Anyone using HDMI switch connected to soundbar?
My Sony z9f has only 2 HDMI inputs

Looking for a HDMI switch that can support 4k/ARC/Dolby Amos/DTS-x/Dolby Vision/HDR/HDCP 2.2 n 18gbps

Any recommendations?

Was wondering if this will be on par or better than the Sony ST-5000 in terms of both music and movies.

Had a chance to listen to both, Samsung was better for movies as it had rear speakers

Get the SIIG HDMI switch, it supports all the necessary standards.

I am curious how a 3.1 soundbar is able to do atmos? Wouldn't it have to be at least 3.1.2? Sony website doesn't provide much information on this. Does the Z9F have upfiring speakers like Samsung N950?

however compare to the active subs used on the 7.2 configuration that doesn't support ATMOS...

In an ideal situation with walls in the right places .. maybe
In the average home.. well you may get some noise from the sides and maybe up top.
But most sound bar buyers aren’t the discerning audiophiles right ?
