How do HD audio codes work?
I am looking to get a sound-bar, and i have been very interested in the JBL SB400 sound-bar as it seems decently priced, and has a 5 star rating from What HiFi magazine.
However, I have a question. I have many Blu-ray discs that have the DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD lossless audio codecs on there, which are made to be better than the normal Dolby Digital lossy codec. I have noticed that the JBL doesn't have DTS HD decoding, however my blu-ray player does. Bearing in mind that there are 3 HDMI inputs on the sound-bar.
So my question is, will i still be able to get decent high definition audio from my sound-bar even though it doesn't decode these HD formats, but my Sony Blu-ray player does and there are still 3 HDMI inputs on the sound-bar?
If not, is there any way getting round it, for example: changing the blu-ray player settings to PCM only?
