still waiting to see what is done with profile 2.0, as 2.0 is supposed to be a "final" spec, meaning that 2.0 classified will mean the same support across everything, which is why there is still heavy debate whether ps3 will be 2.0 or not. here is a helpful page about profiles (notice all of the "optional" audio formats). the ps3 is kind of a no-win situation, either the final 2.0 profile is gimped to have the ps3 meet the 2.0 spec, or sony screws itself and the ps3 is 1.1 only. either way there are cheaper alternatives than the ps3 that will be upgradeable to 2.0 when the spec is finalized.
