Thanks for this article. It's very helpful. But I remain confused about something - does the TV need to be able to pass through the DTS signal from the DVD/Blu Ray player to a soundbar with DTS X:Virtual?

I just bought a Samsung Q70 yesterday and was planning to buy a Vizio Soundbar tomorrow BUT I did more detailed research this morning and found out that the Samsung doesn't pass any DTS signal meaning that I'd have to connect my DVD/Blu Ray directly to the Vizio soundbar. I think....

So, do I need to have a TV that passes DTS via an HDMI or optical connection to take full advantage of DTS X:Virtual?
