My Oppo blu ray player outputs audio WAY better than my PS3 did. It was the first thing I noticed right away.

It is a lot better. For example in the battles of Pacific Rim the fights are more inmersive with the XB1 tan the PS3,very more inmersive.

Both using optical input.

Snake oil thread? Also, I thought I read that both the PS4 and Xbone were lacking in the blu-ray playback features department.

Read but did not experiment right?

The audio in the Xbox 1 is a lot better than the ps3, lot better. More live and cleaner than ps3, really. I watched Pac Rim and the fights in some cases are more vivid, more 360 effect, something that the ps3 Slim failed.

I have to agree. I find the Xbox One much more inmersive and definitely more tan than the ps3.

At $500, I'd rather purchase a used car.

I don't see how the PS3 fails in audiop playback unless the XB1 is processing the sound, in which case, not accurately reproducing it.

It's much more live and cleaner and has a better 360 effect due to gold hdmi cables.
