I'm currently looking for an AV Receiver to connect to PS3 and then to TV.
I want to use a receiver with HDMI passthru.
There seem to be very few that will do what I want them to. I guess i want hi-end without paying more than $1000...
One unit Sony STR-DG810. Has the functions i require. HDMI passthru, surround sound, 1080p upscale.
There are a few things I don't understand...
What uncompressed PCM is and how it is relivent to surround. Ie playing games? I have read that some AV recievers dont do PCM or linear PCM properly and games dont play 6.1. So LPCM seems important enough to be essential.
Is there anything else to consider? Not to worried about the number of channels. And the +/- 1% seems fairly resonable for the amps.
Any other worthwhile amps?
PS. From sony.co.nz the receiver retails for nz$899 and from ebay [via New York] inc. post works out to nz$433 ... It also retails in Aust. For Aus$899. Go figure that.
