I purchased an Oppo BDP-103 and mainly use it to play HDCD's at the moment. I have the Oppo connected to my old Sony HT-CT100 sound bar and wanted to know if the sound bar is capable of decoding HDCD audio, so I know if I should have the Oppo HDCD Decoding option set to On or Off. I read the Sony manual and checked online, but cant seem to find an answer, so I was hoping someone here could answer this question for me.

I don't think the CT-100 can decode HD audio. Guess you can find out by turning the Oppo decode option to Off and see what happens.

The Oppo decodes the HDCD signal if you have the onboard decoder enabled and outputs the decoded HDCD signal as PCM, which is played back by the soundbar DSP. It's that simple.
