What model do you have? The 60 or the 80?
I paid the extra $100 (this was about 5 months ago) for the 80 which has 7.1 multi channel outputs because I have a nice none HDMI reciever & wanted HD audio. So instead of paying $1.5k for the newer model of the one I have, just for HDMI (& the newer one has less power & not THX, like mine), so I got the 80 over the 60, so I could save $$$$ & get HD audio.
Hi, I just bought a panasonic blueray player that can decode DTS hd and Dolby true HD, but I have an older sony receiver without HDMI input. I jooked it up using optical digital cables but I'm not sure if I'm realy listening to DTS hd and Dolby true HD. The audio is still great but could it be better? Do I need a new receiver with HDMI input. If so I dont know why blue ray player decode DTS hd and Dolby true HD if you still have to buy a new receiver and most of the new ones already decode DTS hd and Dolby true HD? Thanks in advanced.
