RE: HDMI audio with Sony XBR 65 X850C

Posted by dbphd on September 30, 2022 at 02:53:19:

I have since learned that both ARC and optical are compressed, and that I need eARC to realize the audio potential of LS50 Wireless II. Further, the Sony 65 XBR is 1080. I plan to buy a 75" 4K Sony with eARC the day after Thanksgiving, i.e., Black Friday. Sources are Cox Cable, Oppo 205, and Roon for Qobuz and Tidal.
