What is the best audio system for X1?

for the box and tv.

 

is Dolby digital best?

 

or bitstream ,pcm?

 

and what to set on the tv? I use PCM DTS neo 2.5

 

I have a Samsung 2.1 Soundbar with subwoofer.

 

I just wanna know if I have the best set up?

 

I don't care about the tv being louder just the best audio quality.

I set my a/v receiver for DD5.1 because that is what my X1 DVR can provide.  If your a/v receiver can upconvert the DD5.1 to something better, go for it.

the TV will probrably be 4k UHD now and a sound system that supports that 4k / UHD also needs HDCP 2.2 support on most if not all of its inputs. there are others on here that keep up to date on latest best features (like smart device linked TVs and audio systems).

https://www.cnet.com/news/hdcp-2-2-what-you-need-to-know/  also for more information about UHD/4k google HDCP 2.2 . the set top box will not deliver 4k UHD except over the required 'minimum' path that is HDCP 2.2 security level content protection.
