I am going to ask this question for all people that have a surround sound setup and I haven't seen an answer yet. Does the Xbox one S support hd audio passthrough? The S has a built-in 4k blu-ray player and part of the requirements to be a 4k player are to support hd audio signals like truehd and atmos. Does the Xbox finally support this or is it still just Bitstream? This will make the difference of me getting the console or not so I need to know. If it doesn't support the formats then how did the Xbox One S get certification to use a 4k blu-ray player. Please someone with a new system answer my question.

Here is a quote it's not good news for you

Unfortunately for audiophiles Microsoft confirmed that the Xbox One Sjust like the Xbox Onewont be able to bitstream HD audio codecs for Blu-rays such as 7.1 Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Atmos. This effectively limits the Xbox One Ss ability to provide a true 4K/UHD movie watching experience since it wont bitstream some of todays awesome new HD audio codecs. When it comes to properly bitstreamed Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Atmos these codecs can truly change the way you experience a movie from the comfort of your home, so the fact that the Xbox One S doesnt support them in a bitstreamed fashion is a bit of a bummer for the first game console to go all-in with 4K video support.
