hey guys

finally i have decided on a projector. i am going to get the optoma hd33. I am new to hometheater systems. this one is going to be quite small. infact, i only want a 2.1 speaker system. i have realised the projector has no audio out.

i plan to connect my ps3 to it for 3d gaming. also plan to connect the computer for 3d video playback. both via hdmi.

what should i do to connect sound to the projector? i am looking at a cheap $50 logitk 2.1 speaker system for now. and one more question, if i connect my ps3 into dvd player and then dvd player to projector, i would lose 3d right.

i am low on cash atm. so settling for cheap audio temperorarily.

can someone please help?

many thanks in advance.

I didn't know you could do 3D on projectors yet.

It wouldn't make sense to run sound through a projector, you'd run from your source to a receiver, then out to the sound and video subsystems.
