Wanted to ask, if neither my receiver or BD player decode HD sound (Dolby True HD or DTS HD) am I missing out on a huge sound difference? I have the choice of going with a receiver that does and one that does not decode HD audio, the BD player bitstreams it (I guess that means it sends it to the receiver to decode?). The receivers i'm looking at are Sony's STRDG-920 and 1200. There's about a $200 price difference and the only big difference to me is the decoding ability. Is it worth $200? Or if anyone else has any better receiver options in the $500 range that does decode, that would be great also.
