Default What Audio Does The PS3 Decode?

I'm wondering what audio the PS3 will decode for my Blu-Ray movies.....I know with my A2 it's a mandatory spec that they decode TrueHD but I never even thought of what's in the PS3. If you look at my sound system in my signature you'll see what I'm running for speakers and a receiver. Am I missing out on some audio or what? I'm sorry I'm not really technical and am certainly a bit of a newcomer to high quality sound. I know my A2 decoded the sound and therefore it wasn't a requirement of my receiver to have TrueHD or anything much but now with my PS3 being the new primary home theatre system I'm using would I need a better receiver if the PS3 doesn't have all the decoders? If someone could give me a quick rundown on this I'd greatly appreciate it, thanks.

First I would suggest just using the search feature as this has probably been answered many times, but the short answer is that the PS3 can pretty much decode everything internally but DTS HD-MA. There is debate as to whether or not it will ever be able to decode DTS HD-MA. But even if you get a new receiver you will not be able to get DTS HD-MA as the PS3 can only send the PCM signal that it decodes and cannot bitstream the signal to the receiver to decode.
