“I have more good news to report today – the system software update will also add DTS-HD Master Audio output for Blu-ray videos, which means the high-definition visuals of Blu-ray will now be matched with the highest quality audio for the ultimate movie-watching experience on PS3,” said a spokesperson.
“DTS-HD Master Audio is literally bit-for-bit identical to the studio master recording and makes movie soundtracks and sound effects truly come to life. The technology delivers audio at the incredibly high rate of 24.5 mega-bits per second (Mbps) on Blu-ray disc, which is significantly higher than standard DVDs. DTS-HD Master Audio also offers 7.1 audio channels at 96k sampling frequency/24 bit depths, so you’ll be totally immersed in the sound. The firmware update will add DTS-HD High Resolution Audio as well, which is a similar output technology that requires less disc space.”
So there you go.

According to engadgetHD, AV Watch recently interviewed some PS3 firmware engineers who confirmed that DTS-HD MA support is to be included in a future update.
Sony has recently added the BD-Live feature, so the inclusion of DTS-HD MA support will bring PS3′s Blu-ray player up to spec with the top of the line competition.
A release date for this inclusion has not been disclosed. However, for those firmware fans out there, not long now until the PS Store update arrives.
