Default Re: Next Gen, HDMI 1.3 Receivers Slow To Market Do You Really Need Them?

The player needs to decode the audio anyway first so that it can dub in any extra menu sound effects. If a player outputs a lossless DTS or DD bitstream it is decoding then re-encoding. So does it really matter other than the fact that your AVR will light up and say Dolby True or DTS MA HD? Is the AVR going to do a better job at decoding an already decoded then re-encoded bitstream?

Deep color is still a few years out from truly being supported. Computers (PCs) and game consoles I believe are the only sources right now.
