    Yes, if you are looking for True Dolby/Lossless Audio and have sources to play such content like Bluray Discs or downloaded content then yes. If it's only OTT content, then it's mostly compressed audio anyway, so wouldn't make much of difference. Also note that You can get lossy Dolby Atmos too with the Q1 series even with HDMI ARC.

    Well, there's support for HDMI ARC. And then there's an option for signal processing as 'enhanced format' so I can't exactly confirm if that's what HDMI enhancedARC stands for....
    @Venky61 the AV expert, please enlighten us 😆

    Yes, ARC is firmware based and upgrading ARC to eARC can be possible, but I don't know if it will be possible

    Hi,
    The article is wrong. Q1 series doesn't support eARC. Initially when the product page was made it was mentioned as eARC by mistake on Oneplus site. Thus some articles quoted the same. But the TV only supports ARC and eARC won't be possible by software update as confirmed by the team. Any specific requirement for you to look for eARC?
    Thanks for the tag.

    Look, to be honest (completely honest) you won't find much difference between ARC and eARC if you use TV casually in your hall or bedroom, unless you're an audiophile.
    If you plan to use your TV to create a full fledged home theatre, then you may go on to purchase an HT or Soundbar 😉

    It is, but OTT apps are not the best source for high quality audio

    As I mentioned it's good for Lossless Dolby Atmos, for Lossy Dolby Atmos ARC is sufficient and Major sources right now are still lossy Atmos content.
