I'm looking at upgrading my Sony 5.1 home theatre in a box solution (DAV-500w I think) and need some expert help! The main reason for the upgrade is a recent purchase of a Playstion 3, and I’m very keen to use the HDMI connection in order to have surround sound for games and of course blu ray movies.
I am thinking of purchasing an Onkyo TX-SR605, and using the speakers from the Sony unit. I'm I crazy doing this? I understand this will mean I will only have 5.1 sound, which I'm quite happy to put up with until I get more money together.
However, will the Onkyo work okay with this setup? Are there better options than the Onkyo for 5.1 sound with the ability to repeat HDMI audio from my Playstaion (and not have to use an optical cable etc etc)
Any help much appreciated.
