How do you all stream your content (with HD audio) to your TV

Hi,

I got a 75" qled 950TS hung on the wall, it looks great, the one downside I find is it doesn't support decoding of DTS, Atmos,... I have it connected to lyngdorf stereo amp. So I wonder how people stream their digital content to the tv. I have plex running on a synology, I know it can transcode audio, but I also like to use subtitles. With audio transcoding and subtitles enabled, plex wants to transcode the video also which with UHD content is not a good idea, or at least my equipment is not powerful enough. Just curious on people's experience. Was looking for a streamer that can decode audio but I think most just support passthrough..

cheers,
phil

after reading some more on specs of streamers I did found that they can downsample audio to stereo (e.g zappiti which I used before) :)

Apple TV (via Infuse app) and Shield TV allow down downsampling. I use both
