Isn't that one of those EU produced CDs where the copyright has lapsed in the EU? The quality of those is all over the place.
The OJC CD is worth seeking out and can be found used for cheap.

I think PCM should be the output setting in the player and "Straight" or "Direct" or its' equivalent in the AVR.
Don't use any surround presets or anything of the sort in the AVR.

Also remember that if one uses room-correction, EQ,or Bass management, then DSD is converted to PCM by the amp or AVR regardless if it is DSD compliant.

No. Spending $200 to play TLOU and maybe rent a Blu-Ray movie doesn't make sense.

Lol, yeah, we're not really helping OP. But Sony disabled it in the spec, I believe, not just in their players.

I can understand mp3 sounding worse than CD, but are you saying the PS3 somehow alters or colors the digital files?
Or do you think game console=bad internals or inferior DACs?
