"Our high-quality sound feature is not lossless, but it is perceptually transparent. That means that while the audio is compressed, it is indistinguishable from the original source. Based on internal listening tests, listening test results provided by Dolby, and scientific studies, we determined that for Dolby Digital Plus at and above 640 kbps, the audio coding quality is perceptually transparent. Beyond that, we would be sending you files that have a higher bitrate (and take up more bandwidth) without bringing any additional value to the listening experience."

I liked the way they described a lossy format as being "perceptually transparent" akin to perceptually "indistinguishable"... ;D ;D ;D

I'm use HDMI ARC from my LG 65C7 to my Yammy AVR. Even with Atmos programme on Netflix, my Yammy doesn't seem to be detecting Atmos signal. Is it because the LG does not send Atmos signal via the ARC to the Yammy for processing?

No prob with my C8 to display atmos on my avr. Better check again your setting.

I didn't feel any diff on NetFlix. Having said that I have noticed improvement of DD5.1 from Amazon Prime Video recently.

If the Netflix app you are using is on the TV, both the TV and AVR/Soundbar need to support eARC (enhanced ARC) to get Dolby Atmos.
