Jeff, Chris Walker indicated above this unit will have "Internal Decoding of all audio formats (yes, even DTS-HD Master)".
Based on his statement, I made the following assumptions:
1) All sound formats could be transmitted as analog signals via the multichannel analog interconnects.
2) All sound formats could be transmitted as LPCM via the HDMI interconnect.
3) All sound formats could be transmitted as bitstream via the HDMI interconnect. (If it can decode, why would it not bitstream?) Edit: I just checked this site: http://www.idoblu.co.uk/page2%20Blu-ray%20Players.html
which does not indicate the "05" will bitstream. Not sure if it is correct or not.
Well, you know what they say when we assume things! However, from my optic, these assumptions do not seem to be a stretch.
