My speakers came with my 4 year old receiver. It was a boxed set. If my speakers are low end, I don't think I would benefit from TrueHD right?

I am sure your reciever doesnt support True HD. You will enjoy DTS sound on your 5.1 system.

I personally can hear a difference between them. It is just pure s3x IMO. I assume you bought the 40GB, buy a SACD and listen to it thats how I compare DTS 5.1 to TRUE HD 7.1.

You should buy SACDs anyway they are the biggest musical eargasm ever.

The PS3 really requires a TV that can up/down scale, because the console will do

TrueHD tracks are typically of higher quality than DTS.

if you want TrueHD playback on a PS3, your receiver must have an HDMI connection. if your receiver only has TOSLINK (optical cable), the best you'll ever get is lossy Digital Dolby or DTS.
