If you are using HDMI cables, disable "Keep DTS audio in stream", and enable "DTS/FLAC->LPCM remux"

If you have Receiver with DTS support, enable "Keep DTS...". In this case PMS will send not touched original DTS stream(masked as LPCM 2.0) directly to your receiver.
It doesn't matter if HDMI or Optical cable used.
Yes, PS3 doesn't support DTS when played outside physical media(DVD/BD). Because of that DTS is masked as LPCM 2.0 so PS3 ignores any audio processing and send it to receiver as is.
So everybody who has external receiver with DTS support, use "Keep DTS..." instead of LPCM remux. Also this remux can't work with optical cable because of bandwidth limitation. Optical/Toslink doesn't support more than stereo uncompressed LPCM stream.

As to the sound difference, there's no real difference other than being able to use the decoding capabilities of your receiver. However, that could mean different processing is applied to each type (LPCM vs DTS bitstream) depending on how you've configured your receiver or just the receiver itself.
And to note, you can leave both options enabled, so DTS is left as DTS and FLAC is still converted to LPCM.
