Not to worry, I did not take your post in that way at all,,,, and I would agree that Bose is not very forthcoming when it comes to spec's.

So there are 2 sound bars. It is clear that one cant decode the full lossless Blu ray audios, as there is no hdmi out, just optical. So I guess one is getting the dts core at 1.5mbps. Still really good.
Can the upper Bose Soundbar that does have hdmi actually give one the full lossless dts ma, Dolby true codecs?
Yea,,,, good question,,,,,what does the 1SR decode and what does the 135 decode,,,, perhaps "J_Feng" could answer that one as he works for Bose.

I've been reading reviews on Amazon as well and saw some horrible comments on it, now I don't know if those people knows what they're doing but one comment I read was that the dialogue from the actors are being overwhelmed by the rest of the sounds where it makes it hard to hear what they're saying, have you experienced this issue? Also one reviewer said the sound becomes fatique(?) or distorted once the volume is being increase, I'd like your clarification on that please. I'm really thinking about giving this a go since it will be my first soundbar and first home surround system, thank you.
I have no problem with dialog with my Bose bar,,, everything sounds perfect.
As far as bad comments on Amazon, I have read those as well, I would not be to quick to beleive those comments though as there are lots of Bose bashers out in the wild that will bash Bose products they have never even heard or seen,,,,,,, and by the same token I have heard that Bose employee's will spice review site's with glowing Bose review's,,,, I would guess there is some dis-honesty going on from both ends,,, Bose bashers and people connected to Bose.
As far as any distortion with loud volume I cant comment on that, I live in a condo and share one wall with a neighbor,,,, if I were to crank the volume really loud I might get a visit from the cops,,,, I have had the 1SR cranked up a bit though and have had no distortion at all.
