Default Wat s the BEST sound i can get from the S300?

i have the Sony BDP S300. i know it's really limited as far as audio goes and i see a lot of options in movies that i can't use.

what's the best sound i can get from this player? and what do i need for it to work?

example: is pcm uncompressed the best it has to offer and does it only work via 6 analog cables?

You will need a receiver that has the separate 6 channel analog inputs and six cables and your good to go.

Best sound is definitely from uncompressed PCM via the 6 analog outputs to your receiver.

Many of the Disney / Buena Vista and Sony titles offer uncompressed PCM 5.1 and they sound fantastic. You will notice significant improvement over Dolby Digital or DTS in terms of channel separation and clarity.

thanks, that's what i thought. unfortunately, a lot of movies don't offer that option.

uncompressed pcm won't work through an optical digital cable, will it?

It'll work but you can only get 2 channel out of it, you'll need to use either HMDI or analog to get the full 5.1 surround.
