Herein lies all of the confusion about this product.
The MANUAL does NOT (yet) have the DTS-HD Advanced Digital Out logo, it only has the DTS Digital Surround logo. In fact, the linked pdf at the bottom of the post does not have the DTS-HD ADO logo, just the Digital Surround logo. That is the scary part. It does say MA (with firmware update).
The other scary part is that the manual says TrueHD on 2 channel only.http://www.samsung.com/us/system/con.../BD-UP5000.pdf
Samsung needs to clarify. If they are planning on releasing it without these functions, I would have to ask Samsung why?
I am not buying a dual format player with the DTS Digital Surround logo. It has to have the Advanced Audio Out capabilities, or dts-MA out through the analogs. TrueHD needs to be 5.1 minimum, not 2.0.
I want this player, but as of right now there is no pre-order for me. Luckily, I have until mid-January to decide. I will be getting a new receiver and a BD player at that time. I have an A2 right now, but once i get a new receiver I would like a DF player.
