Audio Quality

I use Infuse on the Apple TV. I am looking at purchasing a soundbar and am wanting some information on what audio quality I will get from the Apple TV.

I know that the Apple TV does not pass through audio but what quality can I expect from a 4K UHD rip playing off a NAS?

Will it sound the same as if playing through a UHD player? If not what can I expect?

You will get lossless, just without the Atmos metadata. All the audio will be there, just lacking the precision handling that Atmos provides. For a soundbar probably won’t matter.
