Question Does the Amazon Fire 4K TV pass through HD audio?


Novice Member
Hey guys

I am looking at the new Amazon Fire TV media player (the 2015 4k version).

Can anyone tell me whether this will pass through TrueHD & DTSHD audio streams to a HD audio compatible AV receiver?

I would be using Kodi to play ripped blurays via my network.

My FireTV box definitely passes DD5.1, but the box has no settings that I can see for anything other than Dolby Digital Plus audio. That might be because the box isn't connected to a 4K panel, but I reckon that only DD audio is supported. As for pass-thru, no idea. May be a try it and see thing.
