    EDIT: Just re-thought this.. :D It does state it accepts 8Ch LPCM so maybe if you're sending PCM from the PS3 (which as it can't send HD bitstream would probably be the case) then I guess it could 'convert' that to analouge outputs...

    :oops:

    I had Bitstream on the brain.. :D

    Ignore the waffle below! :rolleyes: :suicide:



    Unless I've missed something?? Not for the HD audio codecs (DTS-HD MA, DD+, Dolby True HD) as this device only supports the SD audio (Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Digital EX, Dolby Pro Logic II, AC3, DTS Express, DTS ES, DTS 96/24)

    I doubt it can re-mix or 'downgrade' HD audio. ie. if you input TrueHD via HDMI you'll get no sound at all from this device, not even DD at full bitrate.

    So it's pretty useless IMO even for SD audio as you could just use optical from the PS3 and get better results. :smashin:

    It may accept a DTS-HD MA signal via HDMI and playback the DTS Core track from this, but I'd check before you buy as it's only a possible... I'm basing that on the DTS information that the DTS Core contained in all DTS HD tracks apparently is usable by all 'legacy' SD audio equipment with standard DTS decoding, but this kit's a little different so I personally would want to check this first.... but as I said what's the point?? :confused:

    £200 for the 'pre-amp' part of a modern A/V amp, only without the ability to decode DTS-MA, etc - it can only do LPCM, so your player needs to decode these for you. And you need to rely on the unit's own LCD screen, too.

    If it was the full deal, with decoding for all formats, automatic set-up, display over HDMI, it might be worth it.
