Sony BDV-E690 question


Standard Member
I am looking into getting a Sony BDV-E690 system, and I'm getting some conflicting reports on the decoding capabilities. Harvey Norman (A retailer here in Australia) lists it as having built-in decoders for Dolby Digital and Dolby TrueHD. JB Hi Fi only lists Dolby Digital. The Australian Sony site says that it supports DTS-HD. The manual listed for the product, however, says that DTS-HD MA is a supported audio format for BD/DVD input. Which one of these is correct?

Or, ultimately, will a Blu-ray with DTS-HD Master Audio play in full MA quality if it is played in the built-in Blu-ray player?
