Apple Tv - HDMI (ARC) sound quality vs Airplay (Bose 700)
Here is my setting: Bose 700 -> via ARC on my Samsung TV. Samsung TV -> Apple TV 4k.
When I am watching content from the Apple TV, I can hear an "ok" sound quality, nothing extraordinary, however if I switch the Apple TV and send the audio via AirPlay instead of HDMI I get a much cleaner sound, better bass, etc. Its day and night.
Wondering if there is something strange with the setup or config, as I'd expect the audio from both HDMI and AirPlay to be similar. Its a pain to switch the audio to AirPlay everytime. Any insights?
