Default Sony's new BD player and TrueHD and DTS-HD-MA

Anyone got the Sony's new BD player and onkyo 605/805? Can anyone say if it will output bitstream TrueHD and/or DTS-HD-Master Audio? Also, anyone know when/if the PS3 will decode DTS-HD Master Audio and output as a bitstream?

I got my TX-SR605 last week. I also pre-ordered the new Panasonic Blu-Ray player (DMP-BD10A), so I will let you know when I get it. So far, the DMP-BD10A is the won to beat. It seems to be the player that has everything you would want. Here is the link:

The new panny DMP-BD10A does the same thing PS3 does, takes TrueHD or DD+ and outputs as PCM 5.1/7.1 depending on the disc. Also, while the new panny does supports DTS-HD, it does NOT support DTS-HD Master Audio, which is a completely different format. I don't think any BDs use HD, they use DTS-HD Master Audio, which is the superior format, since it is lossless. DTS-HD is pretty much equivalent to DD+, higher bitrate but not lossless.

illegal, don't be expecting DTS-HD-Master Audio, because it has been confirmed that it will NOT decode it out of the box. I dunno about a firmware update, but it doesn't seem to do anything that the PS3 can't do. Here's the link to the manual:http://www.docs.sony.com/release/BDPS300.pdf

I had a Sony 5 disc changer too. Was really sad to see it have to go. If they came out with a 5 disc BD changer... I'd be all over that.

That would be pretty sweet. However if Sony were the one making it maybe this time around they could add some nvram to save all the disc info to. Nothing like having the player rescan all the discs cause of a power outage.
