Terrible sound with native apps

Anyone else notice how bad the sound is while using the native apps over arc? I have the TCL 55R615 plugged into my yamaha receiver and using arc. Netflix, youtube, prime etc... all sound muddy and compressed. Maybe it's always been this way but I'm just now noticing. I was on the verge of looking for replacement speakers/avr when I thought I'd test another source just to be sure. I plugged my xbox directly into my yamaha and compared the same content from netflix on both. Wow!!!!!! what a difference it made. Sounds were crisp and dialogue was clear coming from the xbox. I would love to use the native apps, but not if the audio is this bad. I'm not sure it was this bad when I first started using it. Anyone else notice how bad arc is on these tvs and have you found a fix?
