Well, I hope when you wake up in the morning you can make me look like a fool for writing this.
A couple things first....
No manufacturers of BD players on the market TODAY (8/1/07), claim their players can decode DTS-HD MA.
Because the necessary hardware is NOT in the players.
If it was, they would be trumpeting this to the BD community.
There are engineers and techs in the industry that post here and have said repeatedly that NONE of the players can decode MA.
The problem is that DTS has hung EVERYONE out to dry with their next gen audio codecs by being late to the party and not giving hardware manufacturers enough time to develop the necessary chipsets.
If you (or anybody out there) want to prove that there is a player on the market that can decode MA, here is how you can do it:
Post the results of DTS audio MPS exiting the outputs of any player with a chart or a link to data results that shows Megabytes-per-second.
If you can't show repeatable results of mps above 15, then you are SOL in convincing anyone around here.
I have the Panny with 2.2 FW and really, really, really wish it could decode MA, but I don't think it is possible due to internal hardware.
Prove me wrong and I'm your Homey.
