Re: New Toshiba A35 HD DVD Player
I honestly don't care which comoponent does it. I guess I would prefer to have the receiver do it because generally you have more control over through the receiver than through the player.
My point though with the A35 is that the player doesn't have DTS HD Master Audio in it at all! We don't even get decoded PCM of the audio format. Nor do we get bitstream. SOL when it comes to that format on HD DVD!
Not that it makes all the difference in the world if you are given a PCM or TrueHD version. But when HD DVDs are mainly saddled with DD+ at 1.5Mbps if you are lucky, it is really annoying knowing that these uncompressed formats are sitting out there and not being used.
