Ok if I set up player for PCM, then receiver will show me only PCM format not DTS or DTS HD, not even Dolby digital ???
Then what is the point ? If I have PCM, it is the same as I listen and watch freeview broadcast.
It is the same, PCM is lossless audio so it will sound just as good.

Check this regarding audio formats:
PCM is the other main format in use on Blu-ray and is seen by some as the ‘holy grail’ of audio. Because it is uncompressed and identical to the studio master it occupies far more disc space than the compressed Dolby and DTS formats, and as such it is used less frequently. For example, many early releases from Sony featured PCM tracks, but they have now largely switched to TrueHD (and to a lesser extent Master Audio)."

Thank you guys.
I am going to do some test now with analog and digital connection and of course I try to set up player for PCM and hear the difference.
Ok I set up player panasonic dmp-bdt120 digital audio output in every format ( dolby d.....DTS) to PCM and PCM down conversion( which convert 96 khz to 4 put it OFF,so it will be 96 khz.
Compare to CA 751,
CD it sounds more balance, no overbassed, DVD Terminator Salvation it is no so good as CA,
I did not hear any difference between analog and digital ( HDMI) and also no difference between PCM and bitstream at all.
I assume that the same result will be with PS3 - PCM and bitstream.
