Fire TV question

Hi guys, apologies this isn't really a support question . I currently have a shield running mrmc and it works a treat :-) I'm looking at purchasing a cheaper solution for my dad , I was thinking and Amazon 4K fire stick . How does the firestick perform with 4k encodes with DTS-MA audio or even bluray remuxes? He will be playing them from an external hdd connected directly to the TV. His TV doesn't decode dts audio hence the fire stick option. Any views would be greatly appreciated :-)

I'm not sure how anything running MrMC could see an external hdd connected directly to the TV :)

Amazon 4K fire sticks should be ok. Others are running them.
