I've bought a Marantz NR1504 HDMI slim line series AVR last month and its been working like a charm with my 60VT60. I've also been using the Monoprice slim line redmere cables and they are fantastic as well.
Thinking about buying a 103D and read on another thread that its possible to connect a cable box to the player? I'm curious to know how big of a difference it makes and if there's any lip sync issues? My configuration would be Cable box > Oppo 103D > Marantz HDMI receiver > Panny 60VT60 via ARC 2.
I've been dying to play Last of Us or Far Cry 3 on my new 60VT60 but scared to death of IR. I'm considering buying a cheap LCD open box just for gaming but I don't play enough, 4-5 hours a week, to justify the expense.
