HDMI audio offers many new output standards including DTS HD Master Audio 5.1 Lossless, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby TrueHD. Many of these newer audio formats are the state of the art in audio and will be used in Blu-ray and other media types. HDMI audio is considered the holly grail of digital audio_high resolution multi tracked lossless audio. Does this help excite you?
No, sorry this doesn't make me any more excited since most people (myself included) do not own (nor plan to) $10000 audio equipment to enjoy these "Master Audio 5.1" formats and the like.

What's wrong with digital coax or optical? Can't all these formats be transferred through those?
