Home theater nerds, rejoice: Netflix is rolling out an upgrade to its streaming technology to incorporate high-quality studio sound that adjusts based on the speed of your internet connection, boosting the maximum bitrate of a 5.1 audio mix to 640 kbps and a Dolby Atmos mix to 768 kbps.

The update will start rolling out today, so get those speakers locked and loaded and throw on an episode of Stanger Things or Drive to Survive and take it all in. And for those looking to dive deep on the subject, check out the announcement video above.
