How do you pronounce Atmos? Sounds silly, but I can't quite figure it out.

Thanks.

I have always heard it pronounced like the beginning of the word atmosphere.

Wayne was typing at the same time....

We've all struggle with the issue at some time, I still do. Many people pronounce it wrong, so I usually leave it up to them what we call it.

... or Slaithwaithe or Milngavie.

Don't know if it's right, but assume it's pronounced as Wayne and Pat did in posts above.

According the international phonetic alphabet :
[a t m o s],
from [ ʒ ɛ ʒ ə ʁ l ə k u l t ʁ ə ]

I think it depends on in which language, in German the s in Atmos would be spoken and I’m pretty sure same goes for French. I pronounced it like in the video, with a sharp s at the end.
