Amazon's small Fire TV stick in the 4K version gains an interesting feature that makes it even more versatile. Thanks to the wireless connection, Fire TV 4K can transmit a stereo signal in 2.0 but also 2.1 or 1.1 mode with pairs of subwoofers to pairs of Echo Amazon speakers.
This mode supports Dolby Audio wireless while those who have purchased Echo Studio have the possibility of using Dolby Atmos both with single speaker and with double speaker (surely the most engaging version editor's note)
The new feature, in addition to offering an excellent alternative to reproduction through the TV speakers, also allows you to install, for example, a projector behind us and the wireless speakers in front, on the sides of the screen without passing long cables through the room.
