First apologies if this should be in the peripherals section.

I was interested in the article on apogee's new mini display port adaptor which claims to able to carry LPCM audio:

I am looking at getting a mac mini to play m2ts files with HD audio. I am unaware however if OSX can do LPCM? Will part of the adaptor 'covert' the audio form HD (True-HD or DTS-HD) to LPCM?

With the speculation that Blu-ray may (I am not very hopeful) be coming to the next revision of the iMac will OSX be able to play the HD audio?

cheers

I'm waiting for the adapter as well. One less wire is always good.

The last thing I heard was gizmodo reviewing the thing July 31st and said it would be released within the week, but it hasn't been released yet so I'll give it another week.
