Resistance Lossless PCM Audio | PS3Blog.net
While games and regular DVD movies have long provided Dolby 5.1 surround sound, Resistance provides uncompressed 7.1 PCM sound. I only have a 4.0 speaker setup, but with an optical audio connection hook-up, it really sounds amazing. You can really feel the spatial sensation of bullets and warfare occurring around you. I’ve played plenty of 5.1 games on my PC and this sounds much better. However, this difference may be due to my living room speakers vs. my office speakers.
Anyone here have an HDMI receiver or plan on upgrading? Or are there a lot of people who use 2.0 speaker setups or just use the speakers in their TV?
UPDATE: Michael thankfully pointed out that you can get uncompressed PCM audio without an HDMI receiver.
