There may be some confusion about calibration tones and actual soundtracks. 105dB is the maximum loudness that can be transmitted without clipping. But, the maximum output for LFE is 115dB, which...

Sean - that article is not out of date re: to the issue at hand. LFE is designed to play 10dB louder than other channels - a maximum of 115dB - a level that will clip in digital transmission. So,...

That doesn't sound normal. Is the sub equally weak if you bitstream the same track instead of decoding in the player for a PCM output? If the output is the same both ways, then the problem is...

Good question. That's an unusual setting for a digital input. Perhaps your AVR lets the user have some control over SW levels with PCM. Note that the manual doesn't offer that option with...

The end user has no control over the way the processor handles the LFE boost and mixing redirected bass from the full range channels. There's more than one way to handle those tasks and Sony has...

Unless your AVR is mis-engineered, it will do the required 10dB boost for LFE without any user intervention. With digital, that's all handled by the software. The end user should only need to get...

PCM is limited to stereo over optical. If you want discrete 5.1, then transcoding dts to DD 5.1 is the way to go. But, if your PC software can't do that, then stereo PCM will give you sound.

The Panasonic HTIB manuals that I've seen have had a note explaining that they don't decode DTS from external sources. So, I'd suggest looking in your manual.

Many Panasonic HTIBs will decode DTS when playing discs on their built in DVD players but not from external sources. I suspect that's your problem.

It seems odd that previews on BDs play fine, but DVDs don't. They both use the same audio codecs.

Is your player set to bitstream? If so, try changing it to PCM.

What exactly is different from the setup that used to work in your old house to what doesn't work in your new one?

Does the same thing happen if you play a DVD instead of a Blu-ray?

With multichannel analog, you do bass management in the player instead of the receiver. So, you don't have to do without. You also do distance adjustments in the player.

If the only difference is lossless audio, then it's not worth upgrading. The high bitrate lossy outputs over S/PDIF sound great, rivaling lossless in quality. But, modern processors offer enhanced...

As a matter of curiosity, if the lossy core is 96k, what happens if you bitstream such a track over optical to a processor with a legacy DTS Surround decoder?

HFPA uses standard formats (PCM, dts-MA, and TrueHD). I believe the core on an HFPA disc has the same legacy DTS limitations as any other dts-MA encode.

As far as I know, the lossy 5.1core of DTS-HD Master Audio is not 96/24. The core is standard DTS Surround, which supports 96kHz for stereo, but is limited to 48k for 5.1. That's why DTS developed...

Can you be little more specific about this new player? Are you saying it has a DTS 96/24 decoder and that it correctly decodes that format and outputs the resulting 96/24 PCM to your receiver?
