I use Bitstream, as is explained in the article @Pugs1957  the quality will very much depend on your particular system.

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

@Edgie70 Think I would go with Bitstream, you may wish to make a  comparison though.

Probably bitstream if you are using external speakers. But every person's taste is different, so try both of the settings and see which one you prefer.
