Thanks for the input. I am talking about the so called 5.1 PCM that is output from the FMP-X1 media player it is absolutely horrible hardly any seperation at all. What I am referring to is that most if not all current movies are available with some sort of master audio sound track. DTS, Mater audio HD. Dolby Digital HD etc etc. I am not talking about PCM masters
The Sony media player does not passthru a receiver where you can process the audio formats available on the sound tracks. The media player must be connected direct to HDMI 4 off the Sony TV not allowed per Sony to go thru receiver like any other source Blu ray, cable etc
the media player has a separate audio only output. That you are suppesed to connect to external receiver and this output is PCM or stereo. And when connected will cause
handshake issues with your receiver /TV input loop. ( This is the reason that I returned the media player )
When I say double down Sony is big on PCM and has been. Most other sources give you several options of HD master audio to choose from Sony does not
To me audio is just as importantas video when watching a movie in my home theater.
I am just a bit frustrated with all the time that I spent trouble shooting this audio problem ( With Sony product specialists ) Nothing personel
Anyway I hope that Nuvola has a decent audio output is all that I am trying to say.
