I've read a couple of reviews on amazon that said it converts dolby digital plus to dolby digital 5.1.
Please let us know if it works because I am interested in getting one for my Denon avr-591. Smiley Happy

Richeydog, only the Ultra model 4640 decodes DD+ to DD, That is not the current model Ultra, which is the 4660/4661 (same hardware, different headphones). If the Ultra you are looking at does not have an optical port, it's not the 4640.

Thanks for your response. I'm really not interested in buying a Roku Ultra. I was just wondering if the Fire TV Stick 4K had the ability to decode DD+ to DD. Smiley Happy

You're probably in the wrong forum to get an answer about that.  Smiley Very Happy

So just got the Roku Ultra and no go with the EAC, time to return it back to amazon. Really disappointed with the crappy devices from Roku.
I guess it was the newer one which removes the good features.
Firestick will be here tomorrow.

I''ll search for the 4660 version and check that too.

Did you get a chance to test the Fire TV Stick? Does it convert dolby digital+ to dolby digital 5.1?
