    PS3 and Surround Sound

    I've been thinking about picking a surround sound kit up for some time, one that supports optical in for the real deal so to speak such as the Z-5500's from Logitech, however something has been bothering me.

    If i were to buy said kit, or any kit that supports Dolby Digital and DTS, what format would Blu-Ray movies play in? Im under the impression that they use Dolby True HD and DTS HD audio codecs in comparison to normal DTS and Dolby Digital - so would i only get stereo sound if im using non-HD reciever, or any sound at all ???

    Any suggestions for other kits i could look at would also be welcome but preferbly under £250.

    The PS3 will down mix it to whatever your speakers can play. I don't have an HD receiver, however have never had a problem with my PS3, it tends to down mix to either normal DD or DTS.
