Keep in mind there's no bitstreaming of uncompressed audio and no Dolby Atmos decoding (funny, since that's a "requirement" of 4k blu-ray spec).You can use PCM but you have to choose between Dolby and DTS and it converts everything - this is because the unit needs to be able to play Cortana and other system sounds. So you set your audio output universally and regardless of what you pick in the blu-ray menu you'll get whatever the system is downsampling to. If you just have a TV or a TV plus soundbar (hey, it's your trip, man), I wouldn't consider this a problem, but if you like your THX-certified Atmos/DTS:X/TrueHD/Master Audio/whatever, you're in for some disappointment.
