Good quality audio really gives an immersive experience to the user in any good quality audio setup, but why are there so many universal standards and what exactly is the difference?
Well, back in the day you would normally have two audio standards, that of mono and stereo channels which mean if you are running a mono setup you would have one channel and each speaker you might have will play the exact same frequencies and data. However, if you were to upgrade to a dual-channel setup you would have a stereo system that allows for a left and right channel.
But then came along Dolby Digital 5.1 which was created to give a far better audio experience by proving a front right, front left, centre, rear right, subwoofer, and rear left audio channel which gives a surround sound effect.
Lastly, we have the best of the best with Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 that gives a front right, front left, front centre, left centre, right centre, rear left rear right, subwoofer, upper front right, upper front left, upper rear left and upper rear right audio channel that provides a 3D immersive audio experience.
