So much discussion on this thread for no good reason. The DTS web page starts out with the statement:
"You can enjoy DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio if you have a new Blu-ray Disc or HD-DVD player with a DTS-HD Audio decoder built into the player. The audio will be decoded inside the player and passed to the receiver in two different ways."
The above statement includes the condition "IF you have a new...." Perhaps this could have been made more clear if DTS would have said "....if, and only if, you have a new Blu-ray Disc or HD-DVD player with the corresponding type of DTS-HD Audio decoder built into the player" This condition in the DTS statement is not met for any of the current generation of players as far at DTS-HD-MA is concerned. However, certain new players announced for this fall will support the internal decoding of DTS-HD-MA and for these players the DTS statement could apply.
