    Default Sound bar for gaming ps4 with arc

    Hi guys I'm enjoying the hisense uhd hdr tvs and want to increase my audio enjoyment.

    I'm looking at soundbars and just want to hear everyone's opinion or experiences from the forum on their setup.

    My TV has both arc and optical inputs, since it's a smart TV I expect Bluetooth to be an option and wonder which will be the best options for setup aswell (arc Bluetooth or optical).

    Give me an apple and I'l cut it in half, give me an orange and I'l cut it in fours. But give him two fish and a few pieces of bread and he can feed a congress, now thats something.

    The best option would be to use none of them and input your PS4 to the sound bar directly.

    ARC only matters if your PS4 plugs into the TV and has audio limitations then.

    Bluetooth I wouldn’t recommend unless there is no other option.

    Iv got a ps4 slim so I doubt there's an optical out on it.

    Thats why I was thinking going.
    Ps4 to TV via HDmi and then from soundbar to TV either via arc HDmi(allows me to control volume via the TV) or optical.

    I found this soundbar on takealot aswell that seems to do it all on the cheap cheap.

    Who said anything about going optical?

    That unit has an HDMI input so I would recommend you connect the PS4 to that and then it to the TV with the ARC channel.

    Would be good to check that it is 4K and HDR compatible.
