As far as the ARV light coming on for PCM Wayde. Don't the bitstreams get decoded into PCM in the AVR?
I'd be interested in the answer to this. Is LPCM a transmission meathod or a final decoded audio format

It ultimately boils down to the compressed audio on the disc getting decoded and uncompressed, but does an AVR decompress bitstreams and play the audio or is all decoded data then considered LPCM meaning an avr decompresses/decodes a bitstream into LPCM and outputs this. Which of the following is correct:

Compressed audio on the disc - player decodes into LPCM and transmits - AV setup plays LPCM

or

Compressed audio on the disc - player transmits info as undecoded bitstream - AV decodes and plays bitstream audio
or
Compressed audio on the disc - player transmits info as undecoded bitstream - AV decodes bitsream - AV plays decoded bitsream out as LPCM audio.
