It appears that DTS-MA has a "core" lossy signal that will go through optical. So, if you just want something that's not a 2-ch mixdown and you don't want to connect HDMI straight to the receiver, it still may be worth using optical, but for the full non-lossy signal, you need HDMI.

Last night, I tested and my receiver did say "DTS-MA" when I connected via optical.

Speaking of games, the thing is just barely powerful enough to do 1080p. Plain old 1080P for @#$@ sake. Nobody expected 4k this gen but 1080p was a min. requirement..
Make that 19,999,999 as I am quite happy with mine.

I understand and agree with some of the points but my primary reason for purchase, gaming, it has been a fantastic machine with a lot of great games so far I love the controller and have simply put my controllers on rotation for charging so it is a non-issue for me.

There is definitely a lot of room for refinement and improvement on the non-gaming side.

Counterspy = lotta fun. Sorta glad I missed it (since it is on plus now), but wish I had played it earlier.

I'm happy with mine. This was the third generation where I purchased a launch console, so I knew what to expect. There are some games this year that better deliver though.

I posted in the PlayStation deals thread, but I do want to say here that you can get Lego marvel superheroes for five dollars.
