Let me be more specific. Does the SONY bdp-s300 support uncompressed audio out of the coax output?

If you are interested in audio playback, this model is not recommended. Although all BD players are capable of uncompressed PCM, this model can neither decode nor bitstream the two most important HD formats: Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA. This means that even if your receiver can decode these, you have no way to enjoy them. But the thing I really hate about the bdp-s300 is it takes forever to power on, then you have to wait again before the tray will open, and again for a disc to load. By the time you can actually watch a movie ...
For about a hundred bucks more (499 vs. 399) you can get the far superior Panny BMP-BD30: http://www.onecall.com/ProductDetails.aspx?id=89657
On 5/1 the BD50 will be released which has BD live (v2.0) though this will certainly be more expensive. JMHO

You should probably post this question in the Projectors forum to get feedback. All I can say is that I know the HC5000 had very favorable reviews.
