    If I select LPCM as the output sound format for BD's and I select a DD5.1 sound track on the BD, does the PS3 convert the DD5.1 internally and send it out as a LPCM format via hdmi?

    Cheers,

    Richie.

    thats exactly what happens.. if you select bitstream the ps3 outputs dolby digital/dts and your amp decodes the stream.. some have commented that dd/dts sound better when you output them as bitstream and let your amp decode rather than letting ps3 decode them..
