IF you are using a PS3 for gaming and blueray you might want to wait to see if Sony does a firmware update to output HD sound over HDMI from the PS3. I am waiting for that to happen and will consider upgrading my old Denon amp to the 605 then, as there will be some tangible benefit. Otherwise if you do not have an HD sound source you might be wasting money.....

You make it sound like the PS3 cannot output HD sound with an Onkyo 605 at the moment. I don't think this is true. At the moment it does this as PCM rather than Bitstream, but you can still get the HD sound, just processed by the player rather than the Amp.
