Can I add a roku Streambar but keep using my ultra instead of the built-in roku in the Streambar?

Sure, if the tv has enough hdmi inputs. Be sure the streambar is on the hdmi-arc, and if you don't want to see the streambar home screen don't use its remote. If connected right, the sound from any device connected to the tv should be heard through the streambar as well.

1. I am trying to compare the Streambar internal streamer with the Roku Ultra internal streamer, and cannot find a comparison between the two in streaming capability.

2. I thought that with the Streambar I would have much improved clarity of sound while still being able to use voice control and fastest streaming.  Also, since I do not have HDMI ARC, but do have a 2013 LG TV with Optical Digital Audio out, what am I missing out on by not having the ARC?

3. Again, clarity of voice sound is my most important concern (not base or music or surround sound, etc.)

Thanks!
