Default PS3 optical out

Can I get HD lossless audio with an optical out or only with HDMI?

Only with HDMI. Optical only gives you PCM.

Make that "optical only gives you 2 Channel PCM."

Optical only gives you DD, DTS and 2 channel PCM. You need HDMI on the PS3 to get any form of Lossless surround.
