Hey All,

Just wondering if the Onkyo HT-S5100 would work for HDMI audio processing so I can finally make use of the DTS HD and Dolby True HD from my PS3. I read the manual online but still don't know for sure.

Any help would be great!

Thanks!

IIRC, you need to go to the 6100 or some non-Onkyo equivalent to get a receiver that processes audio received via HDMI.

Does anyone know if the new Onkyo HT-RC160 supports HDMI audio? I know the TX-SR607 does but it's ~$500 and the TX-SR606 is hard to find new.

If you see the phrase:
"TrueHD/DTS-HD decoding"
Or the symbols, it will do what you're asking.

The TX-SR507 model says it supports those audio formats but the receiver does not infact support HDMI audio and video processing...

I'm not familiar with the 507 but if they say it features TrueHD then it handles audio over HDMI. Are people reporting that this is not true?

Video processing is another thing...

I don't think that's quite accurate. Just because it can handle TrueHD/DTS-HD" via HDMI doesn't mean it can handle 5.1/7.1 PCM via HDMI.

That said I'm pretty sure all receivers can handle 5.1/7.1 PCM these days, especially Onkyo receivers.

I'd be curious to know an example where that's the case. It could be true but I only recall receivers that could handle HDMI audio the other way around; they could support PCM via HDMI but didn't have the ability to decode the lossless codecs internally. Every receiver I know of that can decode TrueHD/DTS-HD internally can also handle PCM via HDMI.

Though, like you said, it's pretty much a moot point these days.

The sony hts-s360 says that in mode PLII MV mode that it will decode Dolby pro logic II surround into 5.1 via HDMI. Does that mean it makes the list?

I've been doing alot of searching, and most of the list is discontinued nowadays. anyone got some more current info?

I just bought some Jensen 5.1 surround for $600 Australian, and now I'm looking for a 5.1ch AVR with LPCM over HDMI to play blurays via ps3 and still cant find much concrete info. what'd be my cheapest solution?

thanks

Any of the Onkyos that show "HDMI Version - V1.3a Repeater" support video + audio. The HT-RC160 specs show this.

Also, as to the original point of this post, wrt the PS3 not being able to output Bitstream audio, as of this last week, with the latest firmware upgrade, the PS3 can now output bitstream audio, making this post kind of out-dated. But, I believe that, as a recent poster said, most receivers can input lcpm nowadays with no problem. I'm looking at the Onkyo HT-S7200 for use with my PS3 and iPhone.

This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Only the new PS3 slim can output bitstream audio, so the topic is still valid for owners of the old fatter PS3 models.

Good evening everyone, and thank for you keeping this thread going. I regret to say that I simply do not have the time to keep keep the list updated. I am married, am a full time student, work full time, etc. However, I hold this forum in high regard and I now that my onkyo 6100 receiver is going out on me I myself need this list updated. Here is what I propose:

I need somebody who is willing to take over the task of putting together the list, and keeping it updated. That person would send me an e mail with the updated list, and I would format it and put it on here. While I dont have time to do the extensive research, I can at least do the posting. If anybody is interested, PM me.

Please be gentle, I'm a audio newbie!

Why isn't the Panasonic SC-HT56 included on this list? According to this review at Amazon
http://www.amazon.com/review/R185KZI...cm_cr_rdp_perm
it can decode PCM.

Also, the manual on page 9 says:
Notes on digital input
This unit can decode the following signals:
PCM, including PCM with sampling frequencies of 96 kHz
or 88.2 kHz


The unit has 2 HDMI in and 1 HDMI out.

For reference, the manual can be downloaded here:
http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-e.../model.SC-HT56

Thanks!

EDIT 2/8/2010: I now own both the Panasonic SC-HT56 and the Panasonic DMP-BD60 (blu ray player that decodes DTS-MA and DOLBY-TRUEHD). The SC-HT56 can decode PCM. I really like the system, for the value and features (5.1 setup, 2 HDMI in, good sound quality according to my newbie ears, viera link if you have other Panasonic components, standard cables, paid ~$210). Too bad it seems to be discontinued.

Bose just released new systems the Lifestyle T20, V25 & V35 (all 5.1 systems)
http://www.bose.com/controller?url=/...lass/index.jsp

They "can decode Dolby Digital TrueHD and uncompressed multichannel PCM from Blu-ray Disc Players. DTS-MA (master audio) contains only the 5.1 “core.” "

Hey AV Masters

I have about a grand I would like to spend on a 5.1 system for my home theater.
Can anyone recommend a system that has a 1000 or more watts, blu ray, Netflix streaming, iphone/ipod compatibility and here is the kicker..... wireless rear speakers?

I am not averse to going to a component system and buying a BD player with Netflix but a networked receiver with DLNA is very important for content sharing.
I have been looking at the LG LHB975 and I really like it.

Add the WWW and HTTP infront of this bad boy

lg.com/us/tv-audio-video/home-theater-systems/LG-home-theater-system-LHB975.jsp

Anyone have experience with LG, this unit or Wireless Rears?

Thanks for your help.

NO!!!!! Get a separate based system which has its own receiver, speaker set and, separate Blu-ray player You will get far superior sound quality and a system that is no disposable and something you can grow with

Something like the Denon DHT-591ba

My best suggestion is create a whole new thread in this forum with your budget and the size of your room as well as your specific wants and we will be able to accommodate you that way

Not many people check this thread so your best starting your own.
