So, this Roku stream bar comes with the power supply cable, remote, batteries, HDMI and Optical cable.

Its remote comes with a voice control. Which is very important these days.

To find your favorite content. Between tons of content available in the Roku.

Its remote doesn’t have any headphone jack for private listening.

For that, you can use the Roku app. Roku stream bars support Dolby audio/atmos.

But don’t support the Dolby vision. Although the Roku stream bar supports 4k HDR content.

For the audio output from the stream bar. You will get the various audio output options.

Like bass boost and bass reduction. And many others. You can choose according to your preference.

As you want to hear. Audio coming from the stream bar is very clear.

Because in the stream bar. You will get four speakers. Two in the centre and two more at left and right.

Although it doesn’t come with the Dolby vision. But to manage that there is HDR 10 available.

Which can also be considered a good picture quality format. 

If you have a soundbar for your projector that supports Dolby atmos. 

Then you can connect your soundbar to the projector. For the huge benefits of Dolby Atmos.

In your media room. Its user interface looks a little bit outdated. During the setup, you can connect your Roku remote.
