Does anyone know if the Bose Lifestyle 38 or 48 are capable of processing LPCM/PCM?

No those systems don't have an HDMI input, only a digial coaxial or digital optical, which cannot handle the bandwidth needed for PCM 5.1/7.1

They can do PCM 2.0, over their digial coaxial or digital optical ports though...

On a related note I've been trying to do more research into whether or not other people have confirmed they can get PCM 5.1 audio on the bose V20 and V30 which are listed in the first post of this thread.

According to users from another thread - the Bose V20 and V30 should be taken off this list. While they seem to accept a PCM signal, users in avsforum thread 939249 (post #17) have reported they can only get a down-mixed PCM 2.0 from the V20/V30's when PCM 5.1 is input to them over HDMI.

Hey Ecuadorian, thanks again for all the help you gave a while back. Yes, I have not updated this thread in a very long time, and I apologize. I have been caught up with many things and have not had time to be online for a while now. I was out of town in a vacation, and I was also out of town at a guitar competition, also caught up with looking for some more scholarships and looking for a new job. Again, I apologize to everyone for abandoning this thread for so long. I am sorry about listing the equipment on my sig, believe it or not I am absent minded enough to have completely missed the red bold letters..lol..it runs in the family. Well, I guess I better get to work on updating this thing.

So far, what has been found to be the best value/performance on the list?

That is in fact a very hard question to answer, and I really do not thing I could personally answer that question for you. The only thing I do know, however, is that the HT-CT100 is very well liked and is probably one of the best options out there for those who wanna keep their budget minimal and who do not care to have a simulated surround system rather than a real one. Also, I hate to incline towards a certain but it we talk about value and price with an acceptable performance, it seems that Sony is doing the job. Granted, the Sony is not the best out there, but just look at the str dg20. those feature only 299? i think is a very good deal. Harmon Kardon and Denon are probably gonna easily beat Sony in performance, while Onkyo and and Yamaha are probably around the same level, and some models might be quite superior but still, it seems like somehow Sony remains cheaper. This is just my personal opinion, please dont flame till I burn.

This thread is invaluable to me and many other PS3 owners who must have audio over HDMI.

Thank you very much sir, I appreciate you being understanding. But fear not! I am back.

Hey, from doing some researching, I believe that the Onkyo 601 and 602 and 603 cannot handle HDMI audio. In fact, from what I read none of them even have any HDMI ins or outs (only components for HD.) So, not all Onkyo SR6XX's and above can handle HDMI audio.

I will look into that when I get home tonight, thanks for the heads up

Onkyo TX-SR576 process 5.1/7.1 PMC as well.
post #75 of 212
Please Harman Kardon CP-60 CP-65 to the list. These are HTiB that use AVR247 and AVR347 and handle HDMI audio.

You are right. When I read this somehow I still thought pass through.

For receivers you can add:

Harman Kardon:
AVR-247
AVR-347
AVR-254/354/754 (coming spring/summer 2008)

Onkyo:
TX-SR605
TX-SR705
TX-SR875

Yamaha:
RX-V661

The receiver list is going to get very long as the feature will be much more common going forward.

Are there any more HK receivers that support 1080p HDMI?

I'm amused at this thread - why would anyone buy an HTIB suddenly care about LPCM processing.. "i bought a toyota corolla and now I want turbo and an afterburner"

The same reason Mustang owners modify their cars while getting laughed at by Ferrari owners.

Anyone of these HTiB retail for under $400? I know thats a stretch, buy my wife is gunho about getting the DAVHDX275 simply because it comes with an iPod dock. I was trying to convince her on getting the Yamaha FHT 390, but then I found out it does not do PCM. A few months ago, I was dying to get the Onkyo sp908, but its out of our budget. Any suggestions guys?
post #89 of 212
I think the sony ss2000 and sony ss2300 are exactly 400. I'm not sure how great the speakers are, or how they differ.
post #90 of 212
Oh wow, going to go and research those. I need a decent receiver that can do audio passthrough and proper switching.
