The ONLY way that "lossless is lossless" in the context that I am discussing has to do with the A35...If the A35 decodes and outputs as 6 channel analog OR bitstreams the codec for a AVR to do the processing the difference will be minute if any...However the A3 & A30 DO NOT have the same capability as they output lossy since that is all they are capable of...In other words the audio sounds no better than SDVD DD or DTS on those players...
Now if you are talking that the audio out through optical
on the A35 is the same as the A3 then you are correct...Optical CANNOT output the lossless information...But you seem to believe some insane reason that HDMI is "hype" so I am sure you are not talking about optical...
You are correct, I have no idea what you think, cuz your thinking is incorrect.
Sorry, but you simply do not understand HD lossless audio capabilities.
I'm only refering to HDMI, you keep throwing in Optical in a discussion of lossless HD audio, I'm well aware of Optical audio limitations
Player decoded HD lossless audio, sent as MPCM via HDMI is indeed LOSSLESS AUDIO! And the A3 *IS* capable of this for TrueHD.
I never said HDMI was hype, I said HDMI 1.3 is hype (i.e. not needed for lossless audio) as HDMI 1.1 is MORE than capable of handling HD audio as MPCM.
I suggest you try this link as a starting point to these very facts. It covers the HDMI 1.3 "hype" in general for both audio and video, but includes a very nice section on just this discussion of player decoded LOSSLESS audio:http://www.highdefdigest.com/news/show/853
