby Atmos.
