Hi, does anyone know what audio the PS3 will output via HDMI now. Will it output all the new HD audio formats?

Thanks :)

Hi pontious45. :)
Internally decodes all HD audio soundtracks and sends over HDMI :smashin: you'll need an amp that can accept LPCM via HDMI :cool: and then your good to go! :D
All the best.

HD audio can't be sent via optical.
