Hi Guys, I would like to purchase a Amazon Fire Stick 4K here in Singapore.
This is my setup:
Samsung Smart TV (2015) with Sonos playbar in living room
Samsung Smart TV (2015) with Sonos beam in master bedroom
I currently have NO problems running any of the videos on the Prime Video app and the Netflix app through my Sonos. However, I want to purchase the Amazon Fire Stick 4K for a more
“one-screen-see-all-apps” experience. And also because I would like to access Apple TV+ and DIsney+ for my kids.
Could someone PLEASE advice me on the following:
- Can I ditch my TV remote? I.e. Can the Amazon Fire Stick 4K remote control my SONOS speakers and TV, or would I still continue to operate this speakers and TV using the TV remote? I understand IR control would be required. Does the Amazon Fire Stick 4K have IR capabilities?
- Are there any issues with the routing of sound of apps run on the Fire Stick 4K through my Sonos speakers? I’ve seen some advice in a few threads regarding selecting Dolby Digital rather than Dolby Digital+. What is the difference? Will I be expecting to have problems playing sound through the Sonos speakers if I run apps / videos on the Fire STick 4K?
Would really appreciate ANY advice on the above. I would really like to purchase the stick asap so that my 2 year olds can enjoy Disney+ soon.
Thank you in advance.
