Not one to let Onkyo hog all the glory, Pioneer’s announced the availability of a Dolby Atmos firmware update for the following Elite receivers: SC-89, SC-87, and SC-85. All three of these receivers have Pioneer’s Class D3 amplification, HDMI 2.0 (4K/60P/4:4:4), and Roku Ready certification. Unfortunately, there aren’t many Dolby Atmos blu-ray discs available just yet. In fact, currently there’s only one; Transformers: Age of Extinction.


Pioneer’s dived head first into the Dolby Atmos pool. Not only are they including Atmos within their elite receivers, but they’re also offering a new line of Elite Dolby Atmos compatible speakers. Dolby Atmos may be the most exciting format to hit home theaters in years and we’re eager to find out of if it lives up to it’s potential.
