I was wondering about the same thing. It seems weird that the Production suite isn't available on PC, when the mastering suite renderer runs on a dedicated PC.

TIDAL runs on the Apple TV and decodes to 7.1.4 (or on the Marantz 7.2.4!) and then I can listen to music and watch movies in Atmos in the studio. I'm not going to mince words- it sounds amazing and is so much fun. Lots more info about all the topics in this thread in the Atmos Professional Facebook group. AFAIK, the completely digital consumer Atmos systems are very expensive. I gave up on trying that, hence my D/A/D routing.
OK, thanks for the explanation!

Dolby has been asked that question a thousand times. The official word is something like 'there are no plans at this time for a Windows version of DAPS.' My guess is that it has something to do with the difficulty of building something like Dolby Audio Bridge in Windows, but I have no idea.

Ha! As usual, AVID treating windows as the bastard stepchild. I’d figure if they get constantly asked about windows compatibility they would do something about it. Oh well.

For the record, this decision was not Avid’s! All Dolby here...

Alan Sallabank's series on Pro Tools Expert is a great resource for PT and DAPS. Be aware that there are really three levels of Atmos:

DAPS - single CPU system for making home theater and music mixes

DAMS - multi-CPU system for more elaborate home theater mixes with the renderer (DAMS) on a dedicated Windows machine

DA Cinema - high-end, lease-only multi-CPU system and Windows renderer for mixing films in Atmos.

Not to be discouraging, but I don't recommend releasing anything that you haven't had the chance to hear in 7.1.4. Before I upgraded my studio to 7.1.4, I worked on music mixes with DAPS and then took them to a better-equipped room to finish them. Last November, I connected TIDAL to my rig. AMAZING. There are some great Atmos albums out there.
Just to say that the Home Theatre DAMS runs on a mac mini as well. That's the set up we have.

Right! I forgot that they allowed Mac DAMS systems. Thanks Garret.
