no. Your PS3 is converting the TrueHD to PCM and send as MPCM. It should be same quality of TrueHD, but the difference is, PS3 is doing the conversion instead of your receiver.
Some newer players allow the bitstream (Samsung 1400 and Toshiba HD) of TrueHD and DTS HDMA, but it's little buggy from what I read.
