    Echo Studio with Fire TV Cube 1st Gen or 2nd Gen, Fire TV Stick 4K, or Fire TV (3rd Gen) You cannot listen to Dolby Atmos Music on TIDAL directly on your Echo Studio(s); it has to be connected to your Fire TV device.

    • Connect your Fire TV and Echo devices (s) to the same network and Amazon account.
    • In the Alexa app, tap on the Devices icon on the lower right-hand side and then tap the “+” icon on the upper right-hand side.
    • Tap “Set Up Audio System” from the popup and tap “Home Cinema” on the next screen.
    • Select your Fire TV device and then “Next” to name your new Home Theatre system.
    • Select the Echo devices you would like to use as speakers – you can set-up up to two speakers, plus an optional Echo Sub.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions. Once you enable your speaker system, manage your Home Theatre settings on your Fire TV.

    Important to note:

    When a device and/or connected playback system is not Dolby Atmos enabled, TIDAL will recognize this, and the stereo version of the track will be played. The listener will be notified with an in-app notification.

    When switching between Dolby Atmos and stereo, the TV, AVR or soundbar has to reconfigure its audio system for the new format. This can cause a small interruption in audio output at the start of a new track.
