Netflix Is Adding “High-Quality Audio” to 5.1 & Dolby Atmos

Today Netflix announced that they are adding high-quality audio to 5.1 and Dolby Atmos audio.

“Today we’re excited to announce a new feature, high-quality audio, which takes our sound quality to another level. We gave it this straightforward name because it fits: high-quality audio delivers audio that sounds closer to what creators hear in the studio, so every little detail is captured for a richer, more intense experience. Additionally, if you have the bandwidth or device limitations, we’ve made the feature adaptive so that we will deliver the best possible audio to match your capabilities. This is similar to what we already do for video.” Netflix said in a statement on its website.

Here is what is changing:

  • 1: From 192 kbps (good) up to 640 kbps (great/perceptually transparent)
  • Dolby Atmos: From 448 kbps up to 768 kbps (Dolby Atmos is available for members subscribed to the Premium plan)

So, if you are a big audio fan, Netflix’s new high-quality audio is something you may want to try.
