Connection: HDMI 1 ARC, HDMI 2, HDMI 3 ARC, Digital audio out, etc

Apple TV

Thanks a lot,

You mean

Apple TV HDMI Out -> TV HDMI 1 ARC
PS4 Slim -> HDMI 2
TV Digital audio out -> Soundbar HDMI In ARC

And I will get amazing higher-resolution audio, including the formats found on Blu-ray: Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio?

That soundbar supports DTS VirtualX not actual DTS-X. Not at all the same thing.
It doesn't seem to support lossless audio like Dolby TrueHD either so you would connect all your sources to the TV with HDMI. You could use the TV optical audio output but if you used HDMI-ARC to connect the soundbar and turned on CEC in the TV it might make using the soundbar simpler since the TV remote would turn it on and adjust the soundbar volume over the HDMI cable. The optical and ARC connections are equal in quality.

Thank you for your answers. Last question. In the box with soundbar Yamaha placed thin, super thin optical cable. I saw more solid cables. Should I buy another? Will the sound be better?

Hi.

Do you get DTS (red light in DD/DTS) with this configuration from Apple tv?
