Looking for practical experience with computer based Auro and/ or Dolby Atmos surround (more than 7.1 channels). Currently running AES3 into Genelec SAM based 5.1 surround system, see specs below. Looking for the most reasonably priced and easily operated solution while maintaining sound quality. NOT interested in disk spinners and hardware based surround processors unless absolutely necessary. I do like Thunderbolt for the speed and flexibility Questions / Considerations a) AES3 output options - another AFI-1, Lynx AES16 Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis or? Aware of the usual pro sound cards from Apogee, Lynx, DAD, Metric Halo etc. 12 channel minimum b) How do I get the Mac to address more than 7.1 channels. c) Sound files - What software will play more than 7.1 channels. d) Video files - What software will play more than 7.1 channels with the movie. e) Sound files - What software will extract more than 7.1 channels from a Bluray pure audio? f) Video files - What software will extract more than 7.1 channels with the movie from a Bluray? g) Dolby Atmos - Any software players that can decode this?
