From BDV-N9200W : Blu-ray Home Theatre Systems : Home Theatre System : Sony India

LPCM (2ch/5.1ch/7.1ch) Yes/Yes/Yes (except for HDMI in)

DTS96/24, DTS-ES Matrix 6.1, DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 Yes (except for HDMI in)

DTS/DTS-HD Yes (except for HDMI in)

DTS/DTS-HD (HR/MA/LBR) Yes (except for HDMI in)

DTS Yes (except for HDMI in)

What are the practical consequences of these restrictions on HDMI in?

I think this all-in-one player accepts other HDMI sources like Blu-ray/Media player/DVD but does not decode all the audio formats. But I think as per the specs published on the Sony website it decodes all the audio formats when the disc is played back directly on the in-built bluray drive. Not sure about the price but I think in the budget of 25 to 35k you should be able to get the Onkyo/Yamaha's receivers like 3500/YHT299 which are far better than the Sony listed.

That means DTH and ripped movies cannot be viewed with DTS and DTS HD.
