    Blu-rays discs support many audio formats. Not all have the same formats. If you connect via optical then your Sony only supports 48kHz. Optical can support 96/24 via DTS but the Sony doesn't support it.

    Over HDMI you can have up to 192kHz but your Sony says it only supports up to 96kHz.

    Your Sony will only accept this over HDMI as LPCM so you need to select DTS-MA or Dolby TrueHD on your Blu-ray player (if they are on the disc) and set the output to LPCM (not bitstream) and you should get the best sound available on your system.

    To be honest most people don't notice any difference between 48kHz and 96kHz. They both sound great!

    Although there is support for 96kHz and higher sample rates on Blu-Ray, the vast vast majority of releases are 48kHz.

    Regarding telling the difference between the two. I would say it's generally more noticeable with music than movie sound. In a recording studio if you record at 96/24 then go back and record a retake at 44.1/16 the difference in quality would be easily noticeable.

    Queen Rock Montreal - DTS-HD High Resolution 96/24.

    Turn up, sit back and enjoy, it's a cracker of an audio track. :smashin:
