Confused on Blu-ray audio hookup

I'm looking to pickup a Sony BDP-S350 when its available and finally jump into the high def disc world. I'm confused on how I should hook up the audio for the player.

The player will be hooked up to a 5.1 setup that doesn't have HDMI inputs, but it does have 5.1 audio inputs. It looks like the BDP-S350 will only decode PCM over the 5.1 audio connections. What will happen if I play a Blu-ray with a True-HD or a DTS-MA track?

I believe the 350 will decode DD True HD and output it through the 5.1 analog connections, but it doesn't decode DTS-MA. To get DTS-MA you would need a receiver with HDMI inputs and a DTS-MA decoder. Otherwise, the 350 will simply output the DTS-MA track as DTS.
