The article is a bit old now, but it's still worth mentioning that the Gravity Blu-Ray you linked to is not in Atmos, nor is it in 4K. The only version of Gravity with the Atmos soundtrack, to my knowledge, is the Special Edition, released back in 2015. It's impossible to buy today, although the Japanese 3D version may include the Atmos soundtrack....but at $115.77, I'm not willing to find out!

If you want a seriously good Atmos soundtrack attached to an OK movie that you can get on Blu Ray at a bargain price: The Man From U.N.C.L.E (2015)

Even the music in the opening titles lets you know you're in for something special for your system.

I’m sure I’m missing out as most of my Atmos experience has been through streaming titles. Also I have the up firing Atmos speakers. But I’m still going to say Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision aren’t delivering like I thought they would. I’m in the process of upgrading my entire system from new speakers to 4K Blu-ray player to new AVR. I’ve been reading about Auro 3-D and it’s more immersive sound . Even the format’s ability to play Atmos content which appeals to me. Any thoughts on the subject? The speaker placement makes way more sense to me in an Auro 3-D set up. And I don’t have to go loudspeaker crazy e.g 11.1 etc.

After trying a full Atmos system, I went with a simple 5.1.2 for myself. Admittedly in a small room but I found rear/side to be more distracting than immersive. To me, it made more sense to spend the budget on better LCR speakers than on rear/side/presence. After all, I want my attention on the screen. Maybe I'd want to be looking over my shoulder more often if I watched horror.

A *lot* of the immersion comes from getting your setup right. To me, if you work hard on your LR to get a really solid phantom centre you get the best results.
