    Try this site, I was looking at the Lacinema HD Mini/Classic if you use this link you can select them both and where you "select test" select "DTS".

    The Classic was tested with a newer firmware and all forms of DTS were passed through. I am trying to find out if the new firmware for the mini brought out since the review enables passthrough for the rest. Sopme other players with the same chipset dont support so watch out.

    If your buget it £200 It should not matter to you but I dont want to have to spend the extra on the hard drive unless I have to.

    Sorry correction, they both support passthrough! I am looking at the converting down to stereo via HDMI options. The mini converts 6.1 and the classic converts all.... Still trying to find out if this has changed since firmware upgrade...

    Looking at all the media players that can do TrueHD/DTS-MA passthrough Here shows a list of 54 to choose from - although not all of them will be within budget.
