View Full Version : PS3 24/96?

30-09-2009, 11:14
Quick question guys, is it possible to play 24/96 or higher audio files on the the PS3? I've tried a few downloaded 24/96 WAV files saved onto a USB stick and transfered onto the PS3 HD
All I get is unsupported data, trying normal WAV's work ok

Firmware is 3.01, the files are seen if looked under audio list on the ps3 but soon as I try and play them it says unsupported data.
All the options are ticked for optical out settings

Its my sons PS3 but a friend wants to use one with his Stan dac and asked me if it'll work

Any idea's ta:confused:

Hi Leo,

If you don't get a reply here beforehand, send a PM to Duncan (Tubehunter), as he is rather knowledgeable about the PS3 (he's got one and knows all it's 'workings' inside out) :)

i think the new "slimline" ps3 will be capable... i havent looked into it but it was suggested to me in the shop in passing that it would be able to proccess dts hd (24/96) etc.. this woud obviously be through hdmi but there might be a knock on effect to the optical...
please dont quote me on this as i dont really know what im saying and its pure speculation

Hamish and Leo,
Which of us is missing something? - neither of your individual Posts count match the count in the top right hand corner of each post - doing your own count is therefore unnecessary, inaccurate and invalid, so :ner: !
