Uses specially-produced Dolby Atmos surround tracks with on-screen 3D graphics
Designed by guitarist and immersive audio producer Jeff Perrin as a means to confirm the integrity of various surround systems while producing surround sound music tracks.
NOTE: Playback of test content on speakers requires an Apple TV (or similar AirPlay-compatible streaming device) connected to a Dolby Digital-compatible home theater system. Spatial audio support over headphones requires compatible iOS device with Dolby Atmos-compatible AirPods or Dolby Atmos-compatible headphones. When played back over an optical connection or non-Atmos devices, surround content will fold down to Dolby Digital 5.1 or stereo 2.0 format, depending on device capabilities. In all cases, a fast internet connection is highly recommend.
*Playback of Dolby Atmos content on non-Apple devices requires that the device supports multichannel audio (ie. Dolby Digital 5.1 or Atmos) over AirPlay 2. Please check your device specifications. Please try out the free included test tracks so as to ensure compatibility with your hardware before making any purchases.
- Fullscreen playback on iPad
- Improved compatibility with the latest Apple devices.
Ratings and Reviews
Not sure how to use this.
I love the idea that I can test my speaker for the correct surround sound. I just purchased the Apple TV 4K and wanted to be sure that the speakers were placed correctly. During the 5 speaker test all the speaker images were blue and the sound from each speaker was great. I spent the additional $.99 to get the center speaker test. This is the test that is confusing to me. There are three parts to this test. When I do the second part, which is the dialogue, the center speaker as well as the left and right speakers are red during that part of the test. There is a mention of phantom speakers. My confusion is that I do not know what a red speaker image means and what to do about it. And there is no manual or explanation.
So bottom line is that I really like being able to do this test. But there is no explanation as to what it means what to do if the speaker image is red. That is the only reason I gave it a four star.

Hello happydays58230! In the second Center Speaker test, the red color doesn’t necessarily mean anything is wrong, and actually indicates which speaker where you should hear the spoken dialogue coming from. I used a red speaker image in this particular test as the other speaker images are already colored blue to indicate that non-dialogue background noise is present in those speakers. So if you’re hearing the dialogue come out your center speaker when the center speaker image is colored red, then you’re all good! (In hindsight, maybe I should have had the surround speakers a different color and kept the active test speaker color blue...)
Thanks for your feedback. Much appreciated!
This is a great straightforward app for testing surround speakers and levels. I use it to collaborate my surround speakers and levels. Would you please consider an app update to test Atmos channels.
Wasn’t sure at first, now I’m positive!
Was looking everywhere for a test surround source and found this one. Downloaded from my iPhone and then activated the iPhone mirror function to my Apple TV and it worked perfectly! I really like the entertaining music riffs as opposed to sound signals to confirm the sound channels. Downloaded and purchased the sound ear candy app next, to my Apple TV after listening to a few samples. Turned out that purchase was well worth the investment! LOVE the surround sound arranged tracks! I would say “Rain” is my fav for a very relaxing ambiance and the pic goes great to enhance the ambient mood in the room, but they’re all pretty great! Already looking forward to the new tracks I hope are coming soon!
