Does this work for anyone else in

I can only get mine to switch to the Atmos mix with AirPods Pro as the output device. As soon as I switch to my headphone amp, Music switches back to the stereo mix.
Figured it out somewhat.

In Music on Mac, Spatial Atmos mixes do play through my other headphones — but only through the Mac’s headphone port, not external DACs.

And most tracks in this Rock in Spatial Audio playlist… aren’t spatial.

Check for the Dolby logo as pictured here:
As to the actual sound quality and enjoyment of Atmos music mixes… I’ll get to that on @atpfm sometime.
