Why stop at audio, why not make all transfers 720p since that is what the majority of HDTV's out there support?
I guess that's why you support Internet extras and PiP right now for Blu-Ray releases, right?
The difference is that, with the audio question, you will NEVER be able to tell the difference. Not now, not tomorrow, not next week, not next year... Just never. In contrast, some day, you may have a player that can take advantage of Internet connectivity and PiP--but those discs aren't being released on your format...yet. Get ready to buy the re-releases for your entire collection.
