My plan is to just fire up

I'm still not sorted on my 4k sources. Chromecast Ultra won't pass a TrueHD audio signal, and a Roku Ultra won't pass one either. So for the short term, I'll be choosing between HDR and Atmos, which F*^#[email protected]
sucks. I don't have any movies with a lossy Atmos or DTS:X track. Next choice will be nVidia Shield vs standalone UHD player. Not ready to build a new HTPC until they sort out their 4k/DRM/HDR issues.
Thats going to slow down my upgrade to a 128" 2.35:1 screen. Was hoping to get away with a $50 4k / hi res audio solution rather than $500.
Anyone else make a decision to pull the trigger yet?
I've got a Sheild in my living room. Certainly not Atmos on Netflix, may do via Kodi though... I've got a panasonic 420 in my cinema, which is a mini 820 and about the best cheap option if there's a US equivalent. Small format but same chipset apart from Dolby Vision which is redundant for projectors.
UHD, Netflix and Prime atmos
