For those who have HDMI receivers...
I had to buy a new receiver around this time last year due to my old one breaking (Aiwa) and went out and purchased a Onkyo TX-SR503. I could have paid a bit more and gotten one with HDMI, but since my TV didn't have HDMI inputs, I decided to go the cheaper route.
I later purchased an HD-A2... which I'm very happy with, but I have no way of getting TrueHD on the few titles that I have with it. I also intend on getting a PS3 next month, and I have a TON of titles with PCM or DTS-HD MA and no way of listening to them either... so, while I hate to spend the money on a new receiver when I'm happy with mine, pre-ordering allows me the ability to get a machine capable of getting the TrueHD from my HD-A2, PCM from the PS3, and should allow me the ability to get DTS-HD MA from the PS3 soon (hopefully) as well as 1080p pass through for when I get that new 1080p TV late this year for only a little more than what I paid for for the SR503 last year.
In other words, if you don't have an HDMI receiver, this is a pretty good deal...
