Yes, you'll have to go to the settings in the receiver for optical input and PS3 to output via optical. I recommend Monoprice's RedMere ultra slim high performance HDMI cables.

Hey all. Looking for some advice as I'm in the market for a new AVR. I had a very odd scenario which led me to my search. I had recently finished my home theater. When introducing the final component (xfinity box) I had a surge thru the cable line. This caused the entire HDMI board on my Sony AVR to die and in turn spread to my other components. So the hdmi boards on my ps4, Xbox one and projector all need to be replaced. Only the projector is under warranty. The moral is: never trust anything Xfinity/Comcast. They came out and looked at everything and won't reimburse me.

So because my Sony 5.2 AVR cost me $200 and isn't worth sending in to fix being out of warranty, I was looking at the 5.1 Marantz. Here's my hesitation, I noticed the Marantz is rated at 50w per channel. My Sony was rated at 100 per channel. Now, I'm aware that ratings are mostly BS, but I was happy with the way the Sony pushed my Klipsch reference speakers. Marantz owners, will this receiver be enough to push my system for movies? I really don't listen to music in the HT, so my concern is specifically in pushing big and accurate sound for films. Thanks
