for Blu-ray Pure Audio disc, if I only use PCM 5.1 mode, is there a difference vs. CD?

    So I'm reading the spec. of this music Blu-ray 50GB disc, it says 24 bit / 96kHz, and it plays at 3 modes: PCM 5.1/ dts-HD / Dolby TrueHD

    Suppose I only have a left / right speaker set and play this Blu-ray pure audio at PCM 5.1 only, in that case, is there a noticeably difference of the same songs compares to a music CD?

    If you only have a 2Ch set-up, it shouldn't matter which mode you listen in.

    probably. if its encoded for surround you wont be getting the rear effects or even the LF channel.
