I've got a Sony BDP-S350 player, and it doesn't decode DTS-HD. I've also got a HTIB Sony HT-SS2300, which doesn't decode DTS-HD. Both are connected via HDMI.


If I buy a new player that decodes and outputs DTS-HD, would the receiver be able to process the signal properly?


Basically, I'm wondering if I need to replace both the player and receiver, or if I can just replace the player, to get DTS-HD.


And if I only need to replace the player, what would be a good replacement? Looking to keep it around $300 or less.


Thanks!

It looks like that receiver can process LPCM audio via HDMI. So all you need is a player that can internally decode the various codecs and send them out as LPCM. The PS3 is the classic example of this, but most recent standalone players (including the 350's successor, the 360) can do it as well, even inexpensive ones.


Check the chart

and any player with "complete" in the first four columns will do what you want.
