I'm really asking for opinions on whether or not overall sound quality is enhanced via Blu-Ray when DTS-HD or True-HD codecs are not used.
Your receiver has multicahnnel analog inputs and the Oppo has multichannel audio outputs. The Oppo will decode DTS MA Dolby True HD and any other HD audio source and pass it along to your receiver via the aforementioned inputs/outputs so you will be able to hear the HD audio with your current receiver.
Did that help?
Anthem, Conrad Johnson, Dish Network/JVC, Dynaudio, Infinity, Integra, JL Audio, Klipsch, Magnepan, Marantz, Martin Logan, Onkyo, Oppo, Outlaw Audio, Panasonic, Paradigm, REL, Sumiko, SVSound, and Toshiba are the brands equipment I currently use. I have owned/used and tested equipment made by just about any manufacturer you can name.
