I know. It's just not that complicated for me (the coding in general, don't know the 200's specifics).

Controlling the 100 with a mpu requires ports (or i/o expander) and specific code to control the adapting. With the 200 it's only hooking it up to the i2c bus.

Foobar with the HDCD decoder lets you see in real time the HDCD flags used and coupled with the "Peak Meter" can show you if the recording passes the 0 dB (of the 16 bit).
Now, even if the "peak extend" or "transient filter" are not used, the advanced filtering in the Microsonics equipment used at recording time produced better sounding CD's.
For example is "Roxy Music - Avalon" does not use the two above flags and peaks are at -6dB.

The PlayStation 3 can output the HDCD bitstream via HDMI or TOSLINK.
