    Anyone know of any systems that can take PCM sound from BD on PS3 thru HDMI? I need a system to process lossless sound thru HDMI. The BD collection is starting to build up...but now want the sound quality to match the stunning picture.

    Are there any already available or even any coming soon?
    Would prefer a 7.1 but will settle for a 5.1 for now.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Just about to ask the same question.

    Does anyone have any ideas?
    Was thinking of the HTSF1000/1100 which would give me 5.1 but since the PS3 can give up to 7.1 then why not...

    Anyone got some suggestions or advice?

    Thanks.:clap:

    Chris.

    Was hoping the Sony HTSF 1100 would have been capable of this but its not:(

    Is there anything that will?

    Your best bet would be to go through the seperates route, amp + speakers. There is so much choice, and you could buy a 5.1 setup, and then save for the 7.1 setup.

    AFAIK, All-In-One Systems are mostly aimed at "amatauer" AV fans, and processing lossless audio isn't high on the list. Not even all of them have optical/co-ax in.
