Sony STRDA1200 - does it output sound from HDMI via the speakers...?

...or, as I can make out from the manual, just to the HDMI output?

Seems a bit pointless if it does - thought the idea of HDMI was to carry HIGH DEFINITION VIDEO AND AUDIO...don't think there are many TV's on the market these days that can decode DD+ or Dolby TrueHD.:rolleyes:

Pass through to TV only, If you want the amp to do the decoding ie PCM then you should have alook at the 3200 and above for this.
