On wikipedia it lists multi channel 6 channel linear PCM via HDMI.

Does that mean it doesn't have Dolby / DTS, but will still have some type of true surround sound?

I always wondered what that "Multi Channel" button was on my Onkyo. Apparently I'll find out soon enough?

It can send 6 channel audio to your receiver so yes, it will "have" dolby digital as long as whatever receiver you use has a Dolby Digital decoder in it.

To add onto this question, I'm wondering what kind of audio outputs it will have. Have they mentioned if surround sound is only available through HDMI? It would be pretty aggravating if there's no optical or even coaxial as I (and I'm sure many, many other people) don't have an audio receiver that has HDMI inputs.
