HBOmax is free with AT&T Fiber Internet (I recently found a way to
record HBOmax content on a VHS HiFi VCR, for personal use only).

I'm using my old Pioneer VSX-D209 for DPL decoding.

Strangely, movies on HBOmax (DD 5.1 -> DS by the Edge browser)
have more Bass than the same movie on DVD (DD 5.1 -> DS).

Dolby Labs requires the DD (.1) LFE content be left out when
downmixing to DS.

Possibly the Edge browser isn't following the above downmix process.

I realize I'm in a tiny minority listening to downmixed DS w/DPL, but
at least the Edge browser developers seem to have made a sensible
decision about including LFE content.

You are fortunate to have content via Fiber to the Prim.; my neighborhood missed it by just a few years. I have to rely on DSL with copper that maxes out at 50MBPS.
What's your down load speed Kirk; or should I say "Rodney the Class M3 Model B9 General Utility Non-Theorizing Environmental Control Robot "?

I had a little toy mechanical Robby The Robot when I was a kid, scared me when I first got it.

I did listen to BBC Radio 1 (in Stereo no less) via the Real Player
software thru dial-up back in 1999 (IIRC, there was often rebuffering),
the novelty wore off after a few days and I stopped listening.
