If I use an external dac with a blu-ray player, apparently I cannot get lossless audio for movies unless it is an HDMI dac. Per oppo:
to bandwidth limitations, high resolution audio formats such as Dolby Digital
Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD High Resolution and DTS-HD Master Audio cannot be
sent through the coaxial or optical digital audio output. A reduced resolution
version of the same audio track will be output instead. To listen to high
resolution audio formats in their best quality, please use the HDMI
My question is if I use my computer to play blu-rays or ripped bluray mkv files and use a usb dac will I get lossless audio? Using an ifi idsd. thank you.
