My sound bar claims that it decodes various formats, including AAC.
Can the Vero 4K + “pass-through” AAC.
I have the Samsung HW-N950.
According to the specs it says:
AV Decoding Format
WAV = Yes
MP3 = Yes
OGG = Yes
FLAC = Yes
AAC = Yes
ALAC = Yes
AIFF = Yes
I have the HDMI going from the Vero to the Soundbar then from the Soundbar to the TV.
Everything Dolby and DTS passes through just fine and most of my rips I do remuxes so it’s mostly TrueHD Atmos and DTS-HD MA, but I have an old rip I did of James and the Giant Peach for my children where I compressed it to AAC 5.1 for some reason.
I put it on for my children and it only sounded like 2.0.
I can obviously have the Vero transcode it to DD 5.1 but I was curious about non-Dolby and non-DTS pass-through possibilities.
