So RockStrongo... where is the FUD you speak of, please give some examples??
The fact that using the standards we have for HD-DVD and BD, only 2-channel TRUEHD is require, and DTS HD MA is optional?
The fact that Broadcom BCM7440 chip advertises it's capabilities of delivering the lossless formats - but fails to state if this is stereo or multichannel?
The fact that Broadcom BCM7440 is only used on 3 players as it is - BH100, BH200 and BD5000 (all dual-format) and none of them produce multichannel lossless?
The fact that Broadcom BCM7440 doesn't even hint DTS HD MA format at all on it's brochure, and only highlights that it is able to play the mandatory formats (which is: 2-channel TrueHD).
Your first comment about excluding people who do not own this unit is plain dumb - you'll limit the information to the few brave people who went ahead and bought it, or "don't care about advanced audio", or people who don't use google.
After all this, I wanted this player too and wanted it to be THE Player. If any of the above information changes - I will buy it. So .. what are the posts which only provide Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt?
