Not that I care anymore - I've given up waiting for Bluray to come down in price - I just don't care anymore. They seem so out of touch with their (potential) buyers now.
1. It is my understanding that the 2550 will have BD Live 2.0 through an udpate.
2. DTS HD MA seems to present some challenges. I recall that no HD DVD player ever was able to decode this on-board either. This is format-independent.
3. The PS3, introduced nearly 2 years ago, does decode all audio formats and is also 2.0. You can also be able to choose between a variety of machines shortly, including the Sony 350, Panasonic 50, 55, as well as highend machines like Pioneer.
At some point, we all have to decide if hd picture and sound is important to us our not.
