    A Question for HT Rotel Decoders

    HI, I already have a RSP-1068; with a std Denon DVD. I'd like to buy a Blue-Ray for the HD Movies. But I'm not convinced to do that, because my 1068 don't have the specific codecs for DTS-HD and TRU-HD; does anyone of you can suggest me an alternative for this, in order to avoid change my currect Rotel Gear and take advantges of them.

    Buy a blue-Ray player with internal decoding (they're not even expensive anymore) and use the 5.1 analog output with the dierect analog inputs on your processor.

      If the 1068 takes MULTI-LPCM, then the PS3 will decode for you, but I'm not sure the 1069 supports it, I do believe I'm thinking about the 1069 which I almost purchased because of this feature.

            The PS3 won't work for your situation if you want to get the lossless audio from BDs since it doesn't have a multi-channel analog output.

            There are a few players that do have them and they vary greatly in price. One player that I'd recommend is the Denon BDP-2010CI. It's a very nice BD player in terms of picture quality for both BD and DVD playback. The analog output is also very good sounding and it has proper set up for bass management, speaker distance and channel level. Quite a number of players I've come across don't have proper capabilities for their decoders and/or don't sound as good.

            Here is a link to Denon's web site page for it.

                  Clarification: The PS3 slim bitstreams lossless via HDMI, or you can set it to decode the TrueHD and DTS-HD MA internally to send as LPCM via the HDMI. The PPCM is compressed, but oh so awesome too!
