    I have been very impressed with the 5.1 output from blu-ray- it seems far louder and more powerful than my 360 HD DVD drive! :)

    the sacd playback is amazing, never heard sacd before, makes standard cds and mp3s sound well muddy. well worth investing in a sacd if you have your pc connected to a 5.1 setup through hdmi.
