Hey everyone, just wanted to post a quick note for those who may be looking for soundbars and 4k blu-ray players!
I just hooked up a Sonos Playbar and Samsung M9500 (went with the Samsung because it will transcode DTS to DD 5.1, so there aren't any issues with the Playbar). Just want to say setup was a breeze and there's absolutely no audio sync issues that I can see with any of my inputs.
Just for background, here's my setup:
1. PS4 Pro, Cable box, Roku, and M9500 all connected via HDMI to my tv (PS4 Pro and M9500 are in the Enhanced HDMI ports).
2. Optical going into a splitter (running one optical to Sennheiser HDR 175s, and one optical to the Playbar).
My only real issue is that I don't get sound to my headphones when I have things playing in DD 5.1, but it's easy enough on the M9500 to flip between PCM and DD 5.1 in the event I want to watch something while wearing my headphones.
Anyway, I was torn between the Playbar and Bose SoundTouch 300, but I'm very satisfied with the Playbar (so far...I have only had it for about 6 hours, haha). Will likely be buying Play ONEs for surround, but unfortunately can't really get the sub because I live in an apartment.
