Talking DTS MA DD TruHD and BDP-S550

I just got the BDP-S550 yesterday and here is my first impression so far

- Half the size of the BDP-S300
- Looks and feel sturdy
- Decodes all format including DTS Master Audio
- Loads faster especially in stand-bymode
- Nice picture
- Made in Japan

- No gold connectors
- How annoying after you open the tray and put a disc in instead of being able to press play and have the player start you have to actually push close and then play!!!

I will add more as I get more experience unless I return this thing! I spoke with Sony tech support and now I am totally confused.

What Sony mentioned is that unless you have a pre/pro or receivers that can decode Dolby Tru HD and DTS Master Audio it doesn't matter if your player can decode these format you will only get down converted sound to DD and DTS???

So who is right?
