Audio Codec decoding, is it done by player or AV receiver?

Hi! I'm planning to purchase a BluRay player and I need to know if it's desirable to get a player that can decode each and every Audio Codec (DD, DD+,Dolby TrueHD,DTS etc etc), given that I will be coupling it with a receiver namely an ONKYO HT-S9400 THX or HT-S8409, that can decode all of that. Does the BluRay player does a bit of decoding before passing the signal to the receiver or does the receiver do it all? Thanks and Cheers!
