AV Rant #758: Soured on Separates

6/11/2021
Rob is WRONG. Apple TV 4K CAN output Atmos Music from Apple Music via HDMI. That information was clarified shortly after we recorded this episode: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT212182 . So when we get to J.R.’s questions about an hour and 20 minutes in, you can marvel at just how wrong Rob’s answer was! 00:00:00 – Intro & Listeners of […] The post AV Rant #758: Soured on Separates appeared first on AV Rant.
