Several posts back a discussion was going about having to choose between 4K/HDR or Atmos with streaming sources.
I currently have the B6, a Denon 5200, and a Chromecast Ultra.
I currently run with the Chromecast plugged into the TV (with optical audio out from TV to AVR) and I get 4K with HDR but no Atmos.
If I plugged the Chromecast into the AVR, I won't get 4K/HDR, but I could get Atmos.
I'm not looking to upgrade my AVR or TV at this time, so: What is the easiest cheapest way to resolved this issue?
I heard someone mention HDFury devices? Is that still what people use these days? Which one? Does it work flawlessly and without having to constantly fiddle with settings? When I looked into it a couple years ago it seemed iffy.
Would something cheaper like this ViewHD Extractor/Splitter[amazon]
work just a well?
Should I buy another streamer besides the Chromecast in order to get access to more sources with Atmos? And why doesn't someone make a streamer with two HDMI outputs (like virtually all disc players have)? Ugh, I should have bought an Oppo when I had the chance (with it's handy HDMI-in port).
Anyway, my goal is: I'm looking to get HDR and Atmos from as many streaming options as possible with minimal fiddling and minimal money expenditure (until the next system upgrade later on). Thanks.
