    Hi all.

    I currently have a ps3 but as most people are aware this won't give me true Hd sound to my amp (Onkyo 875)

    I'm looking for my amp to decode the signal via HDMI so i get a nice little logo on my amp :thumbsup:.


    Not to sure what I'm best to look for to be honest and i take it i need to send the signal via bitstream to the 875?

    Would the Sony S350 do all of this and give me all the HD sounds including DTS-HD Master

    Is it worth putting more money towards a Sony BDPS550 MR DVD or a Panasonic DMPBD55. Or would the Sony S350 be enough?

    Any advice please anybody.

    Thanks

    It will if you set the PS3 to LPCM :smashin: PS3 decodes TrueHD/DTS-MA and then sends to the amp. :) But no bitstream.
    Bitstream HD audio then? S350 or BD35 are good choices.
    All the best.

    So it's not worth paying more for the S550 as i've read the S350 and the S550 have the same picture quality?

    Thanks.
