Netflix vs Prime

Something is eating me... Sound quality between Netflix and Amazon Prime. Netflix works without any problems with 5.1 audio. Prime is a fucking dog on anything but mono or direct stereo. I am running the Apps on a Nvidia shield connected to a Denon 1613 receiver. The shield is hard-wired to a Netgear gt108 network switch and router.
Any words of wisdom from the Pirates?

Amazon audio has been problematic for years and I don't know why. Man in the High Castle was the worst audio, really hard to understand people talking, just off. Netflix is 100%

I've heard the same issue at 3 other people's houses with different setups than mine. I've got 5.1 surround with an amp, etc. Amazon audio is broken somehow, you just can't hear the difference.

This is sort of pissing me off because I have bought a few classic titles from Prime. Even Youtube audio/video comes in great; I am sure that other streaming services are better the Prime.

I am wondering if Prime audio quality is affected by internet speed? What's in your wallet?

Better than yours. TV has a cat6 connection, too. PS3 acts the same way.

Prime just sucks overall.
Shitty user experience and shitty GUI.

I take care of my parents (86+y/o) can't find a GUI that makes them happy when I am away. They fucking live for the nightly movie; otherwise they are in opposite ends of the house watching CNN & FOX. My life is a living hell!
I am just pissed that Amazon audio is sucking the big donkey dicks.

Funny,parents can't hear worth shit, watch everything with close caption.

Did I say that? Do you think my TV is plugged into a "router"?

I have the same complaint. DirecTV is fine, Netflix is fine but Amazon prime sucks. PS4 HDMI to a Onkyo TX-RZ840, Acoustech PL980 towers PL28 center and a pair of PL 200 subs, Athena surrounds. No matter what I do, voices are impossible to hear unless the volume is cranked, then other sounds will make you piss yourself.
