Before you needed to connect an optical cable from your TV to the optical input of an audio device on top of the already connected HDMI cable to play all audio through a soundbar, now with ARC you can easily connect all these at a go from a compatible HDMI socket on your TV to an HDMI ARC socket on your soundbar.

HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) carries audio over HDMI. ARC is only capable of carrying compressed 5.1 audio, but eARC has higher bandwidth and can carry uncompressed 7.1 audio, as well as formats such as DTS:X and full bitrate Dolby Atmos. It is available on the Sony HT SF150
