Now, HDMI 1.3 adds decoding ability for the new lossless hi-def audio codecs, Dolby True-HD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

Instead, I'll just tell you about the only b audio trend I saw there: HDMI. Everywhere I went at the Denver Convention Center, manufacturers were shouting that their players had HDMI outputs and their pre-pros and AVRs had multiple HDMI inputs, although what they do with the video and audio varied a lot. Now, with HDMI 1.1a handling multichannel PCM and HDMI 1.2 handling DSD, the HDMI hardware's audio capabilities are catching up to what was promised in the orinal HDMI specification.

Of course, since these players can also transcode the new formats into PCM, it would seem that HDMI v1.2 would be all you need for any hi-def audio format that has appeared so far.

Considering the situation for music only, though, I see a split in the market. This means that, for music, we must hold on to our current audio players until a new generation of players appears or there is a reformulation of what constitutes a "universal" player.
