What about all subjects regarding sound? Latency, formats, bandwidth and other things I'm not thinking about.
I have found that some apps like Sling, Youtube, and Fubo just to name a few only stream in stereo so any other processing from an AV is kind of like the old dolby pro logic. Apps like HBO Max, Showtime, Netflix and Prime send an actual Dolby Digital Plus signal and have better sound overall. If you subscribe to HBO through Sling you miss out on true dolby digital.
Any digital out source whether its from the tv or straight from a streaming device provides good results. The only thing I miss about my cable provider was the better audio feed across the board.
Good info.. and makes enough sense I can even follow.
I plan to stay stereo but managing sub-woofers via digital might be beneficial. Although not sure how to do that as I would want to send the 2 ch signal through my favorite DAC, so the XO would need to happen before the DAC. Hmmm..??
Not really sure but if it's two channel from a DAC I would image the sub would have to be set up with a filter after the DAC but would probably still sound great. Getting a dedicated sub signal (.1) would probably require an AVR.
