I'm considering buying a codefree version of the BP520 player. But there's one tiny catch I stumbled over:
According to the official specs, the BP420 is capable of decoding the following audio formats:
LPCM, Dolby Digital(2ch), Dolby Digital Plus(2ch), Dolby TrueHD(2ch), DTS, MPEG 1/2 L2, MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC.
DTS-HD MA is missing. But curiously the specs state as well that "LPCM Conversion (DTS HD, Dolby TrueHD)" is supported. So allegedly the player is NOT capable of decoding DTS-HD MA and outputting it over the stereo-cinch connectors, but it IS capable of decoding DTS-HD to LPCM and stream it over HDMI. Which's kind of paradox to me. I already contacted the LG support and they had no clue either.
Same goes for the BP520, but for the BP620, the audio formats it is capable of decoding are:
LPCM, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus(7.1ch), Dolby TrueHD(7.1ch), DTS, DTS-HD MA, MPEG 1/2 L2, MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC
And here is DTS-HD MA included.
Which's all in all puzzling me. Do you think this could be an error in the data sheets? I don't see ANY reason in enabling DTS-HD -> LPCM conversion, but NOT enabling DTS-HD decoding. I'd like to connect an old Stereo Receiver (from 1992...) directly to the stereo-cinch connectors. It would be nice if the player itself would be capable of decoding DTS-HD MA and handing the resulting signal over to the cinch connectors.
Has anyone noticed the BP420 being able or not being able to decode DTS-HD MA internally?
