I have a pair of Definitive Technology Mythos STS for front channel, an Acurus Act III processor, a Samsung 4069, a PS3, a California Audio Labs Icon Mk. II CD player, and an Acurus A200X3.
I am thinking about upgrading the processor to a newer receiver - Marantz, Denon or Onkyo ... or maybe even Sony - but am not sure that I really need to look for in light of a lot of the threads saying you don't need a receiver with internal codecs when you have a PS3 with the latest codecs. Is this correct?
I played the Def Techs on the system as is and they sounded really great. Does anyone see a reason to upgrade the processor to receiver, and if so, which one would you recommend?
