Playback on Roku contains heavy digital noise during loud/action scenes

The source files are 5.1. I am Handbraking the source files and my destination is Stereo and I have tried are AAC 160kbit, AC3 160kbit, AC3 320kbit.

It sounds horrible. My wife has tinnitus so she cant here the digital noise, but its damn near unwatchable.

I've been reencoding so I could make the least impact on my server. Can I leave these audio sections without impacting the server, or is converting a significant portion of causing server impact?
