Perhaps others will chime in, but I can’t think of anybody using the PS5 without issue through an AVR. Some with direct connections to a capable TV have issues as well. Normally, most will recommend connecting devices to the AVR and then video to the TV. But, Smart TV apps and the current HDMI 2.1 fiasco are changing things up a bit. If you plan on keeping a direct connection to the TV for everything, then anything out there with eARC will work for you. ARC will get you DD+\/atmos when streaming, but only eARC will get you lossless TrueHD\/atmos from discs. Can’t remember if any TV is passing DTS anymore. Tech these days...:rolleyes:\n\n\nPretty much spot on. Connecting all my devices to my TV but I am going to run out of ports I think! eARC has worked great as far as sound goes. But I figured getting something for the future would be nice just in case.\n\nWould you say the Yamahas produce quality sound at least? If I was to just go through the eARC route only?
