Yep, for HD sound you need a dedicated 3D player and a reciever capable of hdmi 1.4.....I think. Renently got a Samsung UE46D8000 and need to upgrade my reciever and get a dedicated player. Does the slim support 1.4 at all?
Works fine, not sure why you'd specify certain models? All PS3's will play 3D bluray fine. Also this whole 1.3 v 1.4 is made too big an issue. I'm using nearly 3 year old hdmi cables and never had a problem with 3D.....they most certainly are not 1.4 either.
