Why would manufacturers specifically point out MA decoding when they could simply say DTS-HD? Why would Panasonic spec their player for DTS-HD, but make no mention of Master Audio or lossless DTS?
The DTS site is blurring the distinction between their codecs, convincing people like you that the high resolution lossy decoder will also decode the lossless codec. That hasn't been the case so far. If what you and the OP are claiming is true, then why would DTS make a professional DTS-HD
encoder that doesn't
encode DTS-HD MA?
The OP started this thread asthough he discovered something that has somehow escaped the rest of this forum. Riiiiiiight.
