Thanks! The BD91 does it as well. I posted to the 360/460 owners thread to find out if there is any difference in video quality.

Ready to order a Panny blu-ray player, but trying to decide between the BD91, BT230, and BT360. Not worried about Internet streaming support since my UT50 takes care of that. Don't use DLNA or 3D. ...

Nevermind. I found the information in the back of the manual. It does decode to multichannel PCM.

I saw that. But it doesn't say for sure that it's multichannel, does it? One of the Samsung models I looked at decodes into 2 channel only for PCM. So I'm hoping for confirmation. But thanks. I can...

Does the BDT230 have full multichannel PCM output via HDMI when decoding HD audio? Not clear from the manual, and I know some blu-ray players only do 2 channel PCM now, and I've got an older Dolby...

blu-ray with multichannel PCM <$100

Got an old Denon AVR-888 that does Dolby Digital and accepts multichannel PCM, but no HD audio decoding. So, I need a blu-ray player than can do all the HD audio decoding for me as output over PCM...

Totally makes sense that's one reason people are drawn to vinyl. Also, I can understand how some people would enjoy the hunt for collecting albums :)

Which is why I wonder more people don't digitally record their vinyl if that's the sound they like. Saves on wear of the records and would be way more convenient once digitized. All one needs is a...

First of all, that 130 watts RMS stated spec for the SR805 is 2 channels driven. It likely would not reach that with all channels driven. Probably closer to something like 100 to 110 watts.

Twice as much? They are under $140 on Amazon. I thought the cheapest Bose start about $150 (might be wrong).
