Also, as to the original point of this post, wrt the PS3 not being able to output Bitstream audio, as of this last week, with the latest firmware upgrade, the PS3 can now output bitstream audio, making this post kind of out-dated. But, I believe that, as a recent poster said, most receivers can input lcpm nowadays with no problem. I'm looking at the Onkyo HT-S7200 for use with my PS3 and iPhone.
This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
