Arrow Uncompressed Audio...

... Okay at the moment I have a REALLY old DVD/Combo amp thing and I was fiddling around with Spidey 3 sound settings, switched it to Uncompressed audio or whatever its called and REALLY noticed the difference... Only problem is, it only came out of the front 3 speakers...

What kinda kit do I need to get the proper experience....?

Ideally, an amp that accepts linear PCM over HDMI. Even then, you won't get lossless DTS until Sony release another firmware update.

From what I understand, if you sending a PCM track over optical to your receiver, you will only get 2.0, not 5.1. The optical is not capable of handing the full PCM track.

If your receiver has 5.1 analog inputs and your player has 5.1 analog outputs you can send PCM audio that way.

What player and what receiver do you have? If you have multichannel analog outputs on your player and the inputs to use it on your receiver you can get Uncompressed PCM that way. Not all players have this, and not all players will decode TrueHD to PCM for this output either.

The PS3 only has 2 analog output so to get PCM you need to replace your receiver.

Or just stick with regular Dolby Digital and DTS by using the optical output.
