Default I guess I'm a tad confused (regarding lossless audio)

With this push for the highest resolution audio possible, I don't get what the point of multiple lossless codecs is.

Dobly True HD = losslessly compressed audio
DTS-HD MA = losslessly compressed audio
LPCM = lossless audio

It's all the same audio, right? 24-bit/96Hz or whatever (unless we're up to 32-bit and I never got the memo) and when it's decoded by the players and output as 5.1 LPCM audio...does it really matter? It's all the same audio losslessly compressed with a different codec to make it sound more impressive, correct?

Or am I missing something? Does DTS-HD MA really sound better than Dolby Tue HD and better than LPCM?
