Question. I'm going to be picking up a Bose Solo 15 to sit my Kuro monitor on top of (which has no speakers). I intend to run an optical cable directly into the Oppo from the Bose and noticed that I have four different options under audio settings for the Optical Input.

Bitstream - This is what I used with my previous Sony CT660 soundbar, which had decoding capabilities. But I'm pretty sure the Bose doesn't have any, so that leaves me with the three LPCM options (48k, 92k, 192k). Any idea which one I'm supposed to use or will it even matter?

My TV is a Samsung F8500 plasma if it matters.
Posted this earlier: You should set the OPPO to output NTSC. Blu-ray is not impacted, Netflix will be smooth, and your Samsung will recognize 60P. I got this response from OPPO, and it worked for me and others.

Is this the only speaker you intend to use? If you are trying to use it as a Center speaker -- i.e., part of a multi-speaker setup -- you are going to have problems. For one thing the volume setting on the Bose is independent of however you are controlling volume for the other speakers. In addition, the Optical output of the OPPO will include audio for all the speakers when you play multi-channel content, which means the audio for, say, the Surround speakers will ALSO come out of the Bose -- not what you want.

If you are intending to use it as your only speaker, I suggest you try the Bitstream setting first. The Bose literature is suspiciously silent about what digital audio formats this box will accept on its Optical input, but odds are it will accept Dolby Digital 5.1 48KHz Bitstreams as many TVs will output that on their "external sound system" Optical output jack. Check with low volume to start. If you get no sound or garbage sound change the OPPO to LPCM. The LPCM choices let you limit the output to what the receiving device can accept. If you set 192KHz there is no limit, but lower rate content (e.g, CDs at 44.1KHz or movies at 48KHz) will still be sent out at their native rate -- not raised to 192KHz. Since Bose doesn't say what their box will accept, it would probably be best to set 48KHz when using LPCM. Choosing LPCM means the OPPO will send a Stereo down-mix to the box if your play multi-channel content.

Simplifying here, but 3D output acts rather like Source Direct.

I guess I'll just have to try Bitstream and then try LPCM if it doesn't sound right. I'll be using it as my only speaker. Nothing else.

^ OK, if Bitstream isn't working it will be obvious -- not subtle.
