HDMI Switch Audio


Well-known Member
I currently have my PS5 connected directly to my Samsung Q80t but my amp is an old Onkyo TX-SR507 which doesn't support ARC of any sort so I currently have my sound fed to the amp from the TV via optical.

What I've discovered is that any disc with a DTS soundtrack of any kind is always downmixed to PLII by my amp and I was wondering if the following scenario could work....

HDMI from PS5 connected to a HDMI Switch.
HDMI from Switch to TV.
HDMI from Switch to Amp.

Set the amp to output the HDMI connected to it and the TV to the input connected.

Would this give me lossless audio....?
