Not according to many people on different AV forums...I suppose for your EXTREME discerning taste, what you say might be true. For the average BD buyer though, I would still recommend the PS3...You seem to be the only one bashing it here and seem to be basing it almost entirely on audio codecs. This is not as important to most as it is to you. I respect you for being such an AV enthusiast, but to be honest, most people are not as hard core as you and the PS3 suits them (and me) just fine....
